The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have something special in their second-year quarterback Jameis Winston.

The former Florida State Seminole, who the Buccaneers selected with the first overall pick back in 2015, may sometimes run hot and cold at times, but he was on top form against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

In fact, Winston was so good - and has been to start to his career - that he recently broke an NFL record at the quarterback position, and barely anyone noticed it as the Bucs routed the Bears by a score of 36-10.

With one of the two touchdowns he launched downfield against the Bears, Winston became the youngest quarterback in NFL history to throw 40 touchdown passes.

The 22-year-old from Alabama threw 22 touchdowns in his rookie year last season and is already at 19 so far in 2016 with 19 in nine games.

With potentially 18 more years left him in as a starting quarterback in the National Football League, we could see 'Famous Jameis' breaking a lot more league records as his burgeoning career progresses.

Bucs fans will hope they will be along for that full ride.
