2012 NFL schedule: Bucs try to keep pace against Eagles

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers need a win over the Eagles to keep up in the NFC playoff race.


With the NFL season winding down, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers need a win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14 to keep up in the hunt for the final NFC Wild Card spot.

At 6-6, the Buccaneers are tied with the Dallas Cowboys and one game behind the Seattle Seahawks, who currently hold the final playoff position in the NFC. Tampa Bay is coming off back-to-back losses, and another defeat would leave the team in hot water. Following their contest against the Eagles, the Bucs have games remaining against the New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams and Atlanta Falcons.

The Miami Dolphins are in worse shape entering their game against the San Francisco 49ers. The Dolphins are 5-7, two games back of the final AFC Wild Card spot with three games to play. A loss to the Niners would all but eliminate Miami.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are just playing for pride at this point. Jacksonville hosts the New York Jets Sunday, hoping to win its third game of the season.
