Bucs’ Antonio Brown continues his scorching streak with Wildcard TD

It took a while, but Antonio Brown is paying off for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Despite a very quiet start to the regular season after a year mostly from the NFL, the Buccaneers kept playing it. Brown scored four touchdowns in the Buccaneers’ last three games and made a big appearance in the season finale that secured the number 5 and a date with the 7-9 Washington Football team in the wildcard round.

Brown maintained his hot phase and scored the first touchdown of the wildcard game in Washington on Saturday night. Brown lost the field and Tom Brady hit him for a 36 yard score to put Tampa Bay 9-0 in the first quarter.

Brown’s signing came with a high risk. Brown’s behavior led to early departures for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots in 2019. The Buccaneers ignored many off-field stories in an attempt to get Brown to watch a Super Bowl.

Brown didn’t score goals or top 69 yards in his first five Bucs games, but had 20 catches for 266 yards and four points in the last three regular season games.

It took Brown a while to look like the player we remember from the Steelers. But he’s playing well again and made an immediate impression in the Bucs postseason.
