Jets Officially Eliminated from Playoff Contention
The Jets’ collapse is official. Once 8-3 after a victory over the previously undefeated Titans, the Jets have officially been eliminated from playoff contention. Any hopes the Jets had of claiming the final wild card slot in the playoffs were dashed minutes ago as the Ravens defeated the Jaguars 27-7.
If the Dolphins hold on to defeat the Jets, Miami will complete their improbable turnaround and win the AFC East. The Dolphins victory also assures that the Patriots will miss the playoffs despite finishing the season with an 11-5 record.
