Is this Jameis Winston's Heisman moment?
If the redshirt freshman Florida State quarterback keeps his impressive early season performance up for the entire season, what he did at the end of the first half Saturday at Boston College will be a popular highlight for his candidacy.

With the game tied at 17, Winston escaped the grasp of two Boston College defenders and unleashed a bomb to Kenny Shaw right before he was hit by a third. The pass was perfect, and Shaw jumped up over his defender and made the catch while being tackled into the end zone. It was halftime, and Florida State was suddenly up by seven.
FSU barely got the snap off in time to run the play in the first place. The clock had stopped at three seconds after the Seminoles' previous play and there was a single second left when Winston got the snap.

Before last week's Florida State game, t-shirts were being sold with Winston's face on a depiction of Jesus. Maybe Jameis Heisman shirts are up next.
