A weekly examination of the Buccaneers' ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 19 | Last Week: 31 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers actually climbed one spot in the ESPN.com Power Rankings during their bye week.
I don’t view this as a ringing endorsement for the Buccaneers. I think their bye week simply took them off the radar of the voters. If they continue losing and the Jaguars and Giants find a way to win, the Bucs will have a shot at No. 32.
