Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Jaguars in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
The Athletic -- Rank: 31
Cornerback C.J. Henderson (ninth overall) has missed time with a groin injury, but he started eight games. Henderson was up and down overall and went through the normal rookie growing pains but definitely flashed upside. Edge defender K'Lavon Chaisson (20th) has shown improvement after a slow start and has five QB hits in the last two games. After their loss to the Titans, the Jaguars are one game behind the Jets for the top pick in 2021.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 31
The quarterback situation is a mess - at least until next year. Three more games until changes are coming.
USA Today -- Rank: 31
There's a rich history of terrible J-A-G-S football, but this is the first JAX team to lose 12 in a row in one season ... so, at least they're historic.
ESPN -- Rank: 31
The Jaguars have started three quarterbacks at least three games each, which contributes to their having five games with fewer than 300 yards of offense. The lone bright spot on offense is running back James Robinson, who became the fourth undrafted rookie in NFL history to rush for more than 1,000 yards. Unfortunately, that hasn't helped the team win. The pass rush is anemic (16 sacks), DE Josh Allen (2.5 sacks) has had a disappointing season and is now on IR, and injuries have decimated the secondary (at one point, the Jaguars were down four of their top five corners). That the special teams are ranked in the top 10 despite using six kickers is surprising. -- Mike DiRocco
NFL.com -- Rank: 31
Derrick Henry ran over and through the Jaguars' porous defense in Jacksonville's 31-10 loss, which extended the team's losing streak to 12 games. No surprise there. More surprising was the fact that Mike Glennon was continuing to start over Gardner Minshew, but that's no longer the case. Doug Marrone announced Monday that Minshew will get his starting job back ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Ravens. If nothing else, Marrone has helped the incoming regime sort out its quarterback room. Rookie Jake Luton didn't look like he could play in a three-game audition. Glennon was as mediocre as ever in his limited run. And so we come full circle back to Minshew, the QB responsible for Jacksonville's lone victory this season.
