LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21 Detroit Lions 24

Six turnovers and four lost fumbles doomed the Buccaneers

Winston, who threw two interceptions and lost a fumble, led a 75-yard drive that he finished with a 2-yard scoring pass to O.J. Howard and then used a 40-yard pass interference call against Detroit cornerback DJ Hayden to set a 2-yard TD throw to seldom-used offensive lineman Leonard Wester to make it 21-21 with eight minutes remaining.

Winston completed 26 of 38 passes for 285 yards. His fumble led to Riddick's second TD run. Buccaneers finished with five turnovers, and Winston being sacked three times.

The loss ensures the Buccaneers, who haven't made the playoffs since 2007, will finish with a losing record. The team entered this season with heightened expectations after going 9-7 in their first year under coach Dirk Koetter, who now finds himself deflecting questions about whether his relationship with Winston - the top pick in the 2015 draft - is deteriorating.
