Winston, the second-year quarterback, was sharp as he threw for 281 yards and four touchdowns . The Falcons were unable to stop Winston's accurate scoring passes to wide receiver Mike Evans and tight ends Brandon Myers and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. They were similarly flustered by running back Charles Sims' cuts and spin on his 23-yard scoring pass from Winston.
ATLANTA (AP) — Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers showed they can be a team on the rise in the NFC South.
"We had some opportunities but we just didn't make the plays and that's disappointing," said Ryan who completed 27 of 39 passes for 334 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
It was a frustrating start for the Falcons, who were 1-5 against NFC South opponents in 2015, including 0-2 against Winston and the Buccaneers.
"Let's do it 15 more times. This year,Wholesale Shoes For Sale Online

The Buccaneers, who improved from two to six wins last season, opened their season with a crucial road win in the division by beating the Falcons 31-24 on Sunday.
"You can't say enough about Julio Jones and Matt Ryan, they're great players,Cheap Shoes Website

Tampa Bay held Atlanta to only 52 yards rushing, including 20 yards on 11 carries by Devonta Freeman.
