2021 Bucs NFL Power Rankings Week 1

Well, well, well how the turntables. The Bucs are entering the 2021 regular season no lower than number two on major outlet power rankings.

As a fun little exercise, instead of taking the preseason rankings each major media outlet had for the Buccaneers, I looked at Week 17 of last year. The Bucs didn't crack the top five.

But to quote the infamous Michael Scott, "Well, well, well, how the turntables."

Coming off a Super Bowl LV win, the Bucs kept all 22 of their championship starters intact and then some – subsequently giving those folks on 'Hoarders' a run for their money. With a full offseason and preseason under their belt this time, the team looks poised for success yet again.

It seems pundits across the league agree. In a stark contrast to last season, the Bucs now start the season ranked no lower than two.
