The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the only team of the three NFL teams in Florida to come away with a victory in Week 10 -- and as expected, the Buccaneers are the highest ranked team among Florida's teams in the latest NFL power rankings throughout the internet.

ESPN's power rankings have the Buccaneers ranked No. 13, exactly where they were last week -- despite the fact that the Buccaneers came away with a win over the San Diego Chargers. The Miami Dolphins, meanwhile, dropped three spots to No. 18 following their loss to the Tennessee Titans, while the Jacksonville Jaguars remained No. 31, after losing to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday Night Football.

FOX Sports' Brian Billick is more aggressive with the Buccaneers, ranking them as the No. 10 team in the league -- one spot up from last week. Billick dropped the Dolphins two spots to No. 19, while keeping the Jaguars No. 31.

SB Nation's Joel Thorman moved the Bucs up from No. 17 to No. 14 this week, while dropping the Dolphins down seven spots, from No. 14 to No. 21. Jacksonville moved from No. 31 down to No. 32.
