Winston completed 23 of 32 passes for 281 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Buccaneers to victory, 31-24. He finished the game with a passer rating of 122.6, which was the third-highest of any quarterback in the league.

Also nominated for the award were Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford and New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees.
