The Tampa Bay Buccaneers captured the NFC South crown for the third consecutive year after winning five of their final six games. Tampa Bay was 4-7 heading into December, but the offense heated up at the right time and the defense picked up the slack in Week 18 to secure a home playoff game.
Tampa Bay will host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night in the first round of the NFC postseason. Philadelphia went in a different direction to end the regular season, losing five of six to slip into a wild card slot.
Here are three anytime touchdown scorers to consider when the two teams meet in the playoffs for the second time in three seasons.

Eagles vs. Buccaneers TD bets
- Rachaad White anytime TD
- Chris Godwin anytime TD
- Dallas Goedert anytime TD
Rachaad White anytime TD
Philadelphia’s play-calling switch on defense from Sean Desai to Matt Patricia has not righted the ship and the Eagles are hampered by a sub-par, inexperienced linebacker group. Over the last two games, Philadelphia allowed a combined four touchdowns to Arizona starting running back James Conner and New York’s Saquon Barkley.
Conner ran for over 100 yards and Barkley had 97 scrimmage yards.
White has nine touchdowns on the season and is one of the best dual-threat running backs in the NFL, catching 64 of his 70 targets this season. He’ll get opportunities with the ball in his hands, especially through the air if quarterback Baker Mayfield is checking it down to avoid the Philadelphia pass rush.
Chris Godwin anytime TD
Philadelphia defensive back Darius Slay is expected to play, which means a one-on-one matchup with Mike Evans. While Slay is the best corner on the roster, there is not a lot of depth in the Eagles’ secondary.
There’s been an uptick in Godwin’s production over the last five games. He was targeted nine times per game in that span and had at least five catches in four of those contests.
It’s a great matchup for the Buccaneers’ wide receivers vs. a Philadelphia defense that ranks 31st against the pass.
Dallas Goedert anytime TD
A.J. Brown is questionable for Monday’s game due to the knee injury he suffered in Week 18 against the Giants. The Eagles were already missing DeVonta Smith to an ankle injury and Smith’s status is up in the air, too. That leaves Goedert as the top target in the Eagles’ offense, which is facing a Tampa Bay defense ranked 29th in the NFL against the pass.
Goedert becomes Philadelphia’s best receiving option, especially in the red zone. Tampa Bay’s defense allowed seven touchdowns to tight ends this season and Goedert could be next.
