"Race to 10" Update: Week 9

A peek ahead at the upcoming schedule of the 5-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 

WIN 17-14 Cleveland; Buccaneers Ranked #27
WIN 20-7 Carolina; Buccaneers Ranked #20
LOSS 38-13 Pittsburgh; Buccaneers Ranked #22
WIN 24-21 Cincinnati; Buccaneers Ranked #17
LOSS 31-6 New Orleans; Buccaneers Ranked #19
WIN 18-17 Saint Louis; Buccaneers Ranked #17
WIN 38-35 Arizona; Buccaneers Ranked #13
LOSS 21-28 Atlanta; Buccaneers Ranked #13 (Current NFL expert ranking)

Up Next:
Carolina (1-7)  #31

@San Francisco (2-6)  #28
@Baltimore (6-2)  #1
Atlanta (6-2)  #4
@Washington (4-4)  #21
Detroit (2-6)  #25
Seattle (4-4)  #24
@New Orleans (6-3)  #7

Remaining Schedule Cumulative Record: 31-34

The Buccaneers maintained their best ranking of the season after a hard fought game in Atlanta.  The Buccaneers have two very winnable games up next, then a chance to test their progress against the currently rated #1 team in the NFL.  However, they must win the next two to stay on track for the playoffs

Using the NFL.com expert consensus rankings (which change weekly), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still on course for a 10-6 finish and an NFC Playoff birth!
