The Miami Dolphins (4-5) have fallen on hard times. They lost their fifth game in six tries Monday night, a 22-19 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Miami’s ranking took a tumble after losing to a previously winless team. The Dolphins dropped three spots to No. 22. It’s the lowest ranking all season for Miami.
