Winston has four rushing touchdowns on the season, the most of any Buccaneer. He also had some success in the air, completing 22 of 39 passes for 264 yards.

2. WR Mike Evans
Evans was, by far, the Bucs' leading receiver on Sunday. He hauled in eight passes for 126 yards, 86 yards more than any other Buccaneer. It was the fourth time that Evans has gone over 100 yards this season and the second game in a row that he's accomplished the feat. Evans has is now No. 6 on the Bucs' all-time list for 100-yard receiving games, picking up his seventh against the Cowboys.


  1. LB Lavonte David**
    David put together one of his best performances of the season, recording a team-high 12 tackles to go with a sack, a tackle for a loss and a pass defensed. David had twice as many tackles as Jude Adjei-Barimah, who finished second on the team with six. David has 81 tackles this season, the most of any Buccaneer defender.

4. S Bradley  McDougald
The Buccaneers forced just one turnover on Sunday, but it came at a critical time. With the clock winding down and the Cowboys down by four, Matt Cassel launched a pass into the Bucs' end zone, just to have McDougald intercept it. The Bucs' offense would take a knee on the following play and the game would be over. McDougald also recorded five tackles.

5. CB Sterling Moore
Sunday was Moore's second consecutive start and he continued to perform at a high level. He was tasked with covering Dez Bryant for most of the game, and held the Cowboys' standout wide receiver to just five catches for 45 yards. "When his number's been called he's really stepped up to the plate," Head Coach Lovie Smith said after the game." Moore also recorded four tackles.
