First-year head coach Lovie Smith was hired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to fix their problems. Not many of the questions have been answered, as there is still question marks at quarterback since neither Josh McCown and Mike Glennon are the answer for the future.

Months after the season started, the Bucs are struggling just like last season under former head coach Greg Schiano. While Schiano was ousted after a 4-12 mark, the Bucs made free agent signings in hopes to strength their team for this season.

At the moment, they are one of the worst teams in the NFL. The New York Jets also have a 2-9 record, while the Oakland Raiders and the Jacksonville Jaguars have worse records with 1-10 marks.

This season, the Bucs are 2-9 and are in fourth place in the NFC South. But they are just two games out of first place. Yes, this is really how close they are to winning the lowly division.

Both the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints are tied with 4-7 records. However, the Falcons are currently in first place as they own the tiebreaker of the Saints.

If they can pull this off, it would need a miracle. At this point in the season, they do not have a single conference win.

They are currently 0-4 within the conference, with games against the Panthers and Saints remaining. In conference games, they’ve been outscored 140 to 76.

Both of the Bucs wins have come against the Pittsburgh Steelers (27-24) and the Washington Redskins (27-7).
