Power Rankings: No. 30 Tampa Bay

By Pat Yasinskas

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

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

As bad as things seem to be in Tampa Bay, here’s a reminder that they could be worse.

The latest ESPN.com Power Rankings are out and the Buccaneers stayed at No. 30 for the second straight week. Although some disenchanted Tampa Bay fans might disagree, our panel of voters thinks that two teams are worse off than the Buccaneers.

The New York Giants came in at No. 31 and the Jacksonville Jaguars held steady at No. 32.

If you’re a Tampa Bay fan who’s unhappy with how the Bucs have performed, this may come as little consolation. But you’re not as bad off as you would be if you were a fan of the Giants or Jaguars.
