Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-5)
At San Diego (5-6), New Orleans (5-6), at Dallas (11-1), at New Orleans (5-6), Carolina (4-7)
After starting the year 1-3, the Bucs have won five of their last seven games. They are definitely a team the Vikings will keep their eye on as the season enters its final month.
Tampa Bay is going to likely have to win all if not four of their final five games this year to get into the playoffs. It is not going to be easy as they will be facing off against a top ten scoring offense each week.
But at the end of the day, the Bucs do not really seem like a team that Minnesota should worry about taking their playoff spot.
