Seahawks Vs. Bucs: Live Reactions To Game's Biggest Stories

The hunt is on.  

With only two weeks left in the regular season, both the Seattle Seahawks (6-8) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-6) are desperately vying for playoff scraps.  

For Seattle, a win in Week 16 provides a much needed edge in the neck-and-neck-and-neck NFC West.  Even with the win, Seattle has to beat the Rams in Week 17, but a win over Tampa Bay would help if St. Louis can’t eliminate the 49ers this Sunday.

Tampa Bay has to go all-in and win out then cross their fingers for losses from Green Bay, Chicago, and NYG.

Both teams are playing for keeps.

Seattle has not played at all consistently this season, exhibiting only fleeting flashes of excellence among an overall theme of mediocrity and missed opportunities and Tampa Bay’s defense managed to give up the game to the still struggling Detroit Lions in overtime last weekend.  

Seattle’s challenge this Sunday will be to find and capitalize on the Buccaneers’ mid-ranked (20th overall) defense and rookie starters (eight).

The Buccaneers’ defense has been especially patchy on the ground lately, giving up nearly 200 rushing yards to both Washington and Detroit.  Seattle did a great job utilizing the running backs in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Falcons, and a repeat performance against this lesser team can equal big returns.
