Of course upsets do happen. However, if the Bucs’ only remaining loss is to Buffalo, the bad news is that at 15-2, one of our losses would have to be against the Colts (our only remaining AFC game) to have any chance of winning the tie-breaker against Tampa Bay. Otherwise, our presumed two losses would both be in the NFC, dooming us in the conference-games tie-breaker.Bucs definitely have the easiest schedule left. They essentially only have one remaining game they could lose (Bills).
And so far their schedule has been a cake walk. They’ve played two quality opponents and split them (Dallas & Rams)
15-2 is very realistic for them.
So to lock up the #1 seed I think the Cards are legitimately going to have to go at least 15-2 and hope we have tiebreakers over Tampa.
