The Logjam At 2 WinsNovember 17th, 2013
The streaking Buccaneers are now tied at two wins with the Falcons, Texans and Vikings. Those teams are sandwiched by the one-win Jags and the three-win Redskins. Eight teams have four victories, including December Bucs opponents, the Rams and Bills.
It’s the race for position in the 2014 draft!
Joe’s rooting for the Bucs to win out, go 8-8 and shock the world … but a top draft pick wouldn’t be a bad consolation prize.
The good news is the Texans and Jags still have two games against each other. The bad news is the Bucs’ brutal strength of schedule will work against them. That’s the top tiebreaker among teams that finish with the same record.
It’s a quarterback-heavy draft class. So even if the Bucs
pass on Johnny Football roll in 2014 with Mike Glennon, there could be some extraordinary trade-down options with a premium draft pick.
