The Buccaneers (9-6) are alive for a wild card, but need to win next Sunday at New Orleans and get lots of help.

Philadelphia (10-4) clinched the NFC East with the New York Giants’ 45-17 loss at Green Bay. The Eagles’ night game against Minnesota was moved to Tuesday night because of blizzard conditions in Philadelphia.

Green Bay and the Giants both are 9-6, but the Packers hold the tiebreaker for a wild card thanks to their win over New York and will make the playoffs by beating the archrival Bears next Sunday no matter who else finished 10-6. The Bucs need to have a better overall record than those teams to get in.
