There won’t be a Super Bowl celebration on the Hillsborough River this year, as the Bucs dropped their NFC division-round playoff game to the Rams, 30-27 Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Instead, the Rams will return to Los Angeles to face the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game next weekend at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.

The Bucs rallied from a 24-point, second-half deficit to tie the game on Leonard Fournette’s 9-yard run with 42 seconds left. But the Rams drove down the field in the time that remained, winning on former Buc Matt Gay’s 30-yard field goal as time expired.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the Bucs’ loss:
