Miami Dolphins Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Miami Dolphins in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 4

Non-QB MVP: WR Tyreek Hill

Hill could be the MVP of the entire league, regardless of position. The league's leading receiver is on pace to break 2,000 receiving yards for the first time in NFL history and remains its premier downfield threat. While he has commanded a higher target share in 2023 than his previous season with the Dolphins, he has shown that he can handle the extra workload. The Dolphins' offense has slowed a bit from its pace to start the season, but Hill remains on track for yet another first-team All-Pro nomination. -- Marcel Louis-Jacques -- Rank: 6

Falling to the Bills, Eagles and Chiefs -- all outside of Miami -- brings no shame, but it's true that the Dolphins haven't beaten a quality team yet. That said, the loss to Kansas City in Germany wasn't a lost cause; the defense arguably played its best game, and the rushing attack showed signs of life despite the absence of De'Von Achane. Jalen Ramsey now has two games with this team under his belt, and the Week 9 returns of CB Xavien Howard and S Jevon Holland helped Miami hold the Chiefs to 67 second-half yards and Travis Kelce to his lowest receiving output in a game since 2018. If the offense can regain its firepower after the bye, the Dolphins will have a chance to change the can't-beat-a-good-team narrative down the stretch. Currently, five of their eight remaining games are against opponents who are .500 or better.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 8

They have to show they can beat a good team. It hasn't happened yet, so the questions are still there.

USA Today -- Rank: 10

For those keeping score at home, that's 39 points per game in their six wins (all against teams without winning records), and 17 per game in three losses — all against projected playoff squads.

The Athletic -- Rank: 7

Report card: B-plus

The Dolphins have played three teams this season that currently have a winning record. They are 0-3 and averaging 17 points per game in those games. Against everyone else, the Dolphins are 6-0 and averaging 39 points per game. Miami still leads the league with 435.3 yards per game, but it has been held under 300 yards by the Eagles and now the Chiefs in the last three weeks.

FOX -- Rank: 6

Am I being too easy on the Dolphins if I'm encouraged by the loss to Kansas City? Yes, a loss is still a loss. That was a much more inspired effort than what they showed against Buffalo and Philly. But they're going to have to find a way to top 20 points against their best competition.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 7

The story of the Dolphins' first half of the season is set: They're amazing against bad teams and can't beat any good teams. They don't have a win over a team that has a winning record. Sunday was a disappointing performance, being shut out in the first half by the Chiefs, then coming up short at the end. It's fine to beat up bad teams, but that won't take you too far in the playoffs.

PFT -- Rank: 6

They'll have several more chances this year to finally beat a good team.
