NFL power rankings 2012: Dolphins, Buccaneers and Jaguars all remain in bottom half

Mike Ehrmann

The Dolphins, Bucs and Jaguars are all in the bottom half of the newest SB Nation NFL power rankings.

2012 has been a dismal season for the Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Week 15 was no exception. Of the three Florida teams, only the Dolphins were able to pick up a win on Sunday, and it came at the expense of the 2-12 Jaguars. The Bucs were humiliated by the New Orleans Saints, 41-0, which all but eliminates them from playoff contention.

In the latest SB Nation NFL power rankings, all three teams are located in the bottom half of the list. The Dolphins are the highest at No. 19, and moved up three spots by virtue of their win over the Jags. The Bucs fell to No. 22 from No. 18 last week, and the Jaguars are all the way down at No. 31, the same as last week.

Each Florida team plays at home next Sunday, as the Dolphins host the Buffalo Bills, the Jaguars host the New England Patriots and the Bucs host the St. Louis Rams. All three games are 1 p.m. starts.
