Winston started 45 of 48 games over the past three seasons, going 18-27 while throwing for 11,636 yards, 69 touchdowns and 44 interceptions.

"Right when we left Tampa they were like, 'Joe, when we land, you've got a drug test, '" said Haden, who tweeted about the test this week. So we know what we're going to do.

Fitzpatrick became the first quarterback in National Football League history to record three consecutive 400-yard games after he finished with 411 yards last night.

"We've been up all day, we have an 8:30 game, leave Tampa right after the game, we land at 3 in the morning, only thing I'm thinking about is getting back to the house", Haden told ESPN. "We welcome Jameis back".

Throw in some anxious moments in the fourth quarter after the Buccaneers trimmed a 20-point deficit to three and the Steelers understand they're far from a finished product heading into a Sunday night visit by Baltimore (2-1). Considering previous sexual assault allegations against Winston, there are many who don't even want him on the Bucs roster - let alone starting ahead of an endearing figure like Fitzpatrick.

Tampa Bay made it close by keeping Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh's high-powered offense on the sideline for long stretches of the second half.

A 14-year journeyman who was forced into the starting lineup following Winston's three-game suspension, Fitzpatrick amazingly has a league-high 1,230 passing yards, putting him on pace for 6,560 yards this season - which would surpass Peyton Manning's all-time record by more than 1,000 yards.

In a statement from the White House, Kavanaugh said of Swetnick's allegations, "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone . Trump was also caught on tape in 2005 boasting of grabbing women by their genitals and kissing them without permission.

Fitzpatrick also started three games last season, going 2-1 while Winston was sidelined with a shoulder injury.

He was disappointing in the first half Monday, by his own account, but after throwing three interceptions and helping Pittsburgh take a 30-10 halftime lead, Fitzpatrick settled down and almost led the Bucs to a comeback. "We go into basically where TSA would check us out".

Winston is expected to meet with the media on Wednesday, when team begins preparation for the Bears.

"Wide receiver Adam Humphries said, "[They're] hungry to play and hungry to win games.

The Bucs got the ball back with just over three minutes left; however, the Steelers forced a punt and Roethlisberger ran out the clock.

"It's about the team's success".

"I wasn't sure where everything was going to be", Koetter said. "We're out here doing big things and we've got to continue doing that".
