NFL Power Rankings: Jaguars Considered Among The League's Worst

Are the Jacksonville Jaguars the worst team in the NFL? There isn't a consensus among the top NFL power rankings, but they're certainly among a three-team group that includes the Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders. SB Nation's NFL power rankings have the Jags as the worst in the NFL, with little hope in sight:

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 30, 0-2): I don't know where their wins are going to come from.

NFL.com has the Jags at No. 30, above 0-2 cellar mates Cleveland and Oakland:

This show is never going to get on the road unless Jacksonville's outside playmakers actually start making plays and the defense generates a pass rush. Both issues have been the hallmark of the Gene Smith era as general manager. In Sunday's loss to Houston, the Jags defense went sack-less and the offense produced just over 50 net yards passing. Fifty yards.

Former Ravens head coach Brian Billick isn't as kind over at Fox Sports, dropping the Jags two spots to dead last:

So much for the offseason development of Blaine Gabbert. The Jags had a net of just 117 yards of offense … the worst offensive output in franchise history. And with the way this team struggled last year, that is saying a lot!

ESPN splits the difference of NFL.com and Fox, placing Jacksonville between the Raiders and Browns at No. 31:

Blaine Gabbert took a step backward Sunday in a bad performance against the Texans.
