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.

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.
