TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The surest path to the playoffs is winning a division title.
It’s also a journey that doesn’t figure to be easy for Carolina and equally inconsistent Tampa Bay in the NFC South, where two games separate first and last place.
Beginning Sunday, the Panthers (4-3) will play five of their remaining nine games within the tightly contested division that produced the past two NFC representatives in the Super Bowl.
The last-place Buccaneers (2-4) play six of their final 10 against Carolina, Atlanta (3-3), and current division leader New Orleans (4-2), which has rebounded from an 0-2 start to win four straight games.
