Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was downright atrocious against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Entering this week’s action, Winston had thrown six interceptions and fumbled the ball four times in three games (two starts).

It didn’t get any better Sunday. In fact, Winston might have put up the worst performance of his career. It started with a red-zone interception early in the first quarter and culminated in a pick-six in the third quarter.

All said, Winston threw four interceptions in less than three full quarters of action. And in the end, he was benched in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick.

This wasn’t lost on the football world, which reacted in kind.
