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 7 roundup for the Jaguars in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 29

Trevor Lawrence's marked improvement over the course of the first six weeks has the Jaguars' arrow pointing slightly up. Lawrence's Total QBR and completion rate jumped significantly from Weeks 1 to 3 (22.4, 54.2%) to Weeks 4 to 6 (56.4, 66.3%), and his turnovers dropped from nine to two. The Jaguars had a chance to beat Cincinnati on the road too. There are still big issues on defense, but Lawrence's progress and the increased use of running back James Robinson create some optimism. -- Mike DiRocco

NFL.com -- Rank: 28

The Jaguars badly needed something good to happen to their season. Thanks to a kicker who was signed to the practice squad late last month, Jacksonville snapped a 20-game losing skid and hit the bye with some much-needed optimism. The hero was Matthew Wright, whose 53-yard field goal as time expired gave the Jags a 23-20 victory over the Dolphins in London. It was the performance of a lifetime for Wright, who drilled a 54-yarder to tie the game earlier in the fourth quarter. "I think he was telling me he was like a software engineer like a month and a half ago," Trevor Lawrence said. "... Just crazy, you can't even make it up."

CBS Sports -- Rank: 28

Urban Meyer and Trevor Lawrence got their first NFL victory last week, which has to feel good going into the bye. Lawrence is growing as a quarterback each week.

USA Today -- Rank: 28

The Jags are 4-4 (.500) in the United Kingdom ... and 174-240 (.420) in the United States. London calling, Mr. Khan?

The Athletic -- Rank: 30

Rookie Heat Check: At last, the No. 1 pick has his first NFL win. Trevor Lawrence led a game-winning drive Sunday vs. Miami, and we can only hope for Lawrence's sake it won't be his only win of the season. He's shown admirable poise and leadership during the first losing streak of his life, and we want to see if his coaches (cough, Urban Meyer) can do a better job of helping him flourish.
