2015 NFL Power Rankings Week 12 tour: Dolphins slipping back down internet power rankings

New, comments

Our weekly look at how the Miami Dolphins are being listed around the internet in 2015 NFL Power Rankings.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins fell to 4-6 on the season, dropping their latest contest 24-14 to the Dallas Cowboys. The Dolphins were starting to see an uptick in the 2015 NFL Power Rankings from around the internet, despite being a team with a losing record, but will probably see any positive feelings about the club start to dissipate this week as they now fall two games under 0.500.

As we do every week, we take a tour of the internet this morning to get a look at exactly how people are feeling about the Dolphins. Below you will find several website power rankings listed, with the Dolphins' rank for this week and the change from last week. We also include any comments the site uses to explain Miami's latest rank. At the end, we average the rankings and compare it to last week's average.

Yet another 4-6 team trying to get in position for a wild-card stretch run. The problem for this particular 4-6 team? No offense, Fin fans, but your team has no offense. Miami went 1-for-10 on third down and gained just 210 yards in total. Ryan Tannehill's pick-six to Rolando McClain wasn't helpful. Sunday's game at the New Meadowlands carries weighty wild-card implications.

Since his four-touchdown game against the Texans, Ryan Tannehill has posted a 23.3 Total QBR. The Dolphins have lost three of four in that time.

Seven carries for red-hot Lamar Miller in a game that Miami didn't trail by more than one score until the final nine minutes? Sure, makes total sense.

Remember when Ndamukong Suh called a players-only meeting in Detroit in 2013? He's reportedly going back to that well with the the Dolphins.

It’s going to be a long December at Sun Life Stadium, with four games there in the last five weeks of the season.

So much for the temporary boost that the Dolphins received after firing Joe Philbin and promoting Dan Campbell to be their interim coach. Their 2-0 start under Campbell has been followed by three losses in four games, and they are close to being as irrelevant as they were under Philbin.

The Dolphins couldn’t follow up their win over the Eagles with a win over the Cowboys. They came out extremely flat in this game, and while they played better as the game wore on, they were in an early hole.

After early bump under Dan Campbell, seems run game and D have gone back into hibernation. Do Dolphins hibernate?

Week 11 MVP: Olivier Vernon has bolstered the Dolphins pass rush, coming up with a sack, two tackles for losses, and four QB hits. One thing to know: After a brief resurgence, the Dolphins are basically back to where they started before the Dan Campbell takeover.

Lost to the Cowboys this week and I’ll roll the dice and predict they win this week at the Jets.
