“The Bucs Have The Tiebreaker”November 20th, 2012
NFL Network already is going deep into potential NFL playoff scenarios (video here), and their latest analysis has the Bucs tying the Seahawks at 10-6 for the final NFC Wild Card spot.
And per NFL Network “researchers,” the call is that “the Bucs have the tiebreaker” against Seattle.
So there you have it, the Bucs are playoff bound. Now all they have to do is find four more wins among games on the road in New Orleans, Denver and Atlanta, plus from home games against Atlanta, St. Louis and Philly.
Joe’s going to put a big fat “maybe” out there. A win Sunday against Atlanta, however, and the Bucs’ playoff drive goes from a dream into something that should happen.
In the video linked above, former Pro Bowl defensive lineman Willie McGinest is convinced the Bucs will be able to run the ball against Atlanta and win Sunday, as well as in Atlanta in Week 17. He claims the Falcons, with a playoff bye locked up, will be resting starters for that final game with the Bucs.
