2020 NFL Power Rankings: New York Jets

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 New York Jets rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 12 roundup for the Jets in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 32

Be thankful for: A chance to escape irrelevancy. No one knows whether Joe Douglas will be able to turn the Jets around, but at the very least he should provide competency, and Douglas will have resources to work with. The Jets will almost definitely have a huge coaching hire to make in the offseason. Jets fans have heard this story before, but there are some pieces in place to get the franchise turned around.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 32

They are at least showing some life in games. That's progress. They have a chance against Miami this week to win one.

USA Today -- Rank: 32

And they're officially the first team eliminated from playoff contention, the one thing the Jets are able to do at the speed of sound.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

What they're thankful for: Bert Bell

Who? The late Eagles co-owner was the driving force behind the creation of the NFL draft in 1936 -- and the draft is the only thing Jets fans can embrace as they endure the worst season in franchise history. The 2021 draft is particularly appealing because it might include a generational quarterback prospect, Clemson's Trevor Lawrence. So as their 0-10 team careens toward the No. 1 overall pick, Jets fans can find solace in knowing there's hope in the future. So, a Thanksgiving toast to Bert Bell, who beats Le'Veon when it comes to impactful Bells for the franchise. -- Rich Cimini

NFL.com -- Rank: 32

"You don't want to go 0-16, especially if this is my last year. I can't go out like that." Those were the words of Frank Gore, who hopes his 16th season in the NFL doesn't end with the Jets becoming the third team in NFL history to lose out over a 16-game season. Gang Green showed a pulse on offense for the second consecutive game, but an undermanned secondary starting three rookies had no answers for Justin Herbert in a 34-28 loss to the Chargers. The Jets remain in pole position for the No. 1 overall pick, but Gore's comments offer another reminder that no one in the New York locker room wants anything to do with 0-16, pro football's version of a scarlet letter.
