The Miami Dolphins lost to the Houston Texans on Sunday. The Power Rankings across the internet also beat down the team today.

Around the internet today, NFL Week 2 Power Rankings are begining to be published, and the Miami Dolphins are taking a beating in most of the them. The Phinsider Power Rankings will come out on Thursday, but here's a quick look at some of the "mainstream" media is seeing the Dolphins.

Fox Sports (Brian Billick): 31 out of 32 (Last Week: 30)

Ryan Tannehill threw three interceptions and they came in back-to-back-to-back possessions. Yes, three in a row. And then on the fourth possession, a fumble. Long days ahead in Miami.

CBS Sports (Pete Prisco): 31 out of 32 (Last Week: 31)

Opening on the road against a good Texans team is tough to do. But I think we'll see a lot of games like that this season.

AP (Various): 30 out of 32 (Last Week: 27)

ESPN (Various): 30 out of 32 (Last Week: 27)

The Dolphins are in familiar territory: winless after Week 1 for the eighth time in the past 10 years. (Jamison Hensley)

Yahoo! (Zac Wassink): 32 out of 32

Rookie QB Ryan Tannehill had a rough afternoon, and Houston put 21 points on the scoreboard against Miami so quickly that NFL Red Zone nearly missed all of the scores live.

SB Nation (Joel Thorman): 32 of 32 (Last Week: 30)

This'll be a dogfight for the No. 32 spot every week. Miami gutted its way into a 30-10 loss and deserves this honor.

Ouch. Things are not pretty in Miami according to these rankings. Of course, the only thing anyone has to go by is a four turnover day with a 30-10 scoreline. However, looking deeper into the game, Miami played well, other than the 6:30 ending the first half.

Personally, I still believe a record around 8-8 at the end of the season is possible. The Texans were a losss in my book as soon as the schedule was released. The Dolphins simply are not on the same level as the Texans yet. So, really, no-harm-no-foul as of right now.

With that said, the team better fix some of the issues before going up against the Oakland Raiders this week.
