NFL power rankings 2017, Week 17: Jets continue to slide

New, comments
NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

It comes as little surprise that another Jets loss did not help them move in the right direction in power rankings.

At first it looked like New York would finish well beyond (the projected) 3.5 wins, starting the season 3-2. The team is just 2-8 since then, tied for the third-worst record since Week 6. Put it all together, though, and you still have a team exceeding expectations.

The Jets have five more wins than many thought they’d have this season. But is that enough for Todd Bowles to stay?

I wouldn't change much about the New York Jets in the offseason if I were in charge. New York is very close to being a really good team; the Jets just have to find their franchise quarterback.

Whether it's through the draft or free agency, New York needs to find a legit starting quarterback. They also need another receiver to help boost the pass game.

There is a lot of young talent on this Jets team. Todd Bowles has done an outstanding job coaching up that talent and delivering a season that far exceeded the low expectations of the summer. I won't be shocked at all if the Jets are in the playoff conversation next year.
