Bye Week Leaves New York Jets Primed For Second Half Run

3

After all of the hysterics and theatrics of the New York Jets three game losing streak, here is their current situation after 8 weeks of football.

  • Buffalo: 5-2
  • New England: 5-2
  • Jets: 4-3

One game behind both the Patriots and Bills, with two games left against Buffalo and one left against New England, in complete control of their own destiny after an extra week to get healthy and prepared.

Rex Ryan has already talked about the Jets making “their run.” The schedule breaks favorably for them after these two games. There is no reason they shouldn’t win 5 of their next 6 and be 9-4 heading into their final three games. Of course, it is easy to say those kind of things on paper. However, at a minimum the Jets must find a way to split these next two. If they happen to take both, they would assert themselves as the best team in the division.

Can they build off their second half against San Diego, which was their best of the season? A power running game, an improving Mark Sanchez and a defense thriving in Rex Ryan’s creativity is a tough formula to beat. Buffalo has been the darling of the AFC early this season, with everybody enjoying their surprising success. The Jets should be keyed up to smack them in face and remind everybody who should be taken most seriously as a contender in the AFC East.

  1. Joe, if the Jets win both of these games and the Patriots lose to the Giants the team will be 1st in the division and in control of their own destiny.

  2. I think the Jets win both of these games and then its a foot race until week 17 for who wins the division. I would sure like to host a playoff game and maybe even get a BYE week. That would be nice… I would also like to get a rematch vs the Ravens at some point in the playoffs.

  3. i prefer to let the games speak for themselves.sports as whole has no logic to it.the so call better team dont always win.
