The New York Jets are No. 10 and the New York Giants No. 12 in the Week 15 NFL Power Rankings from Real Clear Sports. RCS aggregates the rankings from eight popular Internet sports sites, including SB Nation and ESPN, to come up with its rankings.
The Jets (8-5) have now won three straight and would earn one of the two AFC wild-card berths if the playoffs began now. The Jets received ninth, 10th and 11th-place rankings from all eight sites to place two spots above the Giants.
At 7-6, the Giants lead the NFC East by tie-breaker over the Dallas Cowboys, also 7-6. The Giants received 11th and 12th-place rankings from seven of the eight services used. The Sagarin Rankings had the Giants 17th, while rating the Cowboys two spots ahead of them. Needless to say, that makes little to no sense.
