The Buccaneers are entering the biggest game in over a decade, and these three players will play a large role in a potential win.

Today is the day. The Buccaneers return to the playoffs for the first time since 2007, and the excitement in the Tampa Bay area is impossible to ignore. After years of mediocrity and below, the Bucs have finally made the necessary moves to advance past the regular season.

This season hasn’t been perfect by any means, but a record of 11-5 is hard to take fault in. The Buccaneers have a legitimate chance to prove themselves today in a matchup against a battered Washington Football team. This game won’t be a walk in the park, and these players have the opportunity to put the team on their shoulders when it matters most.

Player #1

Tom Brady

Surprise! The starting quarterback and only new significant addition for the Buccaneers that was the driving force behind making the playoffs is also the most crucial player in their first playoff game.

Tom Brady has been the difference-maker for the Bucs this year. The roster is almost the exact same as the one in 2019, yet the results have been dramatically different because of Brady.

Brady has matched Jameis Winston‘s offensive success and reduced the turnovers by more than half, and through that, the rest of the roster has improved as well. The new quarterback was clearly the missing piece for taking this roster to the next level, and a good game from Brady today should put the game out of reach for Washington.
