Winston, Bucs stun Saints in season finale

01 January, 2018, 04:07 | Author: Anita Tucker

New Orleans Saints running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara have combined to have outstanding seasons.

The Saints scored again after capitalizing on an interception by safety Marcus Williams at midfield.

After three consecutive incompletions, Winston found tight end Cameron Brate for a 12-yard gain on fourth-and-10 and the dramatic drive was on.

Defensive end Ryan Russell got the first sack of Saints' quarterback Drew Brees during the Saints' first drive of the second half.

The Raiders have fired Jack Del Rio
The Raiders are believed to be on the verge of hiring Jon Gruden, their coach from 1998-2001, as Del Rio's replacement. They went just 2-6 on the road, unable to capitalize on a season in which they won their first two contests.

The Buccaneers (4-11) scored on a pair of 1-yard runs, the first by Peyton Barber and the second by quarterback Jameis Winston.

Tampa Bay had rallied for a fourth-quarter lead, only to see the Saints grab the lead back.

After the Bucs had taken a 24-20 lead and pinned the Saints on their 8-yard line following the kickoff, the Brees-led offense effectively sliced through Tampa Bay's defense. The Bucs dominated time of possession thanks to two 75-yard scoring drives plus converting on an incredible 10 of 11 third-down attempts.

The Bucs got a 42-yard field goal from Patrick Murray with 4:31 remaining, cutting New Orleans' lead to 24-23.

The Saints failed on an attempted fake field goal when kicker Wil Lutz was tackled one yard short of the first down.

Tampa finishes the season 5-11.

During the Bucs' final drive, wide receiver Mike Evans eclipsed 1,000 yards on the season, making him just the third player in league history to record four such seasons to start their career.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston threw a ideal 39-yard strike to Chris Godwin, capping off a 95-yard game winning drive, as Tampa stunned New Orleans, 31-24, Sunday.

Former Royals closer Wade Davis off to Colorado Rockies
Holland made $15 million this year, but he did not exercise the $15 million player option after the 2017 season. Friday's agreement totals $52m over three years and reportedly includes a fourth-year vesting option at $14m.

New Orleans would not be able to answer and the Bucs won their last game of the season, 31-24.
