NFL Power Rankings: Week 12

32. Detroit Lions (0-10-1)

Week 12 Result: Lost to Chicago 16-14

After settling for a tie two weeks ago, the Lions had their hearts ripped out again in a three-point loss to the Browns. It sounds clich√©, but the Lions are surely better than their 0-10-1 record indicates. They were a field goal away from toppling Cleveland on the road with a QB making his first start. Former UConn Husky Tim Boyle made his first career NFL start on Sunday, and it went about as expected. On Thanksgiving Day, Jared Goff returned to action and lost yet another game. The Lions didn’t enjoy the holiday.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-8)

Week 11 Result: Lost to San Francisco 30-10

After back-to-back strong performance against AFC foes, the Jaguars were brought back down to Earth on Sunday. Urban Meyer’s club were pummeled by the 49ers from start to finish. Jacksonville’s offense failed to generate anything through the air or on the ground. Trevor Lawrence managed just 158 yards with the San Francisco defense in his face throughout the entire game. RB James Robinson was quiet (38 yards on 14 touches) outside of a late-game score. The Jags are in line for another top pick, and it should likely be spent on an offensive lineman to help protect their franchise QB.
