Buccaneers Vs. Seahawks: NFL Week 16 Previews

It's 'do-or-die' for two playoff hopefuls in the NFC when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-6) host the Seattle Seahawks (6-8) at Raymond Jones Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Both teams are injury depleted and in a bit of a funk heading into the final two games of the season. Nevertheless, the winner of Sunday's game will still very much be alive for a playoff berth heading into the final weekend of the 2010 NFL regular season. 

Here's a few facts, figures and trends about the two teams' series history, as well as up-to-date season stats for both squads.
