ESPN: Bucs among NFL's top dozen teams
The Bucs are ranked 12th in the preseason edition of ESPN.com's weekly NFL power rankings.
The rankings are the result of a vote by ESPN.com's John Clayton and Ashley Fox, AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky, NFC West blogger Mike Sando and AFC North blogger James Walker.
"It starts with the quarterback, and Tampa Bay has a good one in Josh Freeman,'' Sando writes.
The defending Super Bowl champion Packers are ranked first, followed by the Patriots and Eagles.
