A weekly examination of the Buccaneers' ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 19 | Last Week: 31 | ESPN.com Power Rankings since 2002
The bad news is the Bucs really couldn’t go any lower. They’re at No. 31 for the second straight week and the only reason they’re not No. 32 is because the Jacksonville Jaguars have been even more dismal.
But the Buccaneers could have a shot at No. 32 next week. The Bucs have a bye this week, while Jacksonville faces the St. Louis Rams, who have been less than stellar.
