11. Winston gets benched

Remember all of the excitement surrounding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in Week 4 after their surprise win over the Los Angeles Rams?

Since that victory, the Buccaneers have suffered two key losses in a row within the NFC South against the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers, meaning the pressure will be on Sunday when taking on the Tennessee Titans.

Around this time last week, a meeting with Tennessee seemed like the perfect opportunity for Tampa Bay to end their losing streak, but this Titans team seems to have found new life with Ryan Tannehill taking over the starting job.

Not to mention, with the way Tennessee’s defense has looked at times this season, this seems like another game in which the struggles could be there for Jameis Winston on offense.

Disaster seems like the best way to describe how things went for Winston in London during the loss to the Panthers, as the former No. 1 pick’s performance has football fans questioning if he even deserves to be the Buccaneers quarterback beyond 2019.

Sadly, it wouldn’t be a surprise at all if Winston put together another disappointing performance to the point where Bruce Arians had no other choice but to bench him for Ryan Griffin just to put the offense in better shape.
