Not that anyone listens to the noise but just in case you were curious, we have some power rankings from around the pool of NFL experts for you to take a gander at.

Going into Week One of the 2018 NFL season, the Bucs were ranked pretty low on the totem pole. Behind a win over the division-rival New Orleans Saints, who many picked as a potential Super Bowl contender, the Bucs are being looked at in a little bit of a different light headed into Week Two. The offense was as advertised in the preseason with receivers DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans each tallying over 140 receiving yards apiece along with a total of three touchdowns between the two of them. Sprinkle in some FitzMagic, 417 yards with four passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown, by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, and the Bucs put up 48 points in the Superdome, tying their franchise record for most points scored in a single game.

The experts did take notice and the Bucs have jumped as many as 10 spots in some rankings. For the full rankings list, take a look below:
