3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Last week: 4

In one of many upsets in Week 2, Jameis Winston led the Buccaneers to victory over Drew Brees and the Saints on the road to earn his first NFL victory. Winston threw for 201 yards and a touchdown in a more composed and confident performance than we saw against the Titans.

Mike Evans—who returned from a hamstring injury—was a non-factor, but veteran Vincent Jackson played well for his 54 yards and a touchdown from three receptions. Doug Martin continues to underwhelm however, rushing 21 times for 78 yards at an average of just 3.7 yards per carry.

This is still very much a year of transition for the Buccaneers, who travel to Houston to take on J.J. Watt and the Texans this week. They have proven themselves to be a slip-up team this year; can they build on the confidence?
