Bucs hold steady at No. 14 in Sports Illustrated power rankings
It really has been an amazing season for the Bucs. No matter what happens from here on out, the Bucs will finish with a winning record and there are like three people on the planet who thought that was even remotely possibly for the season. Anyway, the Bucs come in again at No. 14 in the latest power rankings by Sports Illustrated NFL writer Don Banks, who writes:
Josh Freeman notched his fifth fourth-quarter comeback of the season at Washington, and the more you see of the Bucs' second-year quarterback, the more you realize how much better he is right now than either of the two more highly drafted 2009 first-round QBs: Detroit's injury-prone Matthew Stafford or the Jets' inconsistent Mark Sanchez.
