A weekly examination of the Bills' ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 30 | Last Week: 24 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
At No. 24, the Bills are out of striking range for a playoff spot, and also dangerously close to slipping down the ladder as the season ends.
Only one of our six voters placed the Bills at No. 24, and none considered the Bills higher than No. 24. One voter had them as low as No. 28, which is where the Bills could be heading if they don't win this Sunday in Tampa Bay.
The Buccaneers (No. 26) and Jaguars (No. 31) are the Bills' next two opponents. They've combined to win six of their last eight, so neither of those road contests will be easy.
