It was the end to the five-game losing streak but this was not a win for the ages. In fact it was one of the worst 60 minutes of football seen in the NFL for many years.  Offensive futility, penalties and mistakes galore.  The Bucs managed to earn themselves a decisive lead late in the fourth quarter and then still nearly threw it away at the end.  Ryan Fitzpatrick started for the injured Jameis Winston and Mike Evans was suspended.
