Millennial mark for Godwin
With a dozen shopping days remaining in the holiday season, and four games remaining in the regular season, Chris Godwin put a bow atop the second 1,000-yard campaign of his career.

The fifth-year receiver's monstrous first half (seven catches, 91 yards) pushed him past the milestone, making him the sixth Bucs player to post multiple 1,000-yard receiving seasons. The others: Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson, Kevin House, Keyshawn Johnson and Joey Galloway.

Godwin finished with a team-high 10 catches for 105 yards. In his last two games, he has totaled 25 receptions (on 32 targets) for 248 yards.

Sherman sighting
Playing his first game in nearly two months, Richard Sherman wasn't content to make a cameo. He had to make a little history. Lining up primarily as an extra safety in nickel and dime packages, the 33-year-old veteran intercepted Allen with a minute remaining in the first half. The pick was the 37th of his all-pro career, most of any active NFL player.

Injury update
Reserve tailback Giovani Bernard exited with assistance from trainers with a hip injury late in the first half and didn't return. Neither did cornerback Jamel Dean (illness), also absent the entire second half. Arians couldn't provide specifics on Dean. "He just got foggy," he said.
