New York Jets: Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#19)

Last week: 23 (+4)

Record: 1-0

The Jets didn’t score a touchdown with their 1st or 2nd team offense all preseason and then they score 48 against the Bills week 1? What the hell? Well, all of their offensive problems are not solved. They may have scored 48, but 14 of those were scored by the defense or special teams and several other scores were helped by great field position as a result of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s ineptitude. Those 48 points don’t tell the whole story. The Jets’ yardage total ranked just 11th in the league last week. Good, but not great. Plus, once the Bills got down big, their defense just quit. Something tells me it’ll be different when they go to Pittsburgh this week. Mark Sanchez is still a quarterback with a mediocre career QB rating throwing to a weak group of receivers, led by a raw 2nd round rookie who will be predictably inconsistent on a week to week basis.
