You called it on the Bucs' upset of the Saints. Did you see Jameis Winston having a better game? Or did you know that Jaquies Smith was going to have three sacks?

The Bucs needed to win. For some reason they weren’t ready to play last week.

Their game against the Saints was a defining one for them in terms of credibility. They were playing the perfect team for them. The Saints are a declining team and struggle to win at home, similar to the Bucs ironically in terms of losing at home.

Yes, I felt strongly Jameis was going to play much better and he did. It wasn't a stellar game, but he did enough at his position for the Bucs
