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 9 roundup for the Jets in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 32

How about a positive for them this week? Quinnen Williams appears to be making the second-year leap. He is fifth in pass rush win rate and second in run stop win rate. Between Williams and left tackle Mekhi Becton, Jets fans at least have a couple players to be excited about.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 32

They are halfway to a winless season. What are the odds they get there? Good, right?

USA Today -- Rank: 32

Still mired at bottom of this poll, one of their (former) players rockets to the top -- ILB Avery Williamson traded to Pittsburgh on Monday.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

Reason for optimism: OT Mekhi Becton

Let's face it, there's not a lot of good around the Jets these days, but Becton deserves recognition because he has exceeded expectations, which is hard to do when you're the 11th overall pick. Showing no growing pains, the massive left tackle has demonstrated the skill, technique and demeanor of a potential great. He is a violent blocker with the ability to toss 300-pound defenders. The only negative is that he missed two games with a shoulder injury, but he has recovered. There aren't many bright spots for the winless Jets; Becton is the brightest. -- Rich Cimini

NFL.com -- Rank: 32

"I'm doing this job to win, not to go out there and get my face stomped in, just like all the rest of these guys in the locker room." Adam Gase, folks. You know things are terrible when the opposing quarterback throws for 400 yards and five touchdowns, and you come out of the game thinking it could have gone worse. Sam Darnold, meanwhile, is sitting on three touchdown passes at the season's halfway point. Darnold has a hundred different things working against him, but he has undeniably regressed in his third season. As the Jets free-fall toward the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, it's looking more and more likely the team starts over at quarterback. Again.
