2. Jameis Winston finally cracks 200 passing yards in a game this season
Jameis Winston’s honeymoon ended last week in Carolina after a rather dreadful performance against the Panthers’ vaunted defense. While not perfect, Winston did bounce back in the Saints’ road game against the Patriots.
Winston completed 13-of-21 pass attempts for 128 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the 28-13 win. With this, Winston has still yet to throw for over 200 yards in a single game this season, which is pretty surprising. But, Winston does have a favorable matchup against New York’s pass defense.
Last season, the Giants’ defense helped keep them in the NFC East title hunt. This year, the defense is undisciplined and have gotten picked apart by opposing quarterbacks such as Teddy Bridgewater, Taylor Heinicke and Matt Ryan. Through the first three games, the Giants have allowed an average of 267.3 passing yards per game, which is the 12th-most in the NFL, per ESPN.
This will be the week that Winston will throw for over 200 yards. You can bank on it.
