RB Doug Martin: He gained a team-high 81 yards and a touchdown on just 11 carries. Martin has 1,214 yards, 330 shy of tying James Wilder's franchise record for a season, set in 1984.
LB Lavonte David: He had 13 tackles, two pass breakups and one tackle for loss. David was all over the field and kept Tampa Bay in the game.
QB Jameis Winston: The rookie completed 18 of 32 passes for 182 yards and one touchdown but missed Charles Sims, who had a step on a New Orleans linebacker on a deep pass late in the fourth quarter. If Winston completes that pass, Sims would likely score a touchdown and the game would be an extra-point away from being tied.
K Connor Barth: His 47-yard field goal attempt in the third quarter sailed left. Barth is now 19-of-23 on the season and has missed field goals in two of the past three games.
WR Vincent Jackson: He caught one pass for 5 yards before leaving the game with an injured knee. The injury is likely to keep him out of Thursday's game at St. Louis because of the short turnaround.
