Buccaneers claim its eighth division title as they clinch playoffs following win vs Panthers

Week 17 has delivered several deciding games at the start of the new year. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also got such a favorable result last night against the Carolina Panthers that it delivered a New Year’s present to the fans.

The Buccaneers played the most crucial game of the season last night at Raymond James Stadium. Despite a shaky start, they managed to win by a score of 30-24 over the visiting team, thanks to Brady and co. Tom Brady, the legendary quarterback, had fantastic chemistry with the receiver Mike Evans; they scored three touchdowns each, securing their cherished eighth title victory.

How did the Bucs achieve their divisional title?

The Bucs started the match with a 7-8 league record, holding the top spot in the NFC South against the 3rd-seeded Panthers (6-9). With this win, the Panthers were eliminated from the title fight, and Brady’s Tampa Bay clinched the divisional title back-to-back for the first time in their history.

There is still one game left in the season for both the Bucs and their closest rival, the New Orleans Saints (7-9). Even if the Saints were to win next week and the Bucs were to lose, the Saints still wouldn’t be crowned divisional champions because the Bucs and Saints have a head-to-head record that favors the Bucs.

What is the playoff position of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the postseason?

After ensuring the title with one game in hand, the Buccaneers secured their playoff place as the fourth seed, which will allow them to play at home. This is the third consecutive playoff for Brady’s team. The last time they won the Super Bowl was in 2020 at the same venue.

The GOAT, Tom Brady, was phenomenal as always in the title-deciding game last night. He completed three touchdown passes for 432 yards on 34 of 45 attempts. He also contributed to the winning TD in the last quarter. The 45-year-old veteran had seven rings but only one with Tampa Bay. He surely wants to add another one to his majestic, decorated career before retiring.
