Power Rankings: No. 15 New York Jets

October, 22, 2013
A weekly examination of the Jets' ESPN.com Power Ranking:

Preseason: 32 | Last Week: 20 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002

Welcome to respectability.

The Jets jumped five spots with their dramatic and bizarre win over the New England Patriots, moving into -- are you ready for this? -- the top half of the rankings for the first time this season. A No. 15 ranking means they're considered on the periphery of playoff contention, something not many folks envisioned at the start of the season.

The next two weeks will tell us a lot about the Jets, as they face the Cincinnati Bengals (No. 7) and New Orleans Saints (No. 5). Starting to get interesting, isn't it?
