The New York Jets stopped the rot when they shocked the Los Angeles Rams to claim their first win of the season on Sunday, but they could have lost even more in the process.
Adam Gase’s suffering team ended the talk of a winless season with a 1:13 win in the year. The victory not only prevented the Rams from sealing a playoff spot, but also pushed them out of the top spot in NFC West.
The result, however, means that the Jacksonville Jaguars, who share a fitting record, have now skipped the Jets to # 1 overall in the 2021 draft based on the strength of the schedule.
That puts them in pole position, claiming Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, who is arguably the most respected quarterback candidate since Andrew Luck in 2012, waiting for college.

“Hey, our job is to try to win every week,” said coach Gase.
“I’m just so happy for our guys. They did a great job. It was too long before we could remember what a win almost feels like. It was great to see these guys.” excited.”
Lawrence, who is one of the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy, has thrown 2,753 yards, 22 touchdowns and four interceptions, and scored 211 yards and seven points so far in 2020.
