2022 NFL Power Rankings: Miami Dolphins

Throughout the 2022 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 3 roundup for the Miami Dolphins in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 5

Biggest early adjustment: Get Raheem Mostert more touches

Chase Edmonds was Miami's lead back in Week 1 and throughout the offseason as Mostert rehabbed from a left knee injury. But the former 49ers running back gained 47 yards on 10 carries Sunday in the Dolphins' win over the Ravens, and it was the first time in months that Miami's run game looked like it had some bite to it. Edmonds, while versatile and still deserving of a role, was ineffective against a mediocre Patriots run defense in Week 1; he broke off a 28-yard run on Miami's game-winning drive Sunday, but Mostert should get his second start of the season against the Bills in Week 3.

Members of TuAnon! Step out of the shadows of the dark web and be counted! Your hero has delivered! Tua Tagovailoa put up an historic performance on Sunday in Baltimore, throwing for 469 yards and six touchdowns in an epic comeback victory over the Ravens. Tua was unconscious in the game's fourth quarter, throwing four of his scores in the final period, including the game-winner to Jaylen Waddle with less than a minute to play. This was the proof-of-concept game for first-year coach Mike McDaniel, who has an offense that can deliver in a shootout. Tua will need to stack quality games to prove he's the guy, but this was nothing less than a clarion call to the believers.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 8

They are 2-0 and one of the early-season stories of this season. It becomes a much bigger story if they beat the Bills this week.

USA Today -- Rank: 5

You've got to hand it to QB Tua Tagovailoa, who went deep Sunday — half of his six TD passes covering at least 20 air yards, which doubled his career total entering Week 2. But when you've got WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle (11 catches, 170+ yards, 2 TDs apiece), the 21st century version of The Marks Brothers, that's the way to go. No pair of Dolphins receivers had at least 150 receiving yards in a game since Clayton and Duper in 1986.

The Athletic -- Rank: 6

Trailing 35-14, the Dolphins scored touchdowns on all four of their fourth-quarter drives in securing the most explosive of the three crazy, improbable comebacks in Week 2. In the fourth quarter alone, Tua Tagovailoa completed 13 of 17 passes for 199 yards and four touchdowns. Just for fun, let's extrapolate that one-quarter performance over a 17-game season. That'd be 13,532 passing yards and 272 touchdown passes. Tough news for Peyton Manning, whose 2013 season gave us the current records of 5,477 passing yards and 55 touchdowns. Oh, and Tyreek Hill's 149 fourth-quarter receiving yards would be good for 10,132 yards over the course of a season. Eat it, Calvin Johnson (1,964 receiving yards in 2012).

Yahoo! -- Rank: 6

Well then. Tua Tagovailoa deserves every bit of praise coming his way this week. His 469-yard, six-touchdown game should be a reminder that there should be some patience with quarterback development. Now that he has a coach that believes in him and Tyreek Hill to throw to after a pretty sharp trade, we could see a true breakout season from Tagovailoa. The first two games look pretty good.

PFT -- Rank: 6
