Power Rankings: Jets still dead last

Admin - October 22, 2020

It doesn't look like there's even a reason to track Jets power rankings anymore, as they are by far the worst team in the league. Adam Gase's circus has now been dead last in all power rankings for four straight weeks. The Jets are 0-6 and on pace to possibly exceed their "accomplishment" of 1996 when they started the season 0-8. The upcoming schedule looks pretty brutal, as the Gang Green will be facing Buffalo, Kansas City and New England in the next three games.

Here's what the power rankings websites had to say about the Jets:

ESPN: Darnold has missed two starts with a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. The offense, struggling even with Darnold, has bottomed out with Joe Flacco. In 25 possessions, Flacco has led the offense to only one touchdown drive. His lack of mobility and general rust have made him a sitting duck behind a leaky offensive line. It looks like Darnold could miss a third start on Sunday against the Bills.

Sporting News: The Jets keep finding new lows as Adam Gase saw his current team shut out by his former team, the Dolphins. At least Le'Veon Bell isn't part of this mess anymore.

CBS Sports: Adam Gase has to be in trouble. This team is a mess and has no prospects of getting better.

ProFootballTalk: Has there ever been a team worse than the 2020 Jets? And why does it feel like it will keep getting worse?

Yahoo Sports: If that’s the effort the Jets are going to give, just stay in New York and forfeit the game. Don’t risk injury or coronavirus exposure.

NFL.com: Another week, another embarrassing three hours for the Jets and their long-suffering fan base. This time it was a 24-0 loss to the Dolphins, New York’s first blanking by their rivals to the south since the 1982 AFC Championship Game. As the losses mount, it gets increasingly more difficult to understand why management isn’t making a move at head coach. Adam Gase is now 30-40 in his career (7-15 with the Jets), with 31 of the 40 losses coming by double digits. The Jets’ margin of defeat this season is 18.3 points, and the offense has produced six touchdowns in six games. Online conspiracy theorists believe the Jets are keeping Gase on to ensure the team gets the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 draft. It’s not the craziest thing we’ve heard.
