Did Jets' win send Trevor Lawrence to Jaguars?

The New York Jets finally won a game on Sunday, but it wasn't a win many Jets fans are celebrating.

That's because with their 23-20 upset over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15, the Jets suddenly don't have the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. The Jacksonville Jaguars took that spot with their blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Time for Pats to monitor 2021 NFL Draft order after loss to Dolphins

Both the Jets and Jaguars now are 1-13 on the season, though Jacksonville currently has the No. 1 pick due to a strength-of-schedule tiebreaker. So if the season were to end today, Clemson superstar quarterback Trevor Lawrence likely would be headed to the Jaguars.

There are still two weeks remaining in the 2020 NFL season, however, which means all eyes will be on the Jets and Jaguars for the Trevor Lawrence Sweepstakes. Here's what the remaining two games look like for New York and Jacksonville:

New York Jets

Week 16: vs. Cleveland Browns

It'd be a stunner if the Jets fell to Baker Mayfield and the Browns next week, but then again, the Jets apparently have decided to beat good teams now. So it's impossible to know what to expect.

We'd predict a loss here, but who knows after what we just witnessed in Los Angeles.

Week 17: at New England Patriots

The Patriots' playoff hopes were dashed on Sunday, but they could still put the finishing touch on their season by spoiling the Jets' chances of getting the No. 1 pick. New England did almost lose to New York back in Week 9, after all.

 

Jacksonville Jaguars

Week 16: vs. Chicago Bears

The Bears are still in the playoff hunt, so they'll be looking to blow the doors off the Jaguars in Week 16. With Trevor Lawrence in their sights, the Jags probably will be content in letting them do just that.

Week 17: at Indianapolis Colts

The Jaguars' lone win this season came back in Week 1 against, you guessed it, the Colts. Will they repeat their efforts in Week 17? We highly doubt it.

If the Jets do indeed miss out on Lawrence, they could still choose a rock-solid quarterback at No. 2 overall. Ohio State's Justin Fields and BYU's Zach Wilson are names to keep an eye on at that spot.
