2020 NFL Power Rankings: Jacksonville Jaguars

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Jacksonville Jaguars rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 2 roundup for the Jaguars in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 29

What we learned: Cornerback C.J. Henderson is NFL-ready. He might have had the most impressive game for any defensive player in Week 1. The rookie from Florida was everywhere in the Jaguars upset win, finishing with five tackles, three pass breakups and an interception. He trapped Rivers into an interception in the second, forced a couple game-saving incompletions against Hilton and was physical against the run. Henderson had a shortened offseason to learn the Jaguars scheme, was going up against a very good receiver and a veteran quarterback, and he showed up in a big way. Phenomenal debut for the ninth overall pick.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 27

Tanking for Trevor doesn't seem like a real thing now after their impressive opener. They are not going to be a pushover for anybody.

USA Today -- Rank: 26

Nineteen of 20, including three TD passes -- while engineering Week 1 upset? Why would you want anything but Minshew Mania in #DUUUVAL?

ESPN -- Rank: 27

Best rookie debut: CB CJ Henderson
RB James Robinson and WR Laviska Shenault get honorable mentions, but Henderson shined in his NFL debut. His second-quarter interception set up a game-tying TD and he also broke up Philip Rivers' fourth-down pass to T.Y. Hilton with less than a minute to play to seal the Jaguars' 27-20 upset. One of the questions about Henderson coming out of Florida was his willingness to be physical and his tackling skills. He showed that wasn't an issue against the Colts with five tackles, one of which stopped Parris Campbell a yard shy of a first down on a third-down play. -- Mike DiRocco

NFL.com -- Rank: 29

Tank this. The Jaguars welcomed a supposed AFC contender into their building on Sunday and stunned a world of doubters. The 27-20 win over the Colts featured opportunistic play by the defense (two key interceptions) and beautifully efficient play by Gardner Minshew, who finished the day 19 of 20 for 173 yards and three scores. Minshew spread the ball around to 10 different Jaguars receivers and played under control, while his counterpart, Philip Rivers, forced the action. Could Minshew actually play himself into a long-term future with Jacksonville as the starter? String together a few more games like this and he just might.
