Tampa Bay Earns Bragging Rights Over Jacksonville in a Sunshine State Showdown

Cannons fired in Tampa Bay on Sunday as the Buccaneers beat the Jaguars 38-31. This win snapped the Bucs’ 11-game losing streak on their home field. Quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 209 yards and no interceptions, which was a big improvement from his five turnovers to Carolina last week.

“It’s my job to take care of the ball. I made a lot of very simple decisions today and the running game was amazing. So when I’m making the right decision and not turning the ball over, you see how productive our offense can be,” said Winston.

Although Jags quarterback Blake Bortles threw four touchdown passes, he was sacked six times and threw an interception. Jacksonville also gave up a 58-yard punt return and a fumble that led Tampa Bay to a touchdown. Jags head coach Gus Bradley said he was disappointed with his team’s performance.

“I’m hoping that this setback shocks us to get things right,” Bradley said. “I believe in these guys. The reason I’m upset is that I know they’re capable of better. And that’s what’s frustrating… we’ve got enough good players in that locker room to do better than what we’re doing.”

The Jaguars will be back in Jacksonville next Sunday to host Houston; the Bucs will have a bye week before playing Washington on Sunday, October 25th.

Down in Miami, the Dolphins are coming off a bye-week and will hit the road to Tennessee on Sunday to take on the Titans.
