The Buccaneers not only clinched a playoff berth, but with this week’s win, they secured the No. 5 seed to play the NFC East Divisional Champs Washington Football Team. The Bucs came out and took care of business beating the Falcons 44-27, securing the best game option heading into Wild Card weekend.

The Good

  1. With many critical components of the defense out, other players step up and make plays

  4. NOTABLE: Mike Evans breaks the NFL record!

  3. Mike Evans gets injured, but it’s not as bad as many are making it out to be
