Winston, Bucs stun Saints in season finale

The records continue to stack up for the New Orleans Saints running backs.

The Bucs would strike again a couple drives later as Winston got the touchdown on a keeper and great second effort to break the plane.

The 4-11 Bucs will kick off against the 11-4 Saints at Raymond James Stadium at 4:25 p.m. Ingram and Kamara had already combined for 182 yards from scrimmage. Saints safety Marcus Williams intercepted Winston at the Saints' 35 to set up the drive. Safety Josh Robinson stripped Saints' Tommylee Lewis of the ball on the return and Bucs' safety Isaiah Johnson recovered, running the ball in for the score and putting the Buccaneers up 20-17 with 14:04 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The Bucs defense allowed the Saints to march 92 yards in 13 plays, going back ahead 24-20 on a 3-yard pass from Drew Brees to fullback Zach Line with 7:07 left. Lutz lined up as if to attempt a 47-yard field goal for what could have been a 17-13 Saints' lead, but he took a pitch from holder Chase Daniel instead and appeared to have an open lane for the first down.

The half ended with the Saints up 14-13 and leading in total yards 233 to 125 as quarterback Brees was 7 of 13 for 86 yards.

The Bucs connected on a 42-yard field goal on their next drive to cut New Orleans lead to 24-23 with 4:31 left on the clock.

The Pro Bowlers were already the only teammates in National Football League history with 1,300-plus scrimmage yards & more than 10 touchdowns in same season.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston threw a flawless 39-yard strike to Chris Godwin, capping off a 95-yard game winning drive, as Tampa stunned New Orleans, 31-24, Sunday.

The Saints didn't end the regular season the way they wanted, losing to the Bucs, 31-24.
