22. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-6): Jacksonville falls a few spots this week after Sunday's 33-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, a game where Jacksonville truly did not look good in any phase of the game. This was the second straight week where Jacksonville completely failed to show up vs. a division opponent in a big game, and the drumming from the Colts also comes after the Jaguars got their $88 million starting quarterback back on the field in Nick Foles. Foles and the team laid an egg in a huge game, and the Jaguars fall in the rankings because of it.

23. Arizona Cardinals (3-7-1)

24. Chicago Bears (4-6)

25. Detroit Lions (3-6-1)

26. Denver Broncos (3-7)

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-7)

28. Miami Dolphins (2-8)

29. New York Jets (3-7)

30. Washington Redskins (1-9)

31. New York Giants (2-8)

32. Cincinnati Bengals (0-10)

Other Jaguars Rankings

ESPN - #23

"When D.J. Hyden is the nearest defender, slot receivers have caught just eight passes for 107 yards, and QBs targeting slot receivers against Hayden are completing only 44% of their attempts, per NextGen Stats."

CBS - #20

"Getting Nick Foles back did nothing for the offense and the defense was horrible against the Colts. Their season is on the line against the Titans this week."

Bleacher Report - #24

"Jacksonville's playoff aspirations aren't dead. Just two of its six remaining games are against teams with winning records, including the Week 17 rematch with Indianapolis. But given that the Jaguars are 0-5 this year against teams above .500 (lost to Houston twice), the odds of a late run aren't good."

USA Today - #22

"Focus has been on quarterback transition, but what about a defense burned for nearly 60 points and 800 yards over its past two appearances?"
