Row the Boat! Rookie Antoine Winfield Jr. comes up with huge INT for Tampa Bay in Super Bowl LV
Antoine Winfield Jr. may have just capped his incredible rookie season with a game-sealing play in Super Bowl LV.
In the 3rd quarter of the Super Bowl, Winfield made a heck of a play, coming up with a clutch interception on Patrick Mahomes to end Kansas City’s drive and give Tampa Bay great field position. It was his second interception of the season for the Buccaneers and his first pick of the postseason.
Below is the clip of Winfield coming up big for the Bucs:

Winfield wasted no time making a name for himself in Tampa. After being named the B1G Defensive Back of the Year in 2019 following a stellar season at Minnesota, he carved out a starting role immediately as a rookie with the Buccaneers.
In his rookie season with Tampa Bay, Winfield totaled 64 tackles, 6 passes defended, 2 forced fumbles and an interception in the regular season. He did not play in the Buccaneers’ NFC Championship Game victory over the Green Bay Packers, but he’s made up for it in a big way in Super Bowl LV.
