After a standout performance against the Chargers in Week 13, Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has been nominated for the Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week. Winston threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to tight end Cam Brate in the fourth quarter, which proved to be the game-winner.
Winston finished the day completing 20 of 30 passes for 280 with a touchdown, successful two-point conversion and a interception. Nine different Buccaneers receivers caught passes in the game.
This is the third time a Buccaneer player has been up for the Castrol Clutch Performer of the Week award. Kicker Roberto Aguayo won it in Week 5 after the Buccaneers defeated the Panthers on Monday Night Football. Winston was also up for the award in Week 11 after his 331-yard performance in a road win against the Chiefs.
Also up for the award are Kansas City's Eric Berry, Arizona's Patrick Peterson, Oakland's Khalil Mack and New England's Tom Brady. The Clutch Performer of the Week award is determined by a fan vote, so Buccaneers fans are encouraged to vote for Winston early and often. To select him, click HERE.
