Streeter Lecka

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are currently tied for the second wild card spot in the NFC. Who are they fighting with for those playoff spots?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fought back into playoff contention, but they don't have much room at all for mistakes. Entering Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, the Buccaneers find themselves in a three-way tie for the second NFC wild card spot at 6-4.

The Chicago Bears currently have the first wild card spot at 7-3. Along with the Buccaneers, the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks are also tied for the second wild card, but the New Orleans Saints and the Dallas Cowboys are one game back of that bunch at 5-5.

The Buccaneers have games remaining against the Denver Broncos, Saints and their regular season finale against the Falcons on Dec. 30. This Sunday's game against the Falcons will be at Raymond James Stadium with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m. The game will be broadcast on Fox and the radio broadcast will be on WFUS 103.5 FM and WDAE 620 AM.
