The Jets could have made a case for third place in these power rankings prior to Week 10. But after yet another blowout loss, they have to be considered the worst team in the division.

A 45-17 loss to the Bills marked the fourth consecutive disastrous outing from the Jets' defense. The quarterback situation might have overshadowed this to a degree, but the Jets' defense has been historically bad over the last month of so.

They've allowed 175 points over their last four games which are the second-most points allowed in a four-game stretch by any team since the 1970 merger. It's been that bad.

Despite finding some offensive success in recent weeks, the Jets' catastrophic meltdown on the defensive side of the ball has prevented them from even being competitive.

Until they fix their defense, the Jets won't be able to climb these rankings.

The team could see the return of rookie quarterback Zach Wilson in Week 11, a welcomed sight after Mike White's four-interception performance against the Bills.

Wilson's return would breathe a renewed sense of optimism into the fan base, but it won't fix a defense that is performing as bad as any defense in NFL history has right now.

The Jets are firmly in fourth place in the division as of Week 11.
