Jameis Winston thanks Chiefs fans who 'really made me feel at home'

Arrowhead Stadium is a really difficult place to play, especially with the Chiefs playing well. Kansas City fans get loud and make it tough on opposing teams.

Unless you're Jameis Winston.

The Buccaneers quarterback, as noted by Joe Bucs Fan, actually LIKED the noise Chiefs fans were making, because it reminded him so much of college.

Winston, who spent two years playing for Florida State, is right at home with thousands of fans doing the war chant loudly on third down, and he said after the game that he soaked it right up, particularly on third down.

This isn't just post-game trolling from Winston either.

Joe Bucs Fan reports hearing Winston talking with a member of the front office after his trip to the podium. And Winston pointed out what he relayed to his teammates.

"On third down if [Chiefs fans] do what they did in Tallahassee, on third downs we will be [solid]," Winston said.

Winston wasn't wrong -- the Bucs went 11 for 16 on third down Sunday, converting 69 percent of their attempts.

Must be nice to get a free "home" game courtesy of the crowd.
