The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not going to fire coach Dirk Koetter.

"Regardless of what our record says, 'What do you mean, I ain't got nothing to play for?"

In Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons, Winston completed 27 of 35 passes (77.1 percent) for 299 yards and three touchdowns for a 130.5 passer rating in a 24-21 loss. The rushing game, often the backbone of this Panthers team, was held to 115 total yards, well below the season average.

The Bucs have invested heavily in surrounding Winston with a supporting cast on offense at the expense of their defense. The Bucs had almost 400 yards of offense and completed 6-of-11 third-down conversions.

Tampa Bay finished the 2016 season 9-7, coming up just a little short of a spot in the playoffs.

Dana White defends Conor McGregor, UFC lightweight division from 'haters'
However, White shot down any notion that the UFC should have stripped McGregor of the lightweight title by now. One person you won't have to worry about seeing the Irishman fight, according to White, is Georges St-Pierre.

Tight end Cameron Brate missed Wednesday's practice with a hip/knee injury, wide receiver Chris Godwin was also sidelined with an ankle injury and linebacker Devante Bond missed practice with an ankle injury as well. All of that was topped off by a lucky bounce, as Newton almost fumbled on the touchdown run. Stafford has been sacked a career-high 45 times this year. What is also worth note is that role players found a way to make their contributions known as Damiere Byrd ran back a kickoff return for a touchdown.

Continue to see where the Panthers rank as the regular season draws to a close this week. Toss in a couple losing seasons and another handful just over the.500 mark and Gruden walked out of Tampa with a 57-55 overall record with the organization.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Playoff-bound Saints will clinch NFC South championship with victory.

Among the reasons for sticking with Koetter includes the fact that Winston suffered a shoulder injury that forced him to miss three games and saw him struggle to play three others while hurt.
