As Jerry says when he buys Marty Seinfeld a "No. 1 Dad" T-shirt, I don't know how official any of these rankings really are. Still, ESPN has released it's initial ranking of all 32 NFL teams at this point. The top eight have not yet been announced, but Patriots fans already know where their team stands.

At No. 9.

Here are the rankings to this point:

32. St Louis Rams
31. Buffalo Bills
30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
29. Cleveland Browns
28. Detroit Lions
27. Kansas City Chiefs
26. Jacksonville Jaguars
25. Oakland Raiders
24. Seattle Seahawks
23. Denver Broncos
22. Chicago Bears
21. Arizona Cardinals
20. Carolina Panthers
19. Tennessee Titans
18. Washington Redskins
17. San Francisco 49ers
16. Pittsburgh Steelers
15. Philadelphia Eagles
14. New York Giants
13. Cincinnati Bengals
12. Houston Texans
11. Miami Dolphins
10. Atlanta Falcons
9. New England Patriots

No Jets on that list. That means they're somewhere in the top eight.
