Bucs Finish In Three-Way Tie In NFC SouthDecember 30th, 2012
Joe’s not sure how the division tiebreakers will work, but on paper the Bucs finished the season tied with Carolina and New Orleans at 7-9 in the NFC South.
It’s definitely a messy tiebreaker. The Bucs beat Carolina twice. New Orleans beat the Bucs twice. And Carolina beat the Saints twice, including a 44-38 win in New Orleans today.
Each team had a 3-3 division record, but the Bucs checked in with a 4-8 conference record, worst among the three teams. So Joe suspects the Bucs officially will finish in fourth place, which surely would help their schedule next seaon.
Joe will update the official finish later tonight.
