A weekly examination of the Buccaneers' ESPN.com Power Ranking:

Preseason: 19 | Last Week: 30 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002

The latest rankings are out and the good news is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t the worst team in the NFL or even the worst team in Florida.

The bad news is they’re as close as they can get on both counts. The Bucs came in at No. 31 in the latest rankings. Only the Jacksonville Jaguars are worse.

Tampa Bay and Jacksonville appear to be on a collision course for the first pick in the 2014 draft. Logic says the Bucs and Jaguars are bound to win some games because it’s difficult to go winless through an entire season.

But if you’ve watched how the Bucs have consistently found ways to lose games, it’s difficult to imagine them winning any game. The Jaguars might be worse, but the Bucs seem to be doing their best to close the gap.
