Buccaneers at Washington: Gameday Thread for Wild Card Saturday

Bucs Nation’s community thread for the game.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Cincinnati Bengals Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Hey! It’s a playoff game and the Buccaneers are playing in it!

Tampa Bay is facing off against Washington as the Bucs will be trying to get their first playoff victory since 2002.

Tom Brady and the Buccaneers offense will be going up against a Washington pass rush that features Montez Sweat and Chase Young. Both will certainly present issues for Tampa Bay’s offensive line so it’ll be crucial for the offense to get Washington’s defense guessing and off balance early on in the game.

The Buccaneers defense will be without linebacker and defensive captain Devin White, but they will get cornerback Carlton Davis III back in the lineup. Washington is expected to start Taylor Heincke at quarterback so while it is not the veteran Alex Smith, defensive coordinator Todd Bowles should still make sure his defense sticks to the plan and not “overplay.”

Enjoy the game and each other’s company in the comments below.
