Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Atlanta Falcons

Dirk Koetter got a game ball after his debut as an NFL head coach.

That might be far-fetched, but at least the Bucs can boast of a winning record for the first time since the 2012 season, when they started 6-4.

Winston presented his new coach with the game ball.

“It was very important that we made him feel the moment was special, not only for him but for us,” the quarterback said.
