Bucs potential opponent determined



One note stemming from Saturday's NFC wild-card games was the following: a Bucs victory will send Tampa Bay to Dallas for a second-round game.

Seattle's victory against Washington locked the Seahawks into a matchup with Green Bay next Saturday. Has Washington pulled off the road upset, the Bucs would have traveled to Green Bay with a win today.

Also, as a result of Saturday's NFC outcome, this will officially be the Bucs' final home game of the season. There was a very small chance of Tampa Bay hosting a potential NFC title game, but that would have required the Bucs be the highest seed still alive. Their only potential opponent under that scenario would have been Washington, and they're now home for the offseason.
