SB Nation has just come with the Week 10 edition of their 2011 NFL Power Rankings, and they have the Buccaneers and Jaguars staying in pretty much the same place as last week despite both losing games.
The Buccaneers now rank 15th (14th last week) after that loss to the Saints in New Orleans.
The Bucs are .500 through eight games and their mettle will be tested the next two weeks against the Texans and at Green Bay.
15, which is pretty much the middle of the pack, seems like a pretty good landing spot for a team that has been as inconsistent as the Bucs have been this year. But they stand to slide a little bit more with those tough matchups coming up.
As for the Jaguars, they also lost this weekend, and they only fell one spot as well from 24th to 25th.
What do you say about this team? I'm not sure where their strength lies.
The big story in these Power Rankings is that the NFC, somewhat surprisingly, is dominating the rankings. The Packers are in first, obviously, but they are followed up by the 49ers at No. 2 and the Saints at No. 4.
