The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were blown out by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday 41-14, falling to 4-9 on the season. If the 2011 NFL season ended today, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would have the 9th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The Bucs have had a very disappointing season in 2011, as they were expected to compete for the NFC South division crown. The silver lining however is, the team is in line to get a premier player added to their roster.

Currently however the Buccaneers are tied with five other teams, record wise. The Bucs are tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins, Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins, and the Cleveland Browns. Based on current strength of schedule, the Bucs would hold the SOS tie breaker over some of the other teams they are currently tied with.
