The last few weeks have seen the Jets in last in most NFL power rankings. They still are quite low in this week’s rankings, but they are no longer rated last in the league.

I picked the Jets to win against the Dolphins, but I didn't think they'd dominate the way they did. However, this Jets defense is strong at all three levels, and we saw that the offense can do some things as well.
Coordinator John Morton comes from the Sean Payton coaching tree, and you can see the influence in his passing schemes. The Jets don't have immense talent on offense, but they do enough to win games when the defense is playing well.
If there's a guy open downfield, Josh McCown can hit him. We saw that on the 69-yard touchdown he threw to Robby Anderson.
The Jets aren't the disaster a lot of people seem to believe they are. New York might not be a playoff contender, but the Jets aren't going to be pushovers on a weekly basis, either.
30. New York Jets (1-2, Last week: 32)
Well maybe they’re not the worst team in football after all. This was a good performance, with quarterback Josh McCown playing well and the defense absolutely dominating the Dolphins. Now they have a somewhat intriguing game against Jacksonville, which will have some post-London fatigue.

The plan to tank the season veered off course with the win over the Dolphins.
