DIRK SHADD | Times

Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston heads into the tunnel after he is stopped short of the end zone on the final play of the game trying to find an open receiver in the end zone.

"This one's going to sit on my shoulders for a long time. First touchdown, I had a one-on-one and I missed with my hands. I was thinking about that the rest of the game. I know this one's going to bug me all night."

DT Gerald McCoy

"We knew the defense was going to get a stop. We put ourselves in position to have a chance to win the game. We just didn't make a play at the end. It's unfortunate. Definitely some positives we can take, but any time you lose a game … especially such a winnable game like that, when our offense was clicking at certain points, that's one you hope you can win."

TE Cameron Brate

"I was trying to bait them, get closer to the end zone. In that moment, I have to give somebody a chance in the end zone. … That was dumb on my part."

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — with a season-high seven-plus innings. It wasn't only that he got deep into the game but how, using his high-octane fastball to pound the strike zone.
