Playoff Dreams Up In SmokeDecember 9th, 2012
Put away your calculators and your hopes. The Bucs’ shot at the playoffs is gone.
Dallas, Washington and Minnesota all rose to the occasion today and won to move their records to 7-6, while the Bucs fell to 6-7. Dallas and Washington both have the key head-to-head tiebreaker edge on the Bucs and better conference records, also a potential critical tiebreaker. And they play each other later this season.
The Rams at 6-6-1 even leapfrogged the Bucs, and at the time of this post, Seattle is clobbering Arizona.
The Bucs need an absolute miracle to get in to the playoffs with a 9-7 record. But that would mean running the table in New Orleans, home for St. Louis and at Atlanta — and that would be a bigger miracle at this point.
