Winston has NFL's 2nd-longest INT-Free Streak

Jameis Winston hasn't thrown an interception since Week 4. Just one other NFL quarterback has gone longer without throwing a pick.

Jameis Winston completed yet another game without an interception on Sunday, the fourth consecutive game he's gone without turning the ball over. With the bye week, Winston hasn't thrown an interception since Week 4, something that just one other starting quarterback has done.

Winston continued to protect the football on Sunday against a New York Giants defense which led the NFL in interceptions heading into the game.

Kansas City's Alex Smith is the only quarterback besides Winston to go without throwing an interception since Week 4. Smith currently has the league's longest streak without an interception, spanning back to Week 3. Winston's streak of four games, or five weeks, is the second-longest.

San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick and Buffalo's Tyrod Taylor have also been interception-free since Week 4, but neither have started all of their team's games during that time. Kaepernick was benched this past weekend while Taylor missed time with an injury.

Winston has another streak running as well. He's thrown for at least 175 yards in each of his eight games this season.

Streaks aside, Winston is on pace for an excellent rookie campaign. At the rate he's going, he will finish the season with 3,372 passing yards, which would be a Buccaneer rookie record and the ninth-most in team history in a single season.
