Bucs clinch playoff berth for first time in 13 years, playing for 5th seed

Tampa Bay has already clinched the playoffs and is the first time the organization has been able to accomplish this in 13 years. The last game being a 24-14 wildcard loss to the eventual Super Bowl Champion, New York Giants. Eli Manning completed 20 of 28 passes for 185 yards and two touchdowns, while Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs buried the Bucs on the ground as well for a combined hundred yards and a touchdown on thirty carries.

Once again, the Bucs "Road to the Playoffs" begins on the road against the NFC (L)East Champion, which could be the Washington Football Team if they can manage to beat the Philadelphia Eagles, otherwise it could come down to the winner of the Cowboys/Giants game.

Before the Bucs can focus on that, they must first dispose to the Atlanta Failcons

Ronald Jones could be first Bucs' running back to rush for 1,000 yards since 2015

Since Doug Martin rushed for 1,402 yards in 2015, no other back has been able to record a 1,000-yard rush season--

With the return of Ronald Jones after a two-game absence, it may be safe to bring up the topic of, Jones only needing to cross the century mark on the ground to eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the first time in the third-year back's career. Jones has already crossed the 1,000-yard mark in All-Purpose Yards, for the second consecutive season. With the run game for Tampa, up-and-down, Jones has still be able to provide quality substance in a crowded backfield that include veterans, Leonard Fournette and LeSean McCoy, along with 3rd round rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn.

With 100-yards left, do you feel Jones will put his name in the record books?

Mike Evans looks to make more history

*Article continued below photo*

Mike Evans looks to become the first wide receiver to begin their career with seven 1,000-yard seasons--

With just 40 yards remaining, Mike Evans has the chance to not only stamp his name in the Bucs' franchise record books, but make NFL history as well.

Evans is currently tied with Hall-of-Fame wideout Randy Moss, as the pair are the only two receivers to have six straight 1,000-yard seasons. If Evans can pick up those necessary yards, he will just be adding to his growing resume for Canton as the only wide receiver to have seven straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons.

Evans has already rewritten the history books this season becoming the youngest receiver to post 8,000 receiving yards along with tying (12) and breaking (13 and counting) his own record for "Receiving Touchdowns."With solid career numbers against the Falcons, it'd be difficult not to see Evans get the record.

Do you believe Evans will accomplish this feat?
