Cardinals playoff scenarios for 2013 include needing some help. The Arizona Cardinals 2013 playoff scenarios have to involve the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beating the New Orleans Saints as well as the team taking care of the San Francisco 49ers at home in Week 17. A report from Saturday (Dec. 28) reveals that the team has been using Twitter to try to spur the Bucs on when it comes to pulling off an upset to close out the season.
The original Twitter post read, "Help us @TBBuccaneers, you're our only hope. #UseTheForce #TBvsNO." It got an almost immediate response from Tampa Bay and that messages reads, "@AZCardinals Pundits are giving us as much a chance as they gave the rebels against the Death Star. We all know how that worked out."
It has become a very amusing side-story for the Week 17 games, but the drama will be raised with the teams all playing at the same time. The Saints will host the Buccaneers at 1:25 p.m. PT, with the Cards then hosting San Francisco out West with the same kickoff time. The Arizona Cardinals 2013 playoff scenarios will play out in a matter of hours, with nothing outside of those two games impacting the team.
In the best case scenario for the team, they win and the Saints lose, making them the No. 6 seed in the 2014 NFC Playoffs. They would then likely play the winner of the NFC East, which would be either the Philadelphia Eagles or Dallas Cowboys.
