A week after the Jets and Jaguars both almost got wins, the worst teams in the league were back on track to a certain degree in Week 14. Both teams lost in fairly decisive fashion, with the Seahawks running away from New York in the second quarter and the Titans running away from Jacksonville in the third quarter.
With three weeks remaining, the Jets sit at 0-13 and the Jaguars sit at 1-12. They remain atop the 2021 NFL Draft order, and it’s had to see anybody else moving ahead of both teams. The Bengals lost to the Cowboys to drop to 2-10-1 and that tie looms large. If they lose out, the worst they can finish is 2-13-1, which means to get the No. 1 pick they would need the Jets and Jaguars both to finish no worse than 3-13. Even just to move ahead of Jacksonville for the No. 2 pick would mean the Jaguars winning two of their final three games. The top two is effectively set, even if neither has clinched the top spot.
It’s hard to see either the Jets or Jaguars winning in Week 15. New York is traveling west to face the Rams, while Jacksonville is traveling north to face the Ravens. Even with Baltimore coming in on a short week, it’d be a shocker if the Jaguars sprung the upset.
Here’s the draft order for the top nine teams, which includes all teams with four wins or less. SOS serves as the tiebreaker and comes via Tankathon.
