NFL Power Rankings, Week 8: Dolphins in the middle of the pack

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Miami was off this week, but it didn't stop the Dolphins from shifting in the power rankings.

The Miami Dolphins fell a spot in the SB Nation power rankings this week.

The Dolphins, who were off on their bye week, sit at No. 20.

20. Miami Dolphins (LW: 19, 3-3): Give credit to Joe Philbin for bringing some stability here and knowing exactly how to work his rookie quarterback into the mix.

The Dolphins are on a two-game winning streak. Miami beat Cincinnati on the road, 17-13, and knocked off St. Louis, 17-14, at home.

The highest ranking for the Dolphins this week comes in at No. 14 in the CBS Sports power rankings. Miami is slotted between Philadelphia (13th) and Dallas (15th).

ESPN's power rankings has Miami at No. 16. The Dolphins could slip soon, though: "Miami, which has lost eight of 11 road games since the start of the 2011 season, plays three of the next four games away from home."

Miami is at the No. 21 spot in the FOX Sports' power rankings. The Dolphins did not move a spot after the bye, sitting in front of the Bucs and behind the Bengals.

The Dolphins will travel to play the New York Jets (3-4) on Sunday at 1 p.m. on CBS.
