TAMPA — The Jameis Winston-Peyton Manning comparisons continued on the first drive Saturday against Houston when for the sixth time this season Winston threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown. His sixth pick-six tied him with Peyton Manning for the NFL single-season record.
Houston’s Bradley Roby returned Winston’s first pass of the day 27 yards for a touchdown.
Winston nearly did it again on the Bucs’ second possession, but Justin Reid’s 27-yard interception return was nullified by a Houston illegal block on the return. Houston settled for a Ka’imi Fairbairn’s 32-yard field goal and a 10-0 lead.
