Thanks to a huge flag, Jameis Winston could joke about the late fumble that was overturned due to a defensive penalty.

What's that old saying? "Great quarterbacks have short memories?" Well, it's safe to say that Winston has a very, very short memory after his near-disastrous fumble in the final minute against the Dallas Cowboys.

When Winston fumbled on the goal line and the Cowboys recovered, it seemed that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had lost another close one. Fortunately, there was a flag for defensive holding, which gave Winston and his team another chance.

Winston capitalized on the next play with a naked bootleg to the right to give his team the lead, and eventually the win. So, what did Winston say about that final play, as well as the fumble before it? Rana L. Cash from Sporting News has the quote.

"The touchdown was magical," Winston told Sporting News. "Great fake, great call, found a way in the end zone. The play before that, I have no recollection of."

You have to love the personality of Winston, but his game has been just as impressive as of late. If he can keep playing like this, the Buccaneers are going to have a very bright future.
