Jameis Winston is starting to make a case that not only does he deserve to start in the NFL, he deserved to be taken No. 1 overall by the Buccaneers in last year’s NFL Draft.

Winston, whose Bucs have started off a bit slow, has showed improvement through six games, to the tune of nine touchdown passes, seven interceptions an 1,471 passing yards to the tune of an 85.7 quarterback rating. Matt Ryan and the Falcons on the other hand, have begun to taper off after a roaring 5-0 start.
