Godwin has bad night with 4 drops, gets ripped online

Penn State product Chris Godwin has enjoyed an excellent NFL career, but he had a night to forget in the playoffs Saturday for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Washington Football Team.

This is most of what you need to know:

But what makes the stats in that tweet and Godwin’s poor game so ironic is that this news had just come out prior to all of his drops.

Godwin actually started off well on the night, catching this touchdown pass from Tom Brady.

But things got worse from there, as Godwin just couldn’t stop dropping passes. And Twitter let him have it.

OK, you get the idea. It was a rough night for Godwin, who has always been an extremely reliable wide receiver. He had a strong regular season, with 65 catches for 840 yards and seven TDs.

Godwin did have five catches for 79 yards and a touchdown Saturday, and the Buccaneers held on to beat Washington, 31-23.

Godwin now will get a chance at some redemption in the second round of the playoffs next week.
