MNF UPDATE: The Jets almost knocked off the Patriots on Monday Night Football, but a last second Cam Newton drive set up a Nick Folk field goal for the 30-27 win. The Jets remain atop the draft order for another week. We’re down to eight teams with two or fewer wins.

We’re officially through the halfway point of the 2020 NFL regular season. The Patriots will be the last team to get through their eighth game and we’ll be into the back half of the 2020 season.

The Patriots will travel to face the Jets on Monday Night Football, with plenty on the line. New England is looking to get back in the playoff race while New York is looking to maintain their spot atop the 2021 NFL Draft order. The Jets are 0-8 and showing no signs of winning a game anytime soon.

We’ll be tracking draft order throughout the season, and the Jets hold the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. They’re a game up on the Jaguars and a game and a half up on the Cowboys and Giants. Next week, the Jets will have the week off while the Jaguars head to Lambeau to face the Packers. The Giants host the Eagles and the Cowboys have a bye.

Here’s the draft order for the top eight teams, all of whom have two or fewer wins through Week 9. SOS, the tiebreaker, comes via Tankathon.

  1. New York Jets: 0-9, .591
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: 1-7, .554
  3. Dallas Cowboys: 2-7, .473
  4. New York Giants: 2-7, .508
  5. Washington Football Team: 2-6, .466
  6. Los Angeles Chargers: 2-6, .507
  7. Miami Dolphins — from Houston Texans: 2-6, .565
  8. Cincinnati Bengals: 2-5-1, .527
