Power Rankings: No. 31 Buccaneers

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

Preseason: 19 | Last week: 31 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002

The latest edition of the ESPN.com Power Rankings is out and it’s looking more and more like we’ll need an end-of-season playoff for the bottom spot.

The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to hold on to No. 32. But the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a very solid No. 31.

Both teams are winless and currently are battling for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft. It’s a shame that the Bucs and Jaguars aren’t scheduled to play this season because that may be the only way to truly decide the worst team in the NFL.

If that hypothetical playoff could somehow take place, I’d put my money on the Jaguars to win. The Bucs have more talent, but they seem to have developed an uncanny knack for losing games they could have won.
