Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston heard the familiar "war chant" at Arrowhead Stadium throughout Sunday's win against the Chiefs, and the former Seminoles quarterback said he was motivated by something else from his college days, dedicating the game to Monk Bonasorte, the former FSU player and senior associate athletic director who died Sunday morning at age 59 after battling brain cancer.

"I really dedicate this game to Monk Bonasorte," Winston said on the podium after Tampa Bay's unlikely 19-17 win over the Chiefs, who had won 10 straight games at home. "He was the (senior associate) athletic director at Florida State. He passed away between 1 and 2 a.m. this morning, and he really meant a lot to me. If the Bonasorte family is listening: Thank you and I love you."

Here's the story from FSU's official site on Bonasorte's death Sunday morning.
