Breshad Perriman in right place on go-ahead touchdown pass
Eduardo Encina, Tampa Bay Times, published 4 November 2019

Breshad Perriman hadn't caught a pass in six weeks, and his first touchdown catch of the season on Sunday afternoon was more a product of being in the right place at the right time than anything else.

Jameis Winston's improvised pass into the end zone late in the first quarter was into traffic, but near both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Neither would catch it, as the ball hit off Evans, ricocheted into the air and into Perriman's waiting hands inside as his feet cradled the near sideline for a go-ahead touchdown.

Perriman, who has struggled to produce in the team's No. 3 receiver role, entered the day with just three catches on 16 targets for a total of 16 yards in five games. He hadn't caught a pass since the Bucs' Sept. 22 home game against the Giants, and take away a two-catch game in Week 1, and Perriman caught just one ball this season on 11 targets.

Despite not being a factor throughout the Bucs' 37-23 loss in Nashville, Perriman became a curious target of Winston late in the game, seeing five passes thrown his way — all of them incomplete — in the game's final minutes in a one-score game.

But on a third and 11 play at the Seahawks 15-yard line, Winston stepped up in the pockets to dodge the rush and scramble while looking into the end zone. Just before he reached the line of scrimmage, and with Evans, Godwin and Perriman all in the end zone, he tried to needle a pass to Evans that appears to hit off his shoulder pads and into the air.

Winston's pass was like many of his ill-advised throws this season, and in most situations would have led to an interception, but this time, a heady play by Perriman led to a touchdown. Perriman, who was running along the sideline, caught the ball in the end zone, giving the Bucs a 14-7 lead that, following a Matt Gay extra point — gave the Bucs a 14-7 lead with 47 second left in the first quarter.
