2022 NFL Power Rankings: Jacksonville Jaguars

Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 18 roundup for the Jacksonville Jaguars in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 11

Regular season in five words or fewer: Doing a 180

At the end of October, the Jaguars were 2-6 after losing five consecutive games, two of which came against the Texans and Broncos. But since then? They're 6-2 and have a chance to win the AFC South for just the second time in franchise history by beating the Titans on Saturday. Trevor Lawrence's play has been the main catalyst for the turnaround. He leads the NFL in completion percentage (70.5), is second in passer rating (106) and has thrown for 2,061 yards with 14 TD passes and two interceptions in the eight games.

NFL.com -- Rank: 8

The Jaguars kept the train rolling in the most efficient way possible, jumping out to an early lead over the lowly Texans before coasting to a 31-3 win ahead of Saturday night's AFC South-deciding showdown with the Titans. It couldn't have played out better for Doug Pederson, who was able to pull Trevor Lawrence and other key players from the lineup in the second half. A win over the free-falling Titans will give the Jaguars just the second AFC South title in franchise history. If they handle their business on Saturday night, the Jags profile as a potential underdog berserker in the AFC playoffs. One step at a time, of course.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 11

They face a win-to-get-in game against the Titans this week. They have been rolling lately, but the Titans won't be an easy out - no matter who is on the field.

USA Today -- Rank: 7

Yes, this feels like high cotton for a team that's 8-8 and likely won't reach postseason if it loses to Tennessee on Saturday. But Jacksonville has won four in a row and six of eight and is certainly performing like it's in the league's top quartile.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 9

The Jaguars won division titles in 1998, 1999 and 2017. That's one division championship over the past 22 seasons. Saturday night, when the Jaguars can win the AFC South by beating the Titans, is a huge moment for the franchise that hasn't had a lot of success but now has Trevor Lawrence and an exciting future.
