Buccaneers in NFL Power Rankings: Week 6

It was the Buccaneers’ bye week so any movement in the rankings was not of Tampa Bay’s own doing. Unsurprisingly, there weren’t any major shakeups as a result. The Bucs actually climbed in Yahoo! and USA Today’s rankings, citing mostly the fact that quarterback Jameis Winston will be making his first start of 2018 as an extra jolt for Tampa Bay. The Bucs continue to be faced with a formidable division with both the Saints and now Panthers ranking in or near the top five teams in the league. Both teams are coming off major wins and show no signs of slowing up. The Bucs did beat the Saints on the road in Week One and have yet to face the Panthers this season. Week Six will see the Bucs in their second division game of the season and the chance to gain some ground in both the division and the standings.
