Loss to Atlanta not too costly for Tampa Bay

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (AP) -

Tampa Bay's resilience will be tested as the Buccaneers strive to rebound from the team's first loss in a month and remain in playoff contention.

Sunday's one-point loss to the Atlanta Falcons stopped a four-game winning streak, but was not nearly as costly as it could been because three other clubs pursuing what would be the second NFC wild-card position also hurt themselves with losses over the weekend.

Tampa Bay (6-5) remains tied with Seattle and Minnesota, one game ahead of New Orleans, Dallas and Washington, all at  5-6. If the playoffs started this week, the Seahawks would be the second wild card because of a better conference record.
