Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

16. Miami Dolphins (LW: 22)

After nearly upending Green Bay Week 6, the Dolphins got the job done against Chicago at Soldier Field. Ryan Tannehill and Lamar Miller played well, and this defense continues to force opposing offenses’ hands. We can’t throw the towel in on Miami just yet.

What to know: Remember, the Wild Cat? That was the Dolphins who brought it into the NFL; now they’re onto the read-option. “The Dolphins rushed 17 times for 84 yards off the option play. Ryan Tannehill kept the ball three times for 49 yards on such plays, and now the Dolphins have rushed for a league-high 387 yards this season using the zone read.” (ESPN Stats & Info).
