Gophers tandem Antoine Winfield Jr., Tyler Johnson thrive in big win for Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay got big performances from a pair of former Minnesota stars in its win over Las Vegas on Sunday.
Both Antoine Winfield Jr. and Tyler Johnson made big plays for the Bucs.
For Winfield Jr., it was his first career interception:

That play came in a big moment of the game when the Raiders still had an opportunity to come back. The Bucs responded to this play with a quick touchdown strike to seal the game.
Then, a few minutes later, Tampa scored again with this touchdown throw to Johnson:

This was Johnson’s second touchdown catch of the season. He entered the game with five catches for 68 yards and a score on the year. A 2020 5th round draft pick, Johnson caught both of his targets vs. the Raiders for a total of four yards.
Tampa is now 5-2 on the season and have a commanding lead in the NFC South. Next week, the Buccaneers play the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
