The Jacksonville Jaguars are still lingering around the basement of most NFL power rankings, including our own Joel Thorman's at the SB Nation NFL page:
30. Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 29, 0-1): 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.
The Cats didn't move up or down over at ESPN, also coming in at No. 30:
Sure, the loss to the Vikings was tough, but Blaine Gabbert looks better. (John Clayton)
Former Ravens head coach Brian Billick adds to the consensus, putting the Jags at No. 30 over at Fox Sports:
At least Blaine Gabbert is making improvements. He actually looked like an NFL QB on Sunday -- stepping into throws, reading defenses and driving balls into tight windows. For the Jags' sake, let's hope Sunday wasn't the exception to the rule.
NFL.com actually has the Jags higher than any other outlet, at No. 27 and actually moving a notch down after the loss to the Vikings:
Getting Maurice Jones-Drew back was nice, but all eyes remain on Blaine Gabbert's development. Hopefully Gabbert's eyes stay off the pass rush.
