NFL power rankings: How far do Bucs fall after loss to Steelers?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were expected to walk all over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6, but instead, they were sent home with a shocking 20-18 road loss.

Tom Brady and the Bucs offense struggled yet again, while the defense just couldn’t get off the field on third-and-long, even against the quarterback combination of Kenny Pickett and Mitch Trubisky.

The Bucs now sit at 3-3, and hope to right the ship in Week 7 when they travel to Carolina to take on the lowly Panthers.

Where does Tampa Bay stand in comparison to the rest of the league following Sunday’s crushing defeat?
