  • Bucs QB Jameis Winston, WR Mike Evans set NFL records in win

Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston, who was off target for much of the day, finished by dropping a pretty 39-yard TD pass into receiver Chris Godwin over the head of Saints cornerback Ken Crawley with nine seconds remaining.

The Saints didn't end the regular season the way they wanted, losing to the Bucs, 31-24. That led to the punt to the 5-yard line, which Winston converted into a massive opportunity.

New Orleans, which won its first NFC South title since 2011, did not blink, though.

But Saints return man Tommylee Lewis was stripped by Tampa Bay's Josh Robinson and the fumble was recovered by Isaiah Johnson, who scooped it up and scored from the 7.

Kamara topped 1,500 yards in impressive fashion, hauling a 40-yard pass from Drew Brees. The Bucs dominated time of possession thanks to two 75-yard scoring drives plus converting on an fantastic 10 of 11 third-down attempts.

Godwin has seven receptions for 111 yards.

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.

Evans joined an elite group, reaching 1,000 receiving yards for the fourth-straight season.

The Saints went up, 14-7, on a 7-yard touchdown run by Kamara to close a 65-yard drive in six plays. The Saints stopped one Tampa drive when rookie safety Marcus Williams made his third interception of the season and on another when linebacker Craig Robertson picked off Winston.

The Buccaneers drove 75 yards in 12 plays to cut it to 14-13 at the 5:50 mark of the second quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run by Winston on third-and-goal. Murray's extra-point attempt gave the Bucs a 20-17 lead.
