This week’s NFL power rankings have consistency. The Jets rank 23rd in most of them. The outliers are SB Nation ranking them 21st and Bleacher Report putting them 24th. Check out the rankings below.

For a team that wasn't supposed to have much of a vertical offense this season, the Jets are really airing it out. On passes thrown 30 or more yards past the line of scrimmage, they've completed 50 percent of attempts with five touchdowns, both tied for most in the NFL.

Josh McCown probably has clinched a job as the Jets’ starting quarterback to start the 2018 season. He has 2,549 yards, 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions with a 95.3 passer rating. He has been one of the best stories in the NFL this season and has been a top-15 quarterback, as crazy as that sounds. He’ll be 39 years old next season and the Jets surely have to look for a quarterback of the future, but McCown deserves to start until that young quarterback is ready.

Is it too late to go back to tanking the season? The Jets have played far better than expected. But that still puts them far away from a playoff berth, and now there’s room to wonder if their first-round pick will be lofty enough to land them one of the draft’s coveted QBs.
