Week 15 NFL Power Rankings: Dolphins, Bucs Fall, Jaguars Surge

Tuesday is a very busy day around the Interwebs as pretty much every sports news site comes out with their own version of the 2011 NFL Power Rankings. This latest one is from ESPN, who has some serious movement for teams in the Tampa Bay region, starting with the Dolphins who dropped one spot after losing to the Eagles this weekend. They now sit at No. 23.

Head coach Tony Sparano's third straight losing season sealed his fate in Miami.

Meanwhile, The Jacksonville Jaguars were one of the biggest jumpers this week, raising up three spots after their blowout win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They now sit at No. 26.

The Jaguars have placed 27 players on injured reserve this year -- more than half a roster.

The Buccaneers, one of the more disappointing teams in the NFL, fell two more spots after the aforementioned loss to the Jaguars. They are now at No. 28.

The Bucs have gone from 7-3 last season to 2-7 this season outside their division.
