Winston shows progress in Bucs victory over Bengals

Jameis Winston

TAMPA, Fla. – It’s only preseason, but Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston is clearly making strides as an NFL quarterback. The first overall pick in this year’s draft scored a 1-yard touchdown run after he was nearly flawless on the first drive of the game, and the Buccaneers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 25-11 on Monday night.

Winston was 3-of-3 passing for 27 yards, leading an 80-yard scoring drive that set the tone for a tough night for the Bengals (1-1), who yielded 52 yards rushing to Doug Martin along the way. Winston limped off the field, done for the night, two plays after appearing to tweak his right ankle when he was sacked by Geno Atkins and Wallace Gilberry early in the second quarter.
