Jets’ Division Hopes Dashed
The Patriots have defeated the Bills 13-0, meaning any hopes the Jets had of grabbing the AFC East title are now shattered. The Jets are left only in contention for the AFC’s final wild-card spot. They can clinch the wild card with a victory over the Dolphins and a Jaguars victory over the Ravens.
If the Dolphins defeat the Jets today, Maimi will complete their improbable turnaround from 1-15 one season ago to the division title. A Gang Green win will hand the rival Patriots their sixth-consecutive AFC East title.
Regardless the Jets will be watching either quarterback Chad Pennington or Bill Belichick celebrate today. That’s not exactly the scenario New York envisioned when they were 8-3 just one month ago.
