Bucs slip in Sports Illustrated power rankings
Last Sunday's lost to the Ravens dropped the Bucs from 10th to 13th in the latest Sports Illustrated NFL power rankings. About the Bucs, SI NFL writer Don Banks writes:
The Bucs are the league's only seven-win team that has managed to be outscored (223-219), and that speaks to their inability to get the job done this season when they were fighting above their weight class. But I think they've got an upset in them at some point in the coming five weeks, and this week's home date with the NFC-best 9-2 Falcons represents a prime opportunity.
