Week 9 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 28)

Rumors suggest the Bucs are preparing to break up the roster, with Vincent Jackson and Doug Martin the most prominent names being floated around as trade candidates. Lovie Smith won’t be canned after one season, despite the fact this team was expected to be competitive right off the bat.

What to know: Tampa Bay’s defense has been a major disappointment this year, with the exception being defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. McCoy earned a +4 grade by Pro Football Focus after recording a sack, two hits, three hurries, and a batted pass.
