They churned out remarkable 323 rushing yards Sunday. Over first four weeks? They had just 352 yards – total – from the ground troops.

25. New York Jets (1-3) ( last week: 30)

It was a great Sunday for rookie QBs. Sam Darnold did his part with a three-TD, one-interception performance in the triumph over the Broncos at the Meadowlands.

Rest-of-season SOS ranking: 24th.The Jets’ toughest remaining game will be in Week 17 in New England, where they have a 17 percent chance to beat the Patriots, according to FPI. The Jets have lost nine straight regular-season meetings at New England, their longest road losing streak against a single opponent in the Super Bowl era.
