Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#8)

Last week: 11 (+3)

Record: 6-4

In order to go on a run, you have to be able to win ugly and win a game that you probably weren’t supposed to win. They have now won 5 of 6 since the bye and this close win wasn’t a fluke. It actually only improved their record in games decided by a touchdown or less to just 2-4 this season. They haven’t lost by more than a touchdown. They have a +57 points differential on the season, 4th in the loaded NFC, 8th in the NFL, and most important they’re hot. This is a scary team that can easily knock off an underwhelming Falcons team this week.
