The Bucs play Philadelphia on Sunday, and it’s a rematch of the first playoff game in that franchise’s history. In December, 1979, Tampa Bay beat Philadelphia 24-17. Doug Williams started for the Bucs on that day, which was unusual – few teams had black quarterbacks at that time. Prior to Williams, who was the only African American quarterback who had started a playoff game?
James Harris. In 1974, Harris started when the Rams beat Washington 19-10 in a divisional playoff game. He also started the following week, when the Rams lost 14-10 at Minnesota in the NFC Championship game.
