For the first-time in his career, Tom Brady is playing on Wild Card Weekend.
The Bucs (11-5) won their final four regular season games and comes into this matchup as the heavy favorite. At 43 years old, Brady threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns in his first year with Tampa. Receiver Mike Evans is a game-time decision, but Brady will still have wideouts Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown on the field.
Former San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback Alex Smith helped a 7-9 Washington team win the NFC East, but he is inactive with a calf injury. Taylor Neinicke will make his first postseason start.
Featuring four first-round picks, the defensive line is WFT’s biggest strength. Led by standout rookie Chase Young, Washington’s defense ranked second in the NFL in total yards against.
