Things did not go great for the Bucs however as Winston was forced to limp off the field after taking a big hit against the Bengals last night, while star wide receiver Mike Evans also left the game with a hamstring injury.

It seems like the two will be okay, with Evans providing a small worry that he could be out, but for nothing more than a week or two.

Staying in the NFL, the Green Bay Packers got the news they were dreading last night. After suffering what looked like nothing more than a twisted knee, Jordy Nelson has been ruled out of the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL. This injury will put a big dent in the Packers Super Bowl hopes.

Over to the NBA now, where the Charlotte Hornets have just spent a lot of money. The Hornets have signed Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to a four-year contract extension worth $52million dollars. The extension will keep the small forward in Charlotte until 2020.

And finally to baseball, where the New York Mets set a franchise record last night. The Mets smashed 8 home runs against the Phillies, with David Wright nailing one out of the park in his first at-bat since coming off the disabled list.
