Bucs' Jameis Winston is NFL Offensive Rookie of Month
After guiding the Bucs to three wins, quarterback Jameis Winston has been named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for November, just the third time ever a Tampa Bay quarterback has earned the honors.
Winston threw for 1,179 yards in November, with seven touchdown passes and three more scoring rushing, against only three interceptions. Winston has already reset the Bucs rookie record for passing yards in a season and is on pace for the third-most by a rookie in NFL history.
Winston joins Shaun King (1999) and Mike Glennon (2013) as the only Bucs quarterbacks to win the monthly rookie honor. Two current Bucs have won league-wide rookie honors, as Doug Martin was the top offensive rookie in October 2012 and Lavonte David was the top defensive rookie in November 2012. Winston has also been honored as NFL Rookie of the Week a league-high three times this season.
