Jacksonville Jaguars Week 16 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

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 Jacksonville Jaguars rank in terms of average, best and worst:

  • Average ranking: 32.0 (32nd)
  • Best ranking: 32nd (Multiple)
  • Worst ranking: 32nd (Multiple)

Below you will find a Week 16 roundup for the Jaguars in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 32

Wish: Trevor Lawrence. With the Jets' win in Week 15, the Jaguars are positioned to land Lawrence with the top pick. From Gardner Minshew to Jake Luton to Mike Glennon, this season has not been fun for Jags fans. Jacksonville has won six or fewer games in nine of 10 seasons. Landing Lawrence could be a franchise-changing addition.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 32

Don't do it. Don't win a game. Don't ruin the chance to land Trevor Lawrence. It's just not worth it.

USA Today -- Rank: 32

It's only about six hours from Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence's Cartersville, Ga., home to Jacksonville ... though slightly further to London. Get your passport ready, buddy.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

Most underrated star: P Logan Cooke

The Jaguars are 1-13, so I'm taking some liberty with "success" here, but Cooke has become one of the league's better punters. His 43.4-yard net punt average is sixth, and he has put 11 punts inside the 10-yard line. Essentially, he's making opposing offenses work a little harder to average 30.2 points per game against the Jaguars' defense. -- Mike DiRocco -- Rank: 32

The Jaguars won by losing on Sunday. The Ravens blasted Doug Marrone's team into orbit in a 40-14 loss, but when Jacksonville returned to Earth they learned that the Jets had shocked the Rams for their first win of the season. Both teams are now 1-13, with Jacksonville holding the all-important strength of schedule tiebreaker. Two more losses and the Jags will hold the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Gardner Minshew did his usual thing against the Ravens, putting up pretty-looking stats in a blowout loss. In a weird twist of fate, many Jags fans will be rooting against their mustachioed folk hero this week against the Bears.
