How the @Buccaneers got to the #NFLPlayoffs ⬇️

Coming off their win in @SuperBowl LV, the @Buccaneers were slated as favorites to repeat after returning all 22 starters. (1/8)
In a thrilling #Kickoff2021 matchup, @TomBrady engineered a game-winning drive in the final minutes to defeat the Cowboys in Week 1.

After starting the season 2-1, Brady and the Bucs visited New England for the much anticipated return of the 🐐

Once again, Brady led a go-ahead drive with under two minutes remaining to secure the win against his former team.

That kicked off a four-game win streak, including a Thursday night victory against the Eagles, their upcoming playoff opponent.

The Bucs ran out the final 5:54 of the clock to finish off a 28-22 victory in Philly.

After back-to-back midseason losses, the @Buccaneers rattled off 7 wins in their final 8 games.

Tampa Bay finished the season with a 13-4 record, the most wins in franchise history, and clinched the #2 seed in the NFC. (via @Buccaneers)

.@TomBrady had one of the most prolific seasons of his career, totaling 5,316 passing yards, 43 TDs and led the Bucs to the #1 passing offense in the league.

Can @TomBrady and the @Buccaneers repeat?

Their quest to #SBLVI begins Sunday.

Injuries and a 3-5 start had the @49ers seeing deja vu at the start of the 2021 season.

But with a relentless pass rush and the emergence of explosive players on offense, they finished 7-2 and are back in the #NFLPlayoffs.

Here’s how they got there. #FTTB (THREAD 1/9) ImageImageImageImage
Their run started when the offense got back to what it does best: long, sustained drives.

An 18-play, 11-minute drive set the tone in a 31–10 victory over the Rams. (2/9)

Deebo Samuel’s threat as a pass catcher AND a runner put defenses on notice. He led the @49ers in rushing in Week 11.

Remember, this man’s a WR. More on @19problemz later. (3/9)

Bill Belichick’s 18th trip to the playoffs with the @Patriots may have been his most impressive work. Here’s how a team with a rookie QB, a punishing rushing attack, and a devastating defense found its way back to the postseason. 📈 Image
New England struggled out of the gate, starting just 1-3, although @MacJones_10’s first career TD pass was an early sign of optimism.

That optimism grew when Jones led a fourth quarter comeback in Week 5, capped off by Nick Folk’s game-winning field goal.

How the @Bengals got into the #NFLPlayoffs 🔽

Coming into the season, the @Bengals were the underdogs of the AFC North, having not made the playoffs since 2015. Image
In @JoeyB's first game back since tearing his ACL in Week 11, 2020, it was a couple of rookies who stepped up in their first career games.

@Real10jayy__ hauled in his first TD before @McPherson_Evan kicked the game winning FG with no time left.

Ja’Marr Chase continued his unbelievable start to his career with a pair of TD catches in Week 3 to lead the Bengals over the Steelers 24-10.

It was Cincinnati's first win in Pittsburgh since 2015.

.@Buccaneers WR @cyrilgraysonjr hadn’t caught a TD pass since high school before catching a TD from Tom Brady on Sunday.

He has one of the wildest paths to the NFL [THREAD].

He joined the LSU Track & Field team and became one of the most decorated sprinters in program history.

As Domestic Violence Awareness Month comes to a close, @MJAcostaTV led a powerful discussion with @KtRayJones, @JonDorenbos and @49TRich.

Here are three of the many important messages that came from that conversation. (THREAD)
“In order for me to move on with my life, I forgive you
because this cloud of hate, the burden that you put on my shoulders — when I take my next step this way, you aren't with me.”

NFL legend @JonDorenbos gives his perspective on forgiveness.
NFL legend @49TRich illustrates how asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, but one of strength.
