Bucs 30th in ESPN Ultimate NFL Rankings
It's the slowest portion of the NFL calendar, which means your favorite beat writers are treasuring every second of sleep we can get during the next couple of weeks.
To fill the void, ESPN's NFL Live is debuting something called its Ultimate NFL Rankings, with the bottom eight teams unveiled on today's episode.
The Bucs came in No. 30, in front of only the Bills and Rams, ranked 31st and 32nd, respectively. According to ESPN, the power rankings come from a poll of 15 of the network's analysts and insiders.
They clearly don't think much of the Bucs or their potential for improvement. Anyway, here are the bottom eight teams.
31. Buffalo Bills
30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
29. Cleveland Browns
28. Detroit Lions
27. Kansas City Chiefs
26. Jacksonville Jaguars
25. Oakland Raiders
