The New Orleans Saints (1-3) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-3) meet Sunday in a divisional game that quietly holds huge implications for both teams. At 1-3, the Saints and the Bucs are only one game from the NFC South lead, with the Atlanta Falcons (2-2) and the Carolina Panthers (2-2) both losing last week. With the division being so mediocre, it is conceivable that nine or ten victories may be enough to win it.
Despite the lack of fanfare, the winner of this game between New Orleans and Tampa Bay on Sunday could find itself tied for the division lead, while taking another step towards a chance (albeit slim) to play in January.
