Jameis Winston might actually be a wizard. That's the only explanation we have for how he managed to evade five sacks, a safety, and potential injury on the way to what may be one of the plays of the season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, in his second year in the league after being the first overall pick, led out his team against the Chicago Bears yesterday and feasted on a Bears side that didn't get going on either side of the football.

Winston's big game included a moment of sheer quality, as the emerging QB evaded half the Chicago defense before uncorking an incredible bomb to Mike Evans. Check it out below...

With 3rd-and-10 at his own 23, Winston took a shotgun snap and rolled to his right in an attempt to evade the oncoming Bears rush. Winston goes into what can only be described as a 'controlled panic' and manages to pull this out of the bag...

He was in his own end-zone at one point! Literally inches away from a safety and two points to the Bears, instead, Winston puts his educated feet to good use and steps up before firing an absolute rocket to Mike Evans that must travel at least 50 yards in the air.

On the very next play, Winston shook off any fatigue to throw another long bomb, this time to Freddie Martino for a touchdown. It's easy work in the life of Jameis Winston.

However, Winston's brand of playmaking in the pocket can easily turn into overplaying, as he tried to recreate the above play later in the game, only to be sacked for nearly a 10-yard loss. Live by the crazy play, die by the crazy play.
