THE TEAM NEWS

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers produced another impressive offensive display to come into the play-offs in fine form and they will believe they have the weapons to pose some real problems in the post-season.
  • With QB Tom Brady under center, the Buccaneers posted 44 points in the big win over Atlanta Falcons which was their fourth consecutive victory and it will take a good team to tame Tampa.
  • They have scored at least 24 points in each of their last seven games and it is obvious their strengths lie on the offensive side of the ball but they do have a doubt over one of their key weapons in WR Mike Evans who could be a game-time decision after suffering a knee injury last week.

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM

  • Washington Football Team secured the final spot in the play-offs in controversial fashion as they did enough to see off NFC East rivals Philadelphia Eagles to claim the divisional title.
  • After losing their last two matches, Washington needed a win over the Eagles to book their spot at the expense of New York Giants but they were behind in the third quarter when the Eagles put their backup QB into the game which changed the course of the contest.
  • The Football Team will need to produce a much better display than they have managed in their last few outings and it could be their defensive efforts which prove to be decisive with rookie DE Chase Young likely to be a key man for them having produced 7.5 sacks in his debut season.

THE PREDICTION

Washington Football Team will hope their time in the play-offs is not as short-lived as expected but they have it all to do after finishing with a losing record during the regular season. They finished on 7-9 which was enough to win the NFC East title but this will be a huge challenge for them as they take on free-scoring Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 11-5 Bucs were the second-highest scorers in the NFC having scored 492 points which was 157 more than the Football Team managed and with a stark difference in offensive ability, it is the road team that should progress here and they can win by at least four points.
