Buccaneers receiver Antonio Brown exited Sunday’s playoff game with an injury. At last word, Brown was getting an MRI on his knee.
In his absence, a couple of other receivers stepped up: Scotty Miller, who saw his playing time plummet after Brown joined the team, and rookie Tyler Johnson (pictured). Both players had key catches in the fourth-quarter drive that resulted in the Buccaneers taking a 23-20 lead. Johnson made an athletic, lunging catch of a low-and-outside pass on third and 11, securing a first down. Three plays later, Miller caught a 29-yard pass on third and five.
