Week 7 NFL Power Rankings: Looking Through the Results

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Here are how some of the big media outlets rate the Jets relative to the rest of the league going into Week 7. Brian Billick really wants you to know that he called their four-game losing streak that hasn't happened yet.

SB Nation (Ryan Van Bibber): 20 (-2)

Just when the NYC tabloids crown you, someone knocks it off your head. I'm moderately surprised there haven't been calls today for Geno Smith's head on a platter from those same outlets. The New York Post was too busy trolling Adrian Peterson with racist columns, I suppose. At any rate, it was a rough outing for the rookie. He was a woeful 6-for-14 on passes 10 yards or more down the field, per Pro Football Focus. That includes a third-quarter interception that boosted the Steelers' win probability past the 80 percent mark, where it stayed for the rest of the game.

ESPN: 20 (-2)

One step forward, one step back for Geno Smith. A week after a three-touchdown performance and game-winning drive in Atlanta, Smith threw two interceptions and managed six points against the Steelers.

FOX Sports (Brian Billick): 19 (-1)

I have said all along that the Jets would be lucky to make it to their bye week with a 3-6 record. There next three games are all against division leaders -- the Patriots, Bengals and Saints. I'm sticking to my prediction.

Yahoo! (Shutdown Corner): 20 (-3)

Heading into this week's game against New England, Rex Ryan mentioned a 2009 home game against the Patriots and said, "If you make it like that, we're gonna beat this team." Probably not, but thank goodness swag-tacular Rex is back.

CBS (Pete Prisco): 18 (-3)

When Geno Smith makes mistakes, they aren't good enough to win. It's that simple.

CBS (Pat Kirwan): 19 (+4)

The ups and downs of a team with a rookie quarterback. The Jet defense will keep them in games but usually they will have to win the games with turnovers and scoring.

New York Daily News: 19 (-3)

Win, lose. Win, lose. Win, lose. Hello Pats.

Where do you think the Jets should rank?
