The New York Jets were much more the team we saw week 1-4 today, than the disgrace we saw in San Diego last Sunday. They hung with the Denver Broncos until the final minutes, ultimately losing 31-17 (thanks to a late pick six for the cover). There were positives and progress in some areas but this remains a team staring down the barrel at 1-6 with a short week to prepare for New England. Nobody wants to hear about moral victories in October but with the playoffs a remote possibility, the Jets will be playing for plenty of moral victories in the coming months…so get used it. Many will look to pin today on an individual scapegoat, which is lazy. This was a team loss in a competitive game to a top three team in the NFL.
After Mike Florio had his best week of the season in Week 5, I thought about switching it up and finding a different horrible FOOTBALL GUY to fade for this week. The #FadeFlorio campaign hit a temporary snag as Mr. PFT went a very healthy 8-6-1 against the spread, while I stumbled with a 7-7-1 record and an atrocious 1-4 with my Best Bets. To make matters even worse, I lost my first teaser of the season, which sucked.
