Tampa Bay and Washington Highlight A Historic Weekend Of Football

This weekend not only represents the beginning of the NFL postseason, but also perhaps the living embodiment of every football fans collective dreams coming true. For the first time ever, lovers of the great game will have the opportunity to watch a grand total of six postseason games, presented via tripleheaders on both Saturday and Sunday. Thank you brand new playoff format for making dreams come true! Well, more specifically, thank you Roger Goodell!

With the Wild Card matchups fast approaching, fresh football odds for this weekend's contests are ready to roll, particularly for those who want to make their NFL watching just a little bit more interesting.

Perhaps the most fascinating game of the six will take place on Saturday night, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head north to battle the Washington Football Team, at FedExField in Landover, Maryland.

The 11-5 Bucs are of course led by the greatest QB in NFL history, the incomparable Tom Brady. While the six-time Super Bowl champion and nine-time conference champ taking the field during the postseason is seemingly as expected as the sun rising in the east, the sight of Brady in a Tampa Bay uniform still makes one rub their eyes a bit. In the living legend’s first season away from New England, the 43-year-old posted 40 TD passes and 12 INT’s, amid capping the regular season with four straight victories.

Brady and the Bucs will matchup against a very mediocre Washington team, who won the NFC East despite finishing with only a 7-9 record. WFT is also chockfull of storylines including QB Alex Smith’s miraculous return from one of the most devastating leg injuries in history (listed questionable for this game with a calf injury).

In addition, there is first year head coach Ron Rivera, who successfully battled cancer, earlier this season.

And likely NFL defensive rookie of the year Chase Young, who himself made some news by calling out the aforementioned Brady, in the wake of his team’s season-ending win over the Eagles.

Talk about this game having intangibles!

Grab a drink, pop some popcorn and find a comfortable seat. There is a whole lot of football to take in this weekend.
