The New York Jets offense lost to itself in Miami Sunday to drop the Jets record to 3-6 on the season. One wonders when the team will snap out of this Long nightmare. This week’s NFL power rankings surprisingly reflect no change across the board.
Jets: 25 (last week: 25)
25. Jets (last week: 25)
Shake it off, Sam. Joe Namath threw at least 27 interceptions in three different seasons ... not to suggest you have THAT kind of leeway.
27. New York Jets (last week: 27)
No, Sam Darnold is not playing well at all. The four-interception performance against the Dolphins was horrendous. But the Jets absolutely should not sit him. This is part of the deal when you commit to a rookie QB.
27. New York Jets (last week 27)
The Jets are slightly ahead of their preseason ranking, but that’s not saying much. The reality is, they’ve played a notch below expectations, which got bumped up after a dominating Week 1 win in Detroit. The reason: Sam Darnold’s growing pains are more acute than anyone could’ve imagined (league-leading 14 interceptions).
With the obvious proviso that power rankings are stupid, unless they praise the Jets, in which case they’re awesome, what do you think? Where should the Jets rank in the NFL power rankings?
