Bucs are back in the playoffs after thrashing the Lions 47-7

Tampa Bay- The Bucs clinch a spot in the playoffs after dismantling the Lions 47-7.

After coming back from stuffing their bellies with Christmas food, the Buccaneers knew that they needed to pull out a victory over the Lions to secure a playoff birth for themselves.

On the Bucs opening drive, it only took six plays for Tom Brady to connect with Rob Gronkowski for a 33-yard touchdown pass to strike first on the scoreboard. Tampa missed the extra point, which made it a 6-0 to start the game.

Brady was letting the ball go down the field in the quarter. He threw a 47-yard bomb to Chris Goodwin to get Tampa Bay in the redzone and hit Mike Evans for a 27-yard touchdown to strike to extend their lead, 13-0. With the touchdown pass, Brady and Evans broke records. Evans tied his single-season touchdown record with 12 t'ds, while Brady broke the Bucs single-season pass record with 34 touchdown passes.

At the start of the second quarter, Leonard Fournette cruised in the endzone, for a three-yard touchdown run to expand the lead, 20-0. Tampa scored another touchdown mid-way in the quarter to take a commanding 27-0 lead over Detroit. At the end of the half, Tampa shut-out the lions 34-0.

In the second half, the Bucs sat Brady and put in Blaine Gabbert. On Gabbert's first play after the Bucs recovered a fumble, he threw a touchdown pass to Gronk to put the game out of reach, 40-0. After the score, the game was pretty much finished. The final score was 47-7.
