There have been rescheduling of many games. It’s been a rough few days for a bunch of division leaders, so there are plenty of changes to the NFL Power Rankings.

Will end a week where games will be played on five different days. By the time you start reading it, there will still be four contests on tap – one pair on Monday and two more on Tuesday.

As for the clubs that hit the field on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, a few of them are at the top or closest to the NFL Power Rankings. It’s safe to say that some disturbance took place.


Jacksonville Jaguars 2-12

Last week: L, 30-16 vs HOU
Final ranking: 30th

Darrell Bevell is the team’s interim head coach after hosting the controversial decision to part ways with Urban Meyer after 13 games. The team hosts rival Texans in a 2-11 team clash.

And the Jaguars will hit a sixth straight as rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence is sacked three times and total fouls in Jacksonville is just 296 yards and one touchdown. Jaguars have also dropped to 0-5 in this year’s classification.

Giants in New York 4-10

Last week: L, 21-6 vs DAL
Final ranking: 28th

The last time the franchise made it to the knockout stages was 2016. Now, the Giants have lost at least 10 games for the fifth straight game after a sloppy loss to the NFC East leading Cowboys.

Mike Glennon is back at center for Joe Judge’s club and he has his problems. He threw just 99 yards, was parried three times, and all day the team never found the final zone. The Giants sacked Dak Prescott three times but also gave up 125 yards.


New York Jets 3-11

Last week: L, 31-24 at MIA
Final ranking: Day 31

The team with the second worst defense in the league in terms of yards allowed and the team that is allowed to have the most points in the NFL looks set to cool off the rejuvenated Miami Dolphins. Robert Saleh’s team took a 10-0 lead in the first half and by the end of the game had overturned Miami three times – including Tua Tagovailoa’s pick of six.

The Dolphins’ defense took control of the Jets’ offensive unit (228 yards in total) and fired Zach Wilson six times.


Houston Texas 3-11

Last week: W, 30-16 at JAC
Final ranking: 32nd

The Texans started the season with a win over the Jaguars, meaning the club are in a position to wipe out their AFC South rivals for the fourth year in a row. Rookie Davis Mills committed the game’s sole revenue through an interception.

But he also threw 209 yards and a couple of touches, both of which scored against Brandin Cooks. He finished with seven catches in 102 yards. All three of Houston’s wins this season are in the group. NFL Power Rankings, Week 16: Colts roll, Cardinals fail
