Florham Park, N.J.- With the bye week now behind us, the Jets are set to begin the second half of their season with a chance to claim a share of the division lead. The Jets current 4-3 record has them sitting just one game behind the Patriots and Bills, who just happen to be the Jets next two opponents. If the Jets can win both of these next two games they will find themselves atop the division with seven games left to play and considering that just a few weeks ago the Jets were in a downward spiral losing three straight it’s easy to see why Rex Ryan is so excited at the possibility that they could have the lead in the division two weeks from now.
