357 days. 514,080 minutes.
That’s how long Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin went without scoring a touchdown. That came to an end on Sunday.
He caught a four-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter from future Hall of Famer Tom Brady. Godwin’s score was the game-winning score for the Buccaneers as they defeated the Seattle Seahawks 21-16 in the first-ever NFL game in Germany.
Godwin returned in Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys. However, he has not looked like himself as he recovered from his injury.
The 26-year-old suffered a torn ACL and sprained MCL in last season’s Week 15 9-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. Godwin was lost for the rest of the season.
The torn ACL has a typical nine-month recovery period. Godwin pushed that timeframe to return in the season-opener in Arlington, Texas.
After playing against the Cowboys, he had to miss the next two games with a hamstring injury.
The four-yard touchdown reception against the Seahawks was his first since November 22nd, 2021. He opened the scoring with a 14-yard touchdown reception in a 30-10 win over the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
With Godwin appearing to be back with Mike Evans, Julio Jones, and Scotty Miller healthy, the Buccaneers are going to be tough to deal with in the second half of the season. Tampa Bay will return to action in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns on November 27th.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved.
