Open Thread: Miami Dolphins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Monday Night Football

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Monday Night Football this weeks features a battle for "supremacy" in Florida.

The great state of Florida currently has three NFL representatives. The state of California currently has three NFL representatives. In Florida, those three teams currently have a cumulative record of 5-20 (.200 winning percentage). The three teams in California currently have a cumulative record of 13-14 (.482 winning percentage). Clearly, California is better than Florida.

Keep an eye on Miami, as they're the Chargers' next opponent. Use tonight's game as a sort of scouting session for next week.

Yesterday, the unthinkable happened: the Jacksonville Jaguars won a game. That leaves the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the only team in the NFL yet to win a game. Up until yesterday, 67% of the NFL teams in Florida had yet to win a game through 8 games. Ouch.

Can Tampa Bay keep up with Jacksonville and win their first game of the season tonight? Can Miami get back above .500 with a win tonight? We'll just have to watch the game to find out.
