The Tampa Bay Buccaneers improved to 4–5 on the season with a 10–6 win over the Cowboys on Sunday, and it was all thanks to some late-game heroics from quarterback Jameis Winston.
Winston finished the day 22 of 39 for 264 yards and two interceptions through the air, and nearly added a third turnover late. With just over a minute to go in regulation, Winston rushed up the middle for three yards, but fumbled at the goal line. The Cowboys recovered, but a holding penalty negated the play.
Winston then got the ball back, and ran in a play-action bootleg from a yard out for the game’s deciding score, completing a nine-play, 56-yard drive.
Tamps Bay heads to Philadelphia next week, while the Cowboys visit the Dolphins.
