Top 6:

1. Miami

4. Kansas City

5. Los Angeles Rams

6. Baltimore

Miami isn't that good. They are formidable but no way are they number one or better than the Bills.

I can understand Miami being ranked above Buffalo based on the fact that they did win the game on Sunday, but I don’t see them being ranked above Philadelphia whatsoever.

If they want to put Miami at #1 because they are 3-0 and beat the former #1 team (Buffalo) and the current #6 team (Baltimore), fine. It's a power ranking and doesn't mean anything at all. I think Miami is a good team and a playoff caliber team; however, I personally would have them somewhere around ten.

I have a feeling that Burrow rips them apart on Thursday and brings them back down to earth.

Assuming they don't rip up Burrow first, I don't think he makes it to the end of the season at the rate he is getting sacked.

I hope so, but I just don't know if the Bengals can withstand all that blitzing that the Fins do. I've watched all of the Bengals games this year OL has been bad in passing situations and Burrow has poor pocket awareness and holds the ball too long.

The Dolphins pressure rate was poor before us...we had back up and exhausted lineman early.  I think Spencer Brown was gassed in the first quarter.

But we'll see.

Same. The Dolphins defense was on the field for 40 minutes and 90 plays. Short week on the road. Their defense will be gassed by the 2nd half. Bengals 38 Dolphins 17. Miami falls to #10 in the power rankings by Friday morning.

It isn't the Dolphins pressure as much as it is the inability for Cinci to keep Joe upright. 15 sacks so far this year out of 135 pass attempts (or something close to that). 

 

That said, I do think the Dolphins will give up a ton of yards (again) and I do see them loosing on Thursday night.

I think, if the Bengals' Oline holds up, they win.

 

Although, Miami is riding a bit of a lucky streak at the moment. It took a complete meltown by the Balt defense and a miraculous 4th quarter by Tua (almost 30% of his total yards and 50% of his total TDs for the season in one quarter) to beat Baltimore by 3 pts; and missing players (injury and weather related) and miscue after miscue by the Buff offense to beat the Bills by 2 pts.

 

I don't believe it is a sustainable way to beat good teams, but they are having a bit of good fortune right now.

The Bills did that in 2020.

In the circles that actually matter -- i.e. Vegas -- Buffalo is still the prohibitive Super Bowl favorite.

 

Power rankings are clickbait and intended to get people talking.  Nothing else.

And, as such, it is a conversational opportunity, no? I do believe this forum is set up for such.
