The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars are all ranked in the bottom half of SB Nation's Week 4 power rankings.
The state of Florida has seen better days - at least as it pertains to the NFL.
In SB Nation's latest power rankings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the highest-ranked team in the state, coming in at No. 23, while the Miami Dolphins are No. 29, and the Jacksonville Jaguars sit in the No. 31 spot -- despite last week's thrilling win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Here's what Joel Thorman over at SB Nation had to say about each Florida team.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 24, 1-2): Seven-point loss in New York and a six-point loss in Dallas. Tough road trip.
Miami Dolphins (LW: 26, 1-2): They're a timeout away from 2-1. Unfortunately, that's their own timeout.
Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 32, 1-2): Similar deal with Oakland. A win last weekend should move them up more. In Jacksonville's case, that's one spot.
Needless to say, the Buccaneers have looked the best, by a large margin, of any of Florida's NFL teams, and could very easily be 3-0 if a few breaks had gone Tampa Bay's way.
Looking ahead to Week 4, the Bucs play host to the Washington Redskins, while the Jaguars welcome the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Dolphins travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals. All three teams will look to improve to 2-2 on the season.
