We need to face the fact that we wont have HFA.

I am going to assume that means Point Margin between common games.

I.E. We beat Tampa 31-6, Atlanta beat them 27-21.. We had a 25 point margin thus a larger Strength of Victory.

Keep in mind, that only comes into play if everything above it is a dead tie.

All we need is to take care of business Sunday and have the Bucs win over ATL.

That happens and we are in the driver's seat for HFA.

As for Carolina, stranger things have happened. This week the Bucs have a good shot at taking them down. I would not be shocked to see them drop two of three. Then, if we take care of our business wee have home field.
In Atlanta's last 8 road games they are 6-2. The two losses have come at the Steelers and Philly. Very Very hard places to play.

Especially if Roddy White isn't allowed to push off CB's.

We've got five games left...and none of them are automatic. This is not a new rodeo. We really have to win Cinci and St. Louie games and then put together some of our best stuff in Atlanta and Baltimore to give ourselves the best chance. Ending the season at home against Tampa Bay may also cause a few ulcers. Tampa trying to make a statement, go down swinging, and play beyond themselves, and a couple of our guys don't eat their Wheaties...been there. We have to handle our business and get some help clipping the DirtyBird. We have to just settle into domination mode and let the chips fall where they may. We can beat anybody, home or away, when we play our brand of football.
