In all seriousness, though, Winston had eight interceptions in his first four games this year but has only two (to go with 12 touchdown passes) in his past six. His passer rating over that time is 102.2 — eighth-best in the league. The Bucs are only a game out of first place, but even if they don’t have enough to make a serious run this year, there’s a lot to feel good about in Tampa. The only hitch is that the fans may have to get on a plane to see the team win.
The Vikings can’t win when their offense has to provide all of the Benardrick McKinney Authentic Womens Jersey offense.
Six of Minnesota’s 22 touchdowns this year have come on defense or special teams. The Vikings are 4-0 when they get a defensive or special-teams touchdown, and 2-4 when they don’t. They needed a 100-yard Xavier Rhodes interception return and a 104-yard Cordarrelle Patterson kick return to beat the Cardinals by six points at home on Sunday.
There’s no replacing quarterback Andrew Luck (concussion), who is not expected to play against the Steelers on Thursday night. That’s a given. But they also have concerns with cornerback Vontae Davis (ankle). He was seen wearing a boot on his foot earlier this week. Defending Steelers Pro Bowl receiver Antonio Brown would be challenging enough for Davis when completely healthy. He’ll really have his hands full trying to slow the speedy Brown down while bothered by his ankle injury.
Quarterback Blake Bortles is dealing with a sprained shoulder, and he’ll have some stiffness and pain this week. He is expected to play against Buffalo, however. Running back T.J. Yeldon’s sprained right ankle is a bigger issue, though, and he may not practice much, if Braxton Miller Authentic Womens Jersey at all, this week, and that makes him iffy for the Bills game. That would mean more work for Chris Ivory and Denard Robinson.
“It would have to be at the right place and the right time, which is what I’ve always said. I try to make good decisions, what’s best for my family and myself. Again, somebody would have to offer that opportunity because you’re lucky if you get that. That’s my mindset, and anything that was reported about my thinking or my plans or the things that I want to do — the other day I saw that; those things I would say are unfounded.
“That being said, that’s all I’ll say about it. I love being here, I’m excited to get to work on the Jets, and look forward to practicing with our guys.”
Potential solace: Buccaneers rookie kicker Roberto Aguayo, who only last week succeeded in officially having the word “beleaguered” removed from in front of his name on all documentation, was 4-for-4 on field goals and hit his only extra point attempt Sunday. So it can get better, kickers. It can get better.
