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.

  2. Trevor Plouffe is DFA'd by Rays, Kittredge recalled for now

    Blogs

    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

  3. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    The Heater

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
