PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jameis Winston tied a rookie record with five touchdown passes, Doug Martin ran for 235 yards, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Philadelphia Eagles 45-17 on Sunday.

Winston completed 19 of 29 passes for 246 yards and had four of his TD passes in the first half to four different receivers. He tied Matthew Stafford's rookie mark in the third quarter on an 8-yard toss to Cameron Brate, the fifth receiver to catch a TD.

Martin had 177 yards in the first half, including runs of 84 and 58 yards. He finished 2 yards short of tying Barry Sanders' record for most yards without a TD. Sanders had 237 for the Lions against Tampa in 1994.

The Buccaneers (5-5) have won two straight for the first time in two years. The Eagles (4-6) have lost two in a row.
