SB Nation just came out with the latest edition of their 2011 NFL Power Rankings and the teams in our region are moving in vastly different directions.
The Dophins are the big climbers after winning their third game in a row over the weekend, in impressive fashion to boot. They moved up from No. 31 to No. 25 this week.
Wow. Three in a row? That's incredible. Give Miami credit for returning from 0-7 to win three straight, including two blowouts.
If they beat the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, they might even be able to crack the top 20.
The Buccaneers continue to pile up losses, but the guys at SB Nation never seem to drop them too far in the rankings. After another loss, albeit it to the undefeated Packers, they only fell one spot to No. 18.
The Bucs are young but you hoped they would take a step forward this year. Unfortunately, it appears they're headed in the wrong direction.
The Jacksonville Jaguars lost on the last play to an equally unimpressive Cleveland Browns team over the weekend, but they stood pat at No. 26.
There's not a lot to say about Jacksonville. We expected plenty of struggles with Blaine Gabbert in there.
