Tony Sparano leads the field in SportsNation's head coach approval ratings after Week 11.
Sparano, who has guided the Miami Dolphins to a 6-4 record with four straight victories, has a 94 percent approval rating as of late Tuesday night. He's one point ahead of undefeated Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher and two points ahead of fellow miracle worker Mike Smith of the Atlanta Falcons.
New York Jets coach Eric Mangini is tied with Tampa Bay Buccaneers boss Jon Gruden for seventh at 86 percent. The Jets on Thursday night beat the New England Patriots in overtime to take over sole possession of first place in the AFC East.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick has a 68 percent approval rating, which is 15th.
Buffalo Bills coach Dick Jauron is way down the chart at 31 percent, which actually is up two ticks from last week's season-low rating. The Bills have lost four straight. Jauron's approval rating was 95 percent after Weeks 3 and 4.
