Take a bow, Jameis Winston. The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback stepped in against them with the New Orleans Saints for some trickery, and it turned into a long touchdown pass to give his new squad the lead. Not bad for his debut in the playoffs Divisional Round.
Hopefully, the Saints can keep it up. They’ll need to use everything in their toolbox to beat the Bucs for the third time this season. But this memorable highlight from Winston sent observers on Twitter into a flurry:
If this play looks familiar, it’s because it’s the same exact play that the Bears ran *against* the Saints last week in which Javon Wims dropped the pass. https://t.co/wDi5faDOyx

I’m really confused as to how Tampa Bay did not see a pass play coming with Jameis Winston coming into the game? Did you think he was going to run the ball?

What exactly did you think the trick play was going to be? A run? I mean come on lol

How the hell they fall for that? What you thought Jameis was doing out there?

Jameis on the field means deep pass and EVERYONE knows it except the Bucs defense

Jameis Winston has always thrived at throwing the ball to the team playing against the Bucs.

The Taysom Hill games were a long con. Payton playing 4D chess.

Jameis throwing a TD against Tampa Bay in the Divisional Round is the best troll job SP could think of.
