26. Miami Dolphins (+2)
This season is about Tua, and my power rankings are going to skew this team higher than their record because I think that they are basically playing with a hand-tied behind their back, trying to be patient and smart. That should be rewarded.
They stuck with one of the most well-coached teams in the NFL today with the Buffalo Bills and they did it despite allowing 4 touchdowns from Josh Allen. Given the talent that the Dolphins have at cornerback, I think this is going to be a fluke and not the norm.
25. Atlanta Falcons (+2)
Two teams here that moved up despite losses.
I’m going, to be honest, I thought the Falcons were going to get toasted by the Dallas offense today, and I guess I wasn’t wrong. Where I was wrong is that I didn’t think it would take an onside kick to lose the game.
This is a dead team walking and they need a new coach, but man that offense is good enough to keep them in every game and how low can you keep a team that is dominant on offense even without Julio Jones making a huge impact?
