Sunday’s loss by Tampa Bay didn’t completely take the Buccaneers out of the playoff picture.

In fact, they remain right on the fringe. If the season ended today, the Falcons, 49ers, Packers and Giants would be in as division winners and the Bears (8-4) and Seahawks (7-5) would be the wild-card teams, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

At 6-6, the Bucs are just a game behind the Seahawks. The Cowboys and Vikings also have 6-6 records. Dallas would hold a tiebreaker on Tampa Bay and Minnesota because it has a better conference record than those two. The Bucs would hold a tiebreaker on the Vikings because they won a head-to-head meeting.
