22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jameis Winston was certainly on the hot seat heading into Thursday’s game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Carolina Panthers, and while the former No. 1 pick deserves plenty of credit for a solid performance, he still has a long way to go.
Unlike the previous week in which he tossed three interceptions against the San Francisco 49ers, Winston did a much better job at protecting the football in the win over the Panthers by finishing without any turnovers.
Part of the reason why the Buccaneers were so excited about the hiring of Bruce Arians as their new head coach in the offseason was due to his previous experience in getting the best from quarterbacks.
As mentioned before, Winston still has plenty to prove, but Arians earning that first win under the Buccaneers was a huge first step in the right direction.
Most quarterbacks would love to have a wide receiver like Mike Evans to work with in the passing game since his massive size gives him a major advantage over opponents, but how about the Week 2 performance by Chris Godwin?
Tampa Bay already felt confident enough in Godwin elevating his game to a new level in 2019, and watching the wideout catch eight passes for 121 yards to go along with a score was great to see for the Buccaneers to help take down the Panthers.
