2021 NFL Power Rankings: Jacksonville Jaguars

Throughout the 2021 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 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

Top rookie: QB Trevor Lawrence

Lawrence threw for 332 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in his NFL debut. He dealt with six dropped passes, but was wild on some other throws, too. The bulk of his yards came after the Jaguars fell behind by 20 points late in the first half. He made some really good throws on the TD passes to tight end Chris Manhertz and wide receiver DJ Chark Jr. Lawrence clearly has the goods, but there are areas for improvement. -- Mike DiRocco

NFL.com -- Rank: 32

Trevor Lawrence and Urban Meyer are not accustomed to losing. That might be about to change after what we witnessed on Sunday in Houston. The 2021 Jags looked a lot like the 2020 version that ended the season on a 15-game losing streak. Turnovers, penalties, mental lapses -- it all added up to a 37-21 loss to a Texans team that figures to be one of the worst squads in football. And if that's the case, where does that leave Jacksonville after Week 1? The Jaguars can only go up from here.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 32

That was a terrible showing at Houston. The defense is terrible and the offense didn't come close to doing enough. Urban Meyer has a lot of work to do.

USA Today -- Rank: 32

[Air horn sounds.] Better hydrate, Coach Meyer, looks like it's going to be a long -- very long -- season up here in the big leagues.

The Athletic -- Rank: 32

Overreaction: Why exactly was a 1-15 team a three-point favorite on the road? The convincing extent of this loss, combined with USC firing Clay Helton, made for easy Urban Meyer jokes, but this will be a test of his patience. Trevor Lawrence, who had entire seasons at Clemson with four and five interceptions, had three in his debut. How will two guys so used to dominating in college handle the weekly struggle that their 2021 season will likely be? -- Auman

Reality check: So, which defensive player should the Jags take with the No. 1 pick in the 2022 draft? -- Jones
