Miami Dolphins: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#28)

Last week: 27 (-1)

Record: 1-1

Ryan Tannehill is going to have days like he had in the opener (20-36 219 yards, 3 interceptions) and days like he had last week (18-30 200 yards, 1 touchdown). He’s a raw rookie with 19 collegiate starts. He’s going to be inconsistent. I don’t give them too much credit for beating a crappy Raiders team at home, especially when the Raiders were playing a 1 PM start as a West Coast team and coming off a short week because of Monday Night Football. Also, I’m still not sold that last week’s hero, Reggie Bush, will be able to stay healthy for 16 games. Bush rushed for 172 yards and 2 touchdowns on 26 carries, and added 25 yards more through the air on 3 catches. He made live easy for Tannehill and was the primary reason they won.
