29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (28)
With their fifth loss in a row, it’s officially time to hit the panic button for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as embarrassing doesn’t even begin to describe what took place on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Not even Jameis Winston leaving early with a shoulder injury can be used as an excuse for the Buccaneers since the Saints were well in control before that even took place, as Tampa Bay appears to be in serious trouble heading into Week 10.
For a team to go from being in strong consideration as one of the teams to beat in the NFC at the beginning of the season to a 2-6 record to sit on the bottom of the NFC South is a major surprise for the Buccaneers, especially when seeing all of the weapons they have to work with on offense. Not only does Tampa Bay have one of the league’s toughest receivers to defend in Mike Evans, but the addition of DeSean Jackson was supposed to make this offense nearly unstoppable thanks to finally having a dangerous deep threat.
Instead, the Buccaneers are on the verge of looking forward to next year if this surprise losing streak continues over the next couple of weeks. Maybe with a home meeting against the New York Jets, Tampa Bay can finally begin getting back on the right track in Week 10 to at least give this team some hope in the second half of the regular season.
