The NY Jets have managed to put together consecutive competent offensive performances, although it's seemingly come at the expense of a passable defense.

The Jets' defense has folded in recent weeks and that's what ultimately cost them in their Thursday night loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Week 9 was a wild one for the NFL. The league saw numerous shocking upsets and some high-profile storylines that produced less-than-ideal headlines.

But as for the Jets, their result was about what most expected.

Despite a late-game comeback attempt, the Jets were soundly beaten by a Colts team that ran and passed all over their defense. It was a disappointing showing, one that was compounded by the loss of quarterback Mike White early in the first quarter.

It's impossible to predict where this team will go following this game. But what is clear is that they still rank among the worst teams in the NFL.

With that in mind, how do the NFL teams rank after nine weeks of play? Which teams are rising and which teams are wishing to turn back the clock?

Let's take a look at our NFL power rankings heading into Week 10.
