Former Penn State WR Chris Godwin Plays Hero For Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie and former Penn State star Chris Godwin scored his first NFL touchdown on Sunday, doing so in perhaps the most exciting way possible.

With the Bucs down by one with 15 seconds remaining against the New Orleans Saints, quarterback Jameis Winston found Godwin running down the right sideline for an outstanding 39-yard touchdown to take the lead.

Tampa Bay went on to defeat the Saints 34-27 at home to round out the regular season 5-11. Godwin’s been relegated to a backup role behind stud receivers Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson this season. Sunday also marked his first 100-yard game as a professional.

He soared up draft boards after a magnificent performance against USC in last year’s Rose Bowl, finishing with 187 yards on nine receptions to go with two touchdowns. Godwin was then chosen in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft as the 11th receiver off the board. Tampa Bay heads offseason with much to look forward to in its young playmaker.
