NFL Power Rankings: Jets Ranked No. 18

SB Nation released its preseason NFL Power Rankings Tuesday, and the New York Jets were ranked No. 18 by NFL editor Joel Thorman. The Jets are the eighth-highest ranked team in the AFC, which is headed by the No. 3 New England Patriots. The Green Bay Packers snagged the ranking's top spot, while the defending Super Bowl champions, New York Giants, came in at No. 2.

Here's what Thorman had to say about the Jets:

18. New York Jets (LW: 19): I can see two scenarios: 1.) A shutdown defense leading them to an 11-win season or 2.) a complete meltdown, five-win season. So we'll put them in the middle of the pack.

For those curious, New York's Week 1 opponent the Buffalo Bills were slotted just a spot ahead of Gang Green at No. 17.

17. Buffalo Bills (LW: 17): Second place in the AFC East looks possible. They will end up with a better record than the team right below them.
