One week remains in the 2018 NFL regular season. While some lucky teams are preparing for meaningful Week 17 contests, the Jets are among the teams focused on Draft position.

Santa and/or the Oakland Raiders gave the Jets a Christmas gift on Monday. Oakland’s victory over the Denver Broncos on Christmas Eve moved the Jets back into the third slot in the 2019 NFL Draft. That is where the Jets ended Week 15. New York had dropped to fourth after Sunday’s games when the 49ers passed them due to the strength of schedule tiebreaker.

The current order is below.

  1. Arizona 3-12
  2. San Francisco 4-11
  3. Jets 4-11
  4. Oakland 4-11
  5. Detroit 5-10
  6. Tampa Bay 5-10
  7. Buffalo 5-10
  8. Giants 5-10
  9. Jacksonville 5-10
  10. Atlanta 6-9

Week 17 will decide the order for picks 1 through 20. The rest of the order will be determined by postseason results.

The Jets still have a slight chance to claim the top overall pick.
