NFP power rankings

A surprising upset win at Atlanta has the Jets moving up the board. Joe Fortenbaugh

While some felt it should have happened sooner thanks to a 2-2 record, the New York Jets jumped 11 spots in the rankings this week thanks to a quality, primetime road win at Atlanta on Monday night. The Falcons may be struggling, but after going 0-2 on the road prior to their Week 5 win—coupled with two home victories over Tampa Bay (0-4) and Buffalo (2-3)—the Jets finally have a signature win under their belt that, in our opinion, warranted the movement north.

The Falcons, on the other hand, continue to plummet.

The numbers in brackets indicate each team’s Power Ranking, which is based on a scale of 1-100. These numbers can be used as a baseline to determine the point spread between any two teams on the list. Keep in mind that these numbers do not account for home field advantage, situational analysis (extra rest, back-to-back road games, divisional rivalries, etc), injuries, weather or public perception. They are merely to be used as a baseline for your initial analysis.
