Bucs can play spoiler in NFC South

(TSX / STATS) -- TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have three games remaining in the season against NFC South teams battling for a playoff spot. How they perform could go a long way in determining the future of head coach Dirk Koetter.

Tampa Bay had high expectations entering the season. But injuries at key positions - including quarterback Jameis Winston missing three games with a shoulder injury - and a defense that can't close out games -- has left the Bucs with a 4-9 record entering Monday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons at Raymond James Stadium.

The Bucs' next three opponents - the Falcons, at Carolina and the home finale against New Orleans - will go a long way in determining the NFC South race. The Bucs are winless in the division this season and that has to change if the team is to avoid big changes in the offseason.
