Jacksonville Jaguars Week 11 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: 30.8 (31st)
  • Best ranking: 30th (USA Today)
  • Worst ranking: 31st (Multiple)

Below you will find a Week 11 roundup for the Jaguars in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 31

Give them credit for battling Green Bay and playing with enthusiasm. The Jaguars' last two losses have come by a total of six points. They get the Steelers in Week 11 and have the second-toughest remaining schedule, according to Football Outsiders.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 31

They played decent football at Green Bay, but didn't win. That's a good thing for draft position and it means some young players are getting better.

USA Today -- Rank: 30

They gave a good account of themselves at Green Bay against the NFC's current No. 1 seed. Next up for the Jags? Pittsburgh, the AFC's current No. 1 seed.

ESPN -- Rank: 31

What would they take back: Not trading up to draft Justin Herbert

The Jaguars might actually be a contender in the AFC South had they moved up to take Herbert, who has thrown for at least 264 yards in seven of his eight games and has 19 TD passes to six INTs. They would have had to give up their second first-round pick -- which they used on edge rusher K'Lavon Chaisson, who has one sack and two QB hits in nine games -- but they had the extra picks to put together a good deal. The Jaguars would have a young core of offensive players with RB James Robinson and WR DJ Chark Jr. around which to build and could be playing meaningful late-season games. -- Mike DiRocco -- Rank: 31

Give Doug Marrone credit: There's very little chance the coach will be around in Jacksonville beyond the 2020 season, but his players continue to fight. On Sunday, the Jaguars went back and forth with the Packers at Lambeau, even managing to take a lead in the fourth quarter. The Jags' defense was unable to hold, and Jake Luton couldn't provide a dramatic finish to save the day. James Robinson, meanwhile, wonders what could have been: He went over 100 yards from scrimmage for the fifth time this season, but he'll remember the two touchdowns wiped away by penalties. That's eight straight losses for the Jags, with the undefeated Steelers on deck.
