Florida State’s Jameis Winston not satisfied with offensive performance against N.C. State


Miami Herald Writer

Florida State’s offense took just 13 minutes to score 35 points last Saturday.

By the time Jameis Winston’s day was done — early in the third quarter — he had thrown for 292 yards and three touchdowns and the Seminoles were up 42-0.

“We ended kind of flat and that was my fault,” Winston said. “Obviously, because I’ve got to keep the intensity going and the first quarter was so fast, first quarter was so exciting that me, as a player, I’ve got to get to the point that’s like ‘guys, don’t let their mistakes make us … play down to their level — let’s play Florida State football and keep things going.’ ”

“The N.C. State [game] was not my best game individually, that was not our offense’s best game even though we scored 35 points in the first quarter. That was all defense, they got us the ball fast, when you think about what happened in the second quarter and what happened in the third quarter, we have to get better every single day.”

• Freshman wide receiver Isaiah Jones sustained a stress fracture in his foot, which will require surgery. He is expected to miss several weeks.
