that delay lasted more than 80 minutes. winston took a pounding when play resumed. he was sacked twice in the final 2.5 minutes. five sacks total for the broncos. 27-7 was the final score and the buck's defense wound up with four sacks total but the damage was done. now mid way through the second quarter of sunday's game, joe holly, the center for the bucks was tied for a team lead with two tackles. never a good sign for an offense. especially when you're facing a super bowl champion. ultimately the bucks first half turn overs dug them a hole they could not dig out of. how much blame does jameis deserve? paul ryan asks that very question. steven king couldn't have written a more night mayish start for jameis winston. his first pass intercepted by aqib talib. and the defending super bowl champs had a 7-0 lead. >> the first one was a bad
touchdown drive. winston hit aqib talib in the chest for another int. the broncos quickly turning that mistake into another 7 points. >> it's football. stuff is going to happen. as a defense we have to rise up and take the challenge. and hold them to three and get the phi ball back. our offense is great. they can be great if they want to be. i believe in them. i got their back 100%. >> the bucks are a quarter of the way through the winston's eight interceptions are as many as he threw in the final twelve games of last year. and being out dualed by paxton lynch in his nfl debut. >> he's not regressing. but we have to take care of the football. >> despite his struggles the cap pain went down with his ship. winston still under center and taking a beating at the end of a game lost well before another lengthy rain delay. >> i had plenty of time to
>> one thing about number three. he's not going to quit. no matter if we're down one point or 40 points. so you know, you love that. you know. and it's a disadvantage sometimes. because he's taking a lot of hits. >> he's a fighter. he's going to stick it in to the end with us. i wouldn't expect him or vonte or anybody to walk off the field. we're in quarters whether it's going good or bad. >> the game is never over until the clock hits triple zero. >> dan lucas is getting a one on one interview with coach cutter. we'll be right back with more news and weather on first at

preparing for the potential impacts of this storm as we narrow down exactly the track. as for us on the west coast of florida, expect to see strong winds as we head into the middle of the week. and also the dryer air. i don't think we'll see much in the way of impact still even with that closer track toward the east coast of florida. we're on the western side of the storm. for us this evening, still looking at heavy rain. pockets of heavy showers and storms tomorrow morning, clouds, a dry start to the day, a 40% chance of storms tuesday afternoon. rain chances trend down a bit for wednesday and thursday, a few lingering showers friday. then dry air kicks in. the humidity drops significantly into the weekend and next week. stacy? now it's time for send it to stacy where we feature your pictures on tv. today we're starting with a great shot from mark captioned well, i made it to the top, now how do i get down?
