This was a wild one with the lead changing hands three times in the final quarter but the Bucs came out on top when Nick Folk’s field-goal squeezed inside the left upright as time expired.  Jameis Winston had three touchdown passes and led the game-winning drive inside the final three minutes.  Folk had earlier missed two fieldgoals and an extra point but came through when necessary to send the Bucs to 2-1 on the season.
