The Bucs earned their fourth win of the 2019 season on the back on a great defensive effort that recorded six sacks and its own scoring play whilst the young secondary had its best game of the year   Jameis Winston was both good and bad with two early picks but also three touchdown passes including one to DT Vita Vea who lined up as a full back in a short yardage formation.   Chris Godwin had his best career performance to date.
