All eyes will be on Winston, but shouldn't someone watch the rest?/ANDREW J. KRAMER

Friday, 6 a.m.

If a drop of sweat runs down his cheek, you will see it.

If he shakes his head at a play call, you will see it.

If he freshens his chewing gum between second down and third, you will see it.

There is nothing that Jameis Winston can do tonight that will not be charted, observed and discussed. This is his debut, the first time we have seen him against other colored jerseys, and he might as well be in a glass jar. Tonight is all about the quarterback. How he drops back. How he hands off. How he checks down. How he moves around.

You will not be able to keep your eyes from him. If he throws a near-interception, you will talk about it for a week. If he finds a secondary receiver in the corner of the end zone, you will smile about it for days. If finds Mike Evans over the middle for 14 yards, you're going to be willing to buy playoff tickets.
