Today’s game between the Jets and Titans may seem like a meaningless game between two 2-10 teams, but in reality, this game is actually very significant. What’s at stake? The potential direction of the upcoming NFL Draft.
If the Jets lose (and I am in now way suggesting they should throw the game), they will be set up nicely to have a chance at either Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston, and maybe find a solution to this quarterback conundrum.
If the Jets win, they’ll put themselves in a position to draft either Amari Cooper or one of the top Tackles in the draft in Cedric Ogbuehi or Brandon Scherff.Here is today’s link dump…
