Tampa Bay Buccaneers 22   Atlanta Falcons 28 Sunday 29 December 2019        at  Raymond James Stadium
The only fitting way for the 2019 season to end was with a pick six interception, the NFL-record setting seventh for Jameis Winston who also became the first QB ever with 30 TDs and 30 interceptions in a single season.  Winston did exceed the 5,000 yard mark for the year but three missed fieldgoals by Matt Gay ultimately proved to be the difference in this one.  Shaq Barrett’s three sacks took him to a new franchise record of 19.5 for the season.
