New York Jets Week 13 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 New York Jets 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 13 roundup for the Jets in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 32

Below expectations: It's been a complete train wreck from day one with Adam Gase. The Jets are 0-11 with a league-worst minus-170 point differential. At this point, the best thing Gase can do for Jets fans is ensure they finish with the top overall pick.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 32

With their remaining schedule, it's hard to believe they will win a game. The progress they seemed to be making went away against the Dolphins.

USA Today -- Rank: 32

Adam Gase may have (immediate) future as a comedian, revealing he didn't want to talk about winless team's play-calling collaborations so as not to put the NYJ at a "competitive disadvantage." LOL.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

Most important game remaining: Week 17 at New England

There's a good chance the Jets will be 0-15, which sets up a fascinating angle if the Patriots are eliminated: Would Bill Belichick want to beat the Jets to hand them the dreaded 0-16, or would he be better served with a loss if it costs the Jets a shot at Trevor Lawrence? Belichick certainly doesn't want to see the Clemson star and presumptive No. 1 pick in the division for the next 10-plus years. This could be the game no one wants to win. -- Rich Cimini -- Rank: 32

The Jets were easily beaten again on Sunday -- this time a 20-3 loss to the Dolphins -- and after the game, Adam Gase appeared to get caught in a lie when asked who was calling plays. This is what passes for a dramatic subplot for these Jets, who have five more chances to avoid becoming the third team in NFL history to go 0-16. It's difficult to understand why New York continues to employ Gase, especially while other downtrodden teams dismiss coaches and prep their respective relaunches. Perhaps Gase is still around precisely because of his inability to win games. After all, an 0-16 season sets the franchise up far better in the long-term than 2-14 or 3-13 would. In a way, keeping Gase in the building until the bitter end is the worst punishment management could hand down.
