That Bucs QB Jameis Winston has gone four consecutive games without a turnover is among his most impressive stats in an impressive rookie season.

If he can do it again against the Cowboys, making it five straight games without an interception, he'll find himself in rare company in the Super Bowl era.

In that span, only two other quarterbacks have played five consecutive games and thrown at least 100 pass attempts without an interception: Charlie Batch did so with the Lions in 1998, and Bernie Kosar did so in 1985 with the Browns.

Only four QBs in the NFL have gone five consecutive games without an interception — the Chiefs' Alex Smith has a current five-game streak alive, and the Packers' Aaron Rodgers had a six-game stretch this year.

The NFL record? Winston could go the rest of this season and still be short of that mark — the Packers' Bart Starr had 14 consecutive games without an interception in 1964-65. The Patriots' Tom Brady is next on the list with 11 in a row in 2010-11.
