The Bucs certainly looked the part of defending Super Bowl champions in a 31-15 victory over the Eagles in an NFC wild-card game Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Tom Brady passed for 271 yards and two touchdowns, and Tampa Bay limited Philadelphia’s revamped rushing attack to 95 yards, much of which came in the fourth quarter.

The Bucs will stay at home for next weekend’s divisional round, either to play the Cowboys or (if Dallas loses to San Francisco), the winner of Monday’s game between the Rams and Cardinals.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the win:
