  Buccaneers | Antonio Brown should be ready    Tue Jan 26, 12:29 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (knee) is expected to be ready to play in Super Bowl LV, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Brown had to miss the NFC Championship Game and now with more time to get healthy we should see him in the big game. That means Scotty Miller or Tyler Johnson might get fewer snaps in the Super Bowl.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay headed for Super Bowl LV    Sun Jan 24, 06:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 20-of-36 passes for 280 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 24. It will be his 10th Super Bowl appearance, and the Bucs are the first team to play the game in their home stadium. RB Leonard Fournette ran 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown while adding five receptions for 19 yards, RB Ronald Jones rushed 10 times for 16 yards, WR Chris Godwin racked up five receptions for a team-best 110 yards on nine targets and WR Mike Evans added three receptions for 51 yards and a score on eight targets. WR Scott Miller also cashed in his three targets for two catches, 36 yards and a touchdown, while TE Rob Gronkowski was limited to one catch for 29 yards on his lone target. TE Cameron Brate picked up three grabs for 19 yards and a score, while WR Tyler Johnson rounded things out with one catch for 16 yards. LB Devin White led the way defensively with a staggering game-high 15 total tackles, including nine of the solo variety.

Footballguys view: Brady wasn't the reason the Bucs won, but he did have two good long passes to offset his three interceptions, which his defense did a great job of minimizing in the story of the outcome of the game. Leonard Fournette goes to the Super Bowl with Tom Brady after his 2017 Jaguars team was ousted by Brady. Godwin had great hands deep on his key play early, while Evans hands were more suspect, although the interception off of his hands in the red zone was more on Brady than him. Tampa Bay will be the first team to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Jan. 22, and was removed from the injury report for the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Jones is going to get out there like he did in the Divisional Round but there's no word on whether or not he's going to start or if Leonard Fournette is going to get that nod. They'll both work in a RBBC against the Packers on Sunday.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans ready for NFCCG    Fri Jan 22, 05:21 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (knee) was limited in practice all week but no longer appears on the injury report for the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Evans has a tough time shaking free against Saints CB Marshon Lattimore. He'll have a better time this week against the Packers, but the last time these two teams played (Week 6 2020) Evans only had one catch for 10 yards. Let's see if he can do more with a trip to the Super Bowl...in Tampa...on the line.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 21.

  Buccaneers | Antonio Brown a likely GTD for NFC title game    Thu Jan 21, 05:53 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (knee) did not practice for a second consecutive day Thursday, Jan. 21, and is expected to be a game-time decision for the NFC Championship game versus the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: This was expected with Brown's knee injury and him missing all of practice this week. There's always Friday, but we'd bet he misses that day too. Brown is a seasoned veteran who could still play a role on Sunday even if he doesn't practice at all during the week.
