Through three games, the Bucs defense is currently ranked #11 overall in the NFL, and tied for #3 in the NFC (Minnesota and TB are both allowing 310.3 yards per game).

Based on points allowed, the Bucs defense is #5 in the league, and #2 in the NFC (12.3 points per game) behind Minnesota (12.0 points per game).

In total offense, the Bucs are ranked #22 in the NFL and #11 in the NFC. Based on points per game, the Bucs are #9 in the NFC and #18 in the NFL.

Interesting note: If the Bucs had managed to score two TD's instead of two FG's against the Seahawks on the road, the Bucs offense would be ranked #11 in the NFL in points per game.

Also of note:

Had the Bucs handed off to E.G. a couple of more times instead of taking a knee near the Saints goal line, had they scored another TD, the Bucs offense would be ranked #13 in the league in points.

I bet they are close to the NFL's #1 in Kick/Punt return yards allowed.

And I have a dog that is he hadn't stopped to..  and something about a rabbit.  Stats over a year make an impact.   Over a three game span it is just the beginning of collecting data that will become more meaningful later.   JMHO

Of course. It's just an interesting point of discussion right now. I don't care where the offense or defense are ranked, so long as they win a bunch of games.

Week 8 is exactly when stats and rankings become rellavent IMO.

Personally, I can care less if a team has the #4 defense/offense in the league, this is Sunday afternoon, ANYone can and will win. Period.

Well the offense looks a lot better than this trash:
Bucs overall offense rank #24
Overall rushing rank #27
Overall passing #15
Overall scoring #18
Overall touchdowns #24
.....





......
O, and we won the superbowl that year

Goes to show that stats mean nothing unless it's of the defensive type because defense wins championships.

Now that is a stat that means something all year long.
