Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the Bucs’ improbable 31-24 win over the Saints on Sunday:
Bucs’ record in one-score games.
Interceptions thrown by Jameis Winston on Sunday. He had gone two straight games without throwing a pick.
Times, in 45 career starts, that Winston has thrown multiple interceptions in a game.
Bucs’ record when Winston throws multiple interceptions. They had lost eight straight. They’re 1-4 when he throws three or more interceptions.
Bucs’ record all-time when a quarterback throws three or more interceptions.
Record of quarterbacks who have thrown three or more interceptions in a game this season (entering Week 17). Matt Ryan did it twice, and the Falcons won both times.
Winston’s touchdown-to-interception ratio this season, the best mark of his career and the eighth-best in team history (minimum 200 passes). Josh Freeman holds the record; he posted a 4.2 ratio in 2010.
Bucs giveaways this season.
Times the Bucs turned the ball over in opponent territory, including twice Sunday. Heading into this week, only the Browns turned the ball over more often in opponent territory.
