Jameis Winston made history on Sunday. In a weird way.
The Buccaneers’ general was on the cliff of history entering Tampa Bay Week 17 against the Falcons. with two more violations, he would be the first quarterback in NFL history to fly for 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions at the same time.
Well, the first overs landed in Ricardo Allen’s hands in the second quarter. The second option will come much later – overtime – and seal the win for the Falcons.

Winston not only enters the record book as the starting member of the 30-30 club, but also sets the record for most pick-sixes thrown in a season, with seven. Winston, a freelance post-season agent, also set high career highs in flights (33), yards (5,109) and interceptions (30) in Bruce Arians’ first season as a Tampa Bay coach.
The Arians made a little of a comeback at the time of Winston’s mixed bags after the loss.
Bruce Arians says that “there is so much good and so utterly awesome” about evaluating Jameis Winston and the future.

There have been no talks of extending contracts with Winston, who has a 28-42-0 record with the Bucs since joining the NFL in 2015.
