Joe Caporoso with 12 predictions for Jets/Bills this Sunday
The New York Jets put together one of their most productive bye weeks in recent memory. By not playing, they tightened their grip on the final playoff spot in the AFC. It sounds comical but it is true. The Tennessee Titans, who hold a tie-breaker over them, lost to the previously win-less Jacksonville Jaguars and then fell again last night to the Indianapolis Colts. At 4-6, with road trips still left to Denver and Indy, they seem to be out of the mix, especially with starting quarterback Jake Locker suffering a season ending injury.

When John Idzik was hired as the New York Jets general manager, local beat writers and national analysts painted him in a dull fashion. Seattle’s “cap guy” was everyone’s favorite description, which completely neglected his vast resume as a former VP of football administration. He was Seattle’s representative at league meetings, oversaw player negotiations and transactions, along with day to day football operations, all for a franchise that has nearly perfected the “rebuilding” phase.
With hopes he could develop a plan to elevate the Jets back into the AFC contender they once were, Woody Johnson hired the “cap guy.” What many have failed to recognize is that the Jets have brought in an architect who is ready to execute his blueprint.

The New York Jets are coming off of their bye week now entering the stretch run in full control of their playoff destiny. Thanks to the Jacksonville Jaguars upset win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 10, the road appears quite easier for Gang Green. With 7 games remaining in the regular season, the Jets schedule becomes much more manageable than it was during the first half of the season as they face only one team with a .500 or better record (the week 15 match up against the Carolina Panthers). Let’s look at the updated playoff picture heading into Week 11.

After Dee Milliner’s performance versus the Saints a week ago, some heralded him as a player who finally overcame the rookie hump to become a solid starter. On the other hand, some fans have stuck with the bust label that they prematurely gave him this season, because his game was somewhat overblown by a few splash plays. Both of these reactions are far too extreme to boast about after we have had such a small exposure to the rookie (only four games).
