A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:

NFL

• The Redskins defeated the Buccaneers 17-10 in a wild-card playoff game Saturday despite only 120 yards of total offense. That set a record for the fewest yards by the winning side in a postseason game. The previous lowest was 134 by the Ravens in a 24-10 victory over the Titans on Jan. 7, 2001.

• Chris Simms threw two interceptions Saturday, both of which came after the pass was tipped at the line of scrimmage. During the regular season Simms had 4.79 percent of his pass attempts blocked or deflected at the line, the second highest percentage in the NFL, ever so slightly behind Kurt Warner (4.80 percent).

The Redskins' defense blocked or deflected 4.1 percent of opponents' pass attempts; only the Bears had a higher percentage this season (4.9 percent).
