Among those leading the charge for Tampa Bay was Jameis Winston, who accumulated 365 passing yards and picked up 55 yards on the ground on 10 carries.

Meanwhile, it's never fun to lose, and it's even less fun to lose 10-45, which was the final score in Cincinnati's tilt against Kansas City. Cincinnati were down by 10-38 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.
