Godwin helps snap a Near Two-Decade Drought

Chris Godwin made his playoff debut on Saturday, and he did not disappoint. The fourth-year pro hauled in a nice ball from Tom Brady to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their first playoff win since 2003.

Nick Scott Steps Up

Nick Scott has been a special teams ace since his days in Beaver Stadium, but it was an impressive pass breakup that may go down as the best play of his pro career. The former Penn State captain swatted a Russell Wilson pass away while avoiding making contact and getting hit with a pass interference penalty. It was clear Wilson was going to test the reserve safety on the play, so credit to Scott for making sure he made a clean play on the ball.
