Winston wins for first time as Bucs QB, 26-19 over Saints - US News

Winston wins for first time as Bucs QB, 26-19 over Saints - US News: ameis Winston passed for a touchdown and ran for another, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers held on to defeat the mistake-prone New Orleans Saints 26-19 on Sunday.

Winston, who was intercepted twice and sacked four times in a losing NFL debut at home a week earlier, remained largely composed in the hostile Superdome. He completed 14 of 21 passes for 207 yards and was not intercepted. He lost one fumble, but the Saints couldn't cash in, missing a 42-yard field goal.

His touchdown pass was a 15-yarder to Vincent Jackson.

The Saints turned the ball over twice on fumbles — one each by running back Mark Ingram and receiver Willie Snead — and once on Chris Conte's interception of Drew Brees. Still, New Orleans had two plays to tie it from the Bucs 27 in the final 8 seconds, but both passes fell incomplete.

The sweet science: Saints need to master the art of the pass rush Sunday against Tampa Bay | Saints | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, Louisiana

The sweet science: Saints need to master the art of the pass rush Sunday against Tampa Bay | Saints | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, Louisiana: A single, overwhelming burst of athleticism, a spontaneous combustion of pure athletic ability that ends with the destruction of a quarterback.

But rushing the passer is so much more complicated than it appears.

At the NFL level, the pass rush is every bit the sweet science that boxing can be. A great pass rusher has to approach every game like a heavyweight bout: a long game of preparation, strategy and counter moves that sometimes culminates in a single act of domination.

Sunday Night Football Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers Start Time, NFL Odds - News - Stories - Pregame.com

Sunday Night Football Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers Start Time, NFL Odds - News - Stories - Pregame.com: The Green Bay Packers host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football. The game is scheduled for an 8:30 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on NBC. Currently the NFL Odds for the game have the Packers favored by about a field goal to pick up the win.

Seattle and Green Bay have played some memorable games in recent history. The Packers are looking to get some payback from last year, when Seattle claimed a pair of victories against them. The Seahawks beat up on Green Bay to open the season and also claimed a win in the NFC Championships game, en route to a Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots.�

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are obviously still a great team, but without Kam Chancellor on the field Seattle looked poor defensively last week. Playing in the early game on the East Coast is always tough for a team from out West, and the Rams defense has a terrific front seven, but Seattle gave up 34 points last week to a team led by Nick Foles. The Rams did get a touchdown on a punt return from Tavon Austin, but Seattle should not be happy about allowing St. Louis to go 12 plays and 84 yards down the field in just under four minutes to tie the game late.�
