Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Week 15 NFL Power Rankings (#15)

Last week: 15 (-4)

Record: 6-7

Net points per drive: 0.25 (11th)

DVOA: 1.1% (14th)

Weighted DVOA: 0.4% (15th)

A home loss to the Eagles effectively eliminates them from the playoffs. They would have had to win in New Orleans and Atlanta to make it anyway, but I thought they could, easily since the Falcons would likely be resting starters week 17. It turns out, that maybe they were overrated. They seem to be nothing if not streaky and have cooled down of late. If they heat up again, a win in New Orleans and Atlanta, as well as at home for the Rams, could happen, but it’s more likely they end up at a nice round 8-8.
