Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Jacksonville Jaguars are 1-3 after their 27-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The loss did not help them at all in the Week 5 power rankings, where the Jaguars rank among the worst teams in the NFL.

In SB Nation's power rankings, Joel Thorman ranks the Jaguars at No. 30, making mention of the lack of offense that the Jaguars have had the last couple of seasons:

The Jags have scored more than 23 points one time since 2010.

In ESPN.com's power rankings, they are ranked No. 30 as well. Analyst John Clayton wonders how the Jaguars couldn't take advantage of a depleted cornerback position against Cincinnati:

How could the Jaguars' receivers not get separation from Bengals when Cincy was down four CBs?

The CBS Sports power rankings have the Jaguars ranked the highest at No. 27. Pete Prisco questioned the offensive playcalling because of shortcomings on the defensive side:

They have to realize that their defense isn't good enough to just line up and play conservatively on offense. Take the training wheels off the offense.

The NFL.com power rankings have the Jaguars ranked at No. 31 with 56 points. They are ahead of the last-place Cleveland Browns by 40 points.
