Jets Stay in Trevor Lawrence Pole Position Over Jags In Wild Witching Hour

The Jets won decisively by dramatically losing against the Raiders today. Because they gave up this bomb touchdown from Derek Carr to Henry Ruggs Jr., they are 0-11 and remain in pole position for the first overall pick — generational talent Trevor Lawrence.

The Jags, meanwhile, lost in overtime against the Vikings. If the Jets had won, both teams would have had 1-11 records — and the Jags would have the tiebreaker. The tiebreaker is based on which team’s opponents have a worse winning percentage — here’s where that stands in favor of Jacksonville:

What a wild witching hour in the NFL. Jets fans have to be ecstatic about losing the way they did.

      • If I am Lawrence’s dad I’m showing him 3 pieces of data to help make a decision.

        1. The replay of Joe Burrow getting his knee caved in behind a garbage line.
        2. Sam Darnold being drafted as the #3 pick for the Jets in 2018.
        3. New York’s state income tax rate.

        The Jets just drafted a franchise QB in 2018 for crying out loud, and they don’t deserve to ruin two in 4 years.
