The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 0-1 after today’s disappointing loss to the New York Jets, but they aren’t alone in last place in the NFC South.
NFC South Standings after Week 1:
1. New Orleans Saints – 1-0
2. Carolina Panthers – 0-1
3. Atlanta Falcons – 0-1
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 0-1
Week 2 Schedule (all times Eastern):
St. Louis Rams @ Atlanta Falcons – 1:00 p.m., Sunday, September 15th
Carolina Panthers @ Buffalo Bills – 1:00 p.m., Sunday, September 15th
New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 4:05 p.m., Sunday, September 15th
It’s hard to call a Week 2 game a must win, but in a 16 game regular season schedule, every game matters. The Bucs certainly need a win, not only to get their season rolling, but to make sure the Saints don’t pull away early, while the same could be said for the Falcons and Panthers, who like the Bucs, lost close games in Week 1.
