NFL Power Rankings: The ‘better than we thought but still not good enough’ tier

The Jacksonville Jaguars were a team that was thought to have the pieces in place to find success. Despite a Week 1 loss, they won versus the Indianapolis Colts and Los Angeles Chargers, but they also suffered a close loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Just four weeks into the NFL season, the Jaguars were a very impressive 2-2 team. Now, they seemingly can’t buy a win. At times, it feels like the Jaguars are cursed. Then again, Lawrence may just need a little more time to hit his stride as his supporting cast has already been ever-changing.

team. 58. . 4-4. Previous: 31st. Washington Commanders. 25

The Washington Commanders aren’t just battling the other teams they face. They’ve been challenged by ownership issues hanging over them. With that being said, one has to be impressed by their 4-4 record.

Taylor Heinicke has looked better than Carson Wentz did. The defense is still this team’s strength. They’re tied for ninth place in sacks. They’re holding opponents to 21.5 points per game. The league average of 21.9.

If this team can ever find some offensive consistency, they’re going to be good for a long time. For now, they’re the fourth-best team in what’s been an impressive NFC East division.
