Power Rankings preview: Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins became just one of eight teams to improve to 2-0 on Sunday. That should garner the Dolphins some hard-earned respect this week around the league.

With that in mind, where will the Dolphins land in ESPN.com's latest NFL Power Rankings?

Miami went from No. 20 to No. 17 last week after beating the lowly Cleveland Browns (0-2). Will the Dolphins make a bigger jump after upsetting the Indianapolis Colts (1-1), 24-20, Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium?

The Colts were ranked No. 12 by ESPN.com’s panel last week. Miami could climb to that range or higher after beating Indianapolis in a head-to-head matchup on the road.

Several teams above Miami suffered losses on Sunday, including the New York Giants (0-2), St. Louis Rams (1-1) and Dallas Cowboys (1-1). The Dolphins should leapfrog all of those teams.
