Tampa Bay is 3-4 on the year and in second place in the NFC South. While the New Orleans Saints are also 3-4, the Buccaneers win the tiebreaker with a better record in the NFC South. Tampa Bay should have won on Sunday, but fell to an Oakland Raiders team that was penalized a record 23 times in overtime, 30-24. The Buccaneers just can’t win games at home for whatever reason.
