Buccaneers Power Rankings: Week 7

Bucs drop after hard-fought loss in the desert

It seems no NFL team, and subsequently no survivor pool, is safe in 2017. Week Six saw the last of the unbeaten go down as the Kansas City Chiefs dropped their first of the season to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After suffering another tough loss in Arizona this past weekend, the Buccaneers have now slipped further down this week's NFL Power Rankings. The good news is, both Atlanta and Carolina lost this week, costing Atlanta a top five spot. However, New Orleans has pulled out their last three and is on the uptick themselves, making the NFC South one of the most formidable divisions in football.

Take a look at where the Bucs stack up this week:
