Bucs defensive end Will Gholston has a walking boot on his right ankle today. We'll get Bruce Arians here in a little while, and he should have more of an update on him and Jameis Winston.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Cam Brate told me after the game that he feels like the team continues to let down Jameis Winston. "The stat book will show four picks again, but they're not all on Jameis. I've kinda said that multiple times this year and that's not a good thing…because we have to be there for him and make the plays we need to..."

The 29.4 PPR fantasy points that Saints running backs scored are the most the Buccaneers have allowed in a game in 2019. The Buccaneers remain one of four teams to not allow 30-plus points to an opponent's running backs in a game this year (Patriots, Saints, Eagles).

Quarterback Jameis Winston suffered a left ankle sprain, on the medial side. They actually had Ryan Griffin warming up on the sideline. "He probably should have come out of this game," coach Bruce Arians said. "He's probably too tough for his own good." Winston said, "I'll be fine."

After the ruling on the field stood after Bruce Arians challenged Mike Evans' fourth-down pass interference penalty, a very loud and well-organized "bullish—!" chant broke out from multiple spots in the stands at Raymond James Stadium.

In the first half against the Saints, Jameis Winston was blitzed on 13-of-21 dropbacks (62%). He was pressured/under duress on 10 of them, according to ESPN Stats & Info. They have struggled to control the line of scrimmage with the run game too.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Jameis Winston has been under constant duress this whole first half against the Saints. Dennis Allen has been blitzing virtually every chance he gets. And just like the Saints took away Mike Evans in their first meeting, he's had just one catch for six yards, even without Marshon Lattimore.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

This is insane: The Saints have possessed the ball for 20:01 in the first half compared to the Bucs' 4:46 (with 5:13 to go). That's the result of OJ Howard's fumble and getting a total of two first downs compared to the Saints' 13.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans was rendered catchless last time the Bucs played the Saints, but this time, they'll be without Marshon Lattimore. He needs 76 yards today to join Randy Moss as the only NFL receivers to have 1,000 yards in each of their first six seasons.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Sean Murphy-Bunting and the rest of the Bucs' cornerbacks face an enormous task this week against Drew Brees and Michael Thomas. He told me he's been putting in 12-hour days at the team facility since his role increased.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Not sure anybody gets more hyped than Jason Pierre-Paul, who just screamed loudly in the tunnel, "Yeah babyyyyy....it's game time!" Here he is, moments before that, with family.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

A lot has changed for the Bucs and Jameis Winston since they last faced the Saints: Their screen game has expanded, especially with the emergence of Ronald Jones, and Demar Dotson and Alex Cappa are healthy again. OJ Howard's also starting to find his groove in Bruce Arians' offense.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

For those thinking the Saints may be vulnerable after falling to the Falcons last week — Drew Brees has lost consecutive division games in a single season just four times since joining the Saints: 2016 (at CAR, at TB), 2014 (CAR, ATL), 2008 (3 straight, all on the road) and 2007 (at TB, CAR), per ESPN Stats and Information.
