Week 2 NFL Power Rankings: Jaguars Are No. 30

The Jacksonville Jaguars lost a thrilling Week 1 game in overtime against Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings, in a game that very few thought the Jaguars would win.

The consequences of that loss (well, besides an 0-1 start)? A one-spot drop in SB Nation's Week 2 NFL power rankings. Jacksonville fell from No. 29 to No. 30 after losing to Minnesota.

If the Vikings miss that field goal at the end of regulation, then the Jaguars are ranked 24th in our power rankings, like the Vikings are.

And yes, as advertised, the Vikings are the No. 24 team in the power rankings.

Adrian Peterson is back, which means I can take Minnesota out of the running for the No. 1 overall pick next year.

Elsewhere in the AFC South, the Texans are No. 4, the Colts are No. 21 and the Titans are No. 22.

Jacksonville will play host to the Texans in Week 2, and an upset win could certainly vault the Jags up the rankings next week.
