NFL Power Rankings: Number 29, New York Jets
The New York Jets and the crosstown New York Giants met one another in the first week of the NFL’s preseason. That one concluded with a 12-7 victory by the guys in green and white, so some of you are probably asking yourselves why the Jets are at 29 and the Giants are the 28th-ranked team right?
The answer is simple. It was a preseason game and had both teams given full effort throughout the duration of all four quarters, this one would have probably led to a much different result. The New York Jets have further to go than the Giants do if they’re going to build a consistent winner, so with that being said, they land one spot behind them.
NFL Power Rankings: Number 28, New York Giants
The Giants, like the Jets, have question marks at the quarterback position, but Big Blue’s questions are asked for a different reason. The Jets are fielding a rookie. The Giants are fielding a veteran, and there are still debates about whether or not he can play.
Big Blue lands a spot ahead of their rivals because, for now, we’re calling it a wash at the quarterback position. The Giants, however, might be the better team at almost every other position.
