Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston completely lost his cool following Sunday’s 22-19 Week 16 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Winston fumbled the ball in the closing moments of the game, but it was recovered by Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers. Winston believed he had recovered the ball, and absolutely lost his mine when it was ruled in favor of Carolina.
First, Winston went after the referees and began crying on the sidelines.

Carolina clinched a playoff berth with the victory.
Jameis, meanwhile, could do nothing other than watch someone else eat his “W.”
