The Bucs set a franchise record scoring 55 points in pulling off a stunning upset of the undefeated defending NFC champion Rams in their own stadium.  Four Jameis Winston passing touchdowns and a clinching fumble return score negated the 517 yards passing day from Jared Goff.   Matt Gay bounced back with a perfect kicking day including a 58-yard fieldgoal, the longest ever kicked by a Buccaneer on the road.
