Not everything went Tampa Bay’s way, though. Ronald Jones II continues to struggle in the backfield and penalties took some points off the board.

<![CDATA[Jameis Winston throws 2 TDs as Tampa Bay beats Titans 30-14]]> Jameis Winston gave the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a potent reminder of what they will miss when the quarterback sits out his three-game suspension to start the regular season.

<![CDATA[Hindsight: Would Bucs fans still take Jameis Winston over Marcus Mariota?]]> Jameis Winston, or Oregon’s Marcus Mariota?

The two quarterbacks have had their peaks and valleys over the past three seasons, with injuries holding Mariota back, off-field issues and turnovers doing the same for Winston.

Winston has put up bigger numbers across the board, but Mariota has gotten his Tennessee Titans to the postseason, something the Bucs haven’t managed in more than 15 years]]> 5275291 Sat, 18 Aug 2018 19:39:01 EDT Bucs Wire
<![CDATA[Titans vs. Buccaneers: 5-question preview with Bucs Wire]]>
We got a good look at the Bucs in practice, but it’s difficult to glean a ton of info from a couple practice sessions.

To get a little more in-depth info on the Titans’ second preseason opponent, we jumped over to the Bucs Wire and chatted with Luke Easterling. He talked about Marcus Mariota vs. Jameis Winston, some Bucs rookies, and where Tampa Bay will thrive this season on each side of the ball]]> 5273485 Thu, 16 Aug 2018 17:18:01 EDT Titans Wire
<![CDATA[Joint practices reunite QBs Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota]]> Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota will be on the same practice field for a couple days, though their football careers will be forever linked. They practiced on the same field Wednesday for one period as Winston's Tampa Bay Buccaneers worked out with Mariota's Tennessee Titans. There ...]]> 5272703 Wed, 15 Aug 2018 18:18:01 EDT Washington Times <![CDATA[Tony Dungy: Jameis Winston “has to be a leader all the time”]]> Jameis Winston, but he also challenged the Buccaneers quarterback to turn his current situation to a positive. Winston was suspended the first three games after groping an Uber driver, and for Dungy, that underscored the pressure on Winston to improve off the field as well as on.

He displayed a rare combination of throwing and running ability across three dominant years at the University of Oregon, and went into the draft with so few red flags that the lack of red flags became one. Still the Tampa Bay Buccaneers passed on him in favor of Florida State’s Jameis Winston. The Titans took Mariota at No. 2, ensuring the two would forever be linked despite two different career trajectories.

It’s hard to look at the two players’ careers so far and surmise the Bucs came away with the better pick, and Mariota’s NFL debut against Winston and Tampa Bay was a perfect embodiment of that]]> 5271897 Tue, 14 Aug 2018 19:48:01 EDT Titans Wire
<![CDATA[Razor-sharp with second team in preseason opener]]> Winston (suspension) entered the game on the Buccaneers' third possession in a 26-24 preseason win over the Dolphins on Thursday. He completed 11 of 13 passes for 102 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.

Winston entered the game in the second quarter and had a key 19-yard completion to Freddie Martino during his first possession, a drive that culminated in a three-yard touchdown run by second-round pick Ronald Jones II. The fourth-year quarterback subsequently connected with rookie Justin Watson and Cameron Brate on his second series, putting on a crisp performance overall before giving way to Ryan Griffin for the entirety of the second half. The night went about as well as it could have for Winston, who the Bucs are trying to afford enough work before he leaves the team to serve a three-game suspension to open the regular season. He'll likely see a similar workload when Tampa take on the Titans in their second preseason game a week from Saturday.

<![CDATA[Jameis Winston works well in time with the twos and threes]]> Jameis Winston is still the “starting quarterback” for the Buccaneers, but they know he’s going to miss the first three games of the regular season because of his suspension. So when he took the field Thursday night against the Dolphins, he was out there with a bunch of second- and third-stringers. He played well, completing [more]]]> 5268022 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 6:54:01 EDT
