Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Jets in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
The Athletic -- Rank: 32
Left tackle Mekhi Becton has been one of their few bright spots. The Jets took Becton with the 11th overall pick, and he's looked the part in 10 starts as a rookie. Adam Gase's team was not competitive in a 40-3 loss to Seattle and is three games away from a winless season.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 32
Three more losses and it's a winless season. Will it happen? You bet.
USA Today -- Rank: 32
There's a rich history of terrible J-E-T-S football, but this is the first NYJ team to lose 13 in a row ... so, at least they're historic.
ESPN -- Rank: 32
Nothing has gone right. Oh, sure, they're ranked highly in special teams, but that rings hollow after a game in which Sergio Castillo missed three field goals in one quarter. The Jets aren't just bad -- they're historically bad. Their point differential is minus-210, second worst in team history. The worst is minus-214, set by the 1976 Jets in a 14-game season. That mark should be obliterated on Sunday, when the Jets face the Rams. -- Rich Cimini
NFL.com -- Rank: 32
The Jets got their heart ripped out by the Raiders in Week 13. Perhaps it stands to reason then that they played like a team without a pulse in Sunday's 40-3 loss to the Seahawks. Russell Wilson picked apart interim coordinator Frank Bush's defense like the six-time Pro Bowler was playing against the scout team, tossing four touchdown passes to barely covered receivers before being lifted late in the third quarter. The Jets' offense matched the defense in ineptitude, managing three points against the league's 31st-ranked defense entering Sunday. Sergio Castillo didn't exactly stoke his team's competitive spirits with three missed field goals in the second quarter. (UPDATE: The Jets released Castillo on Tuesday.) The fate of becoming the NFL's third 0-16 team is starting to feel less like a possibility and more like destiny.
