Nothing has changed thus far, except a couple of the easier games in the second half, may not be so easy now.
Lets look at the rest of the schedule. The Jets now have only 4 of their remaining 10 games at home going forward.
@ Patriots. Winnable but most likely the Jets lose. 3-4
Dolphins Home. Win. 4-4
@ Seattle. Tough place to play, very fast defense. Loss. 4-5
@St. Louis. Jets should win this game. 5-5
Patriots Home. Winnable game, but lets be conservative and say a loss. 5-6
Cardinals Home. Win. Cardinals offense is terrible. 6-6
@ Jacksonville. Win. Can not lose that game. 7-6
@ Tennessee. Winnable, but could go either way, lets stay conservative and say a loss. 7-7
Chargers Home. Tough game, Jets win. 8-7
Bills Home. Must win. 9-7
Obviously this pure speculation and teams can get hot and get cold, as well as injuries, but it is not a stretch to say this team can get to 9-7 and if they win a game they shouldnt be 10-6. It will most certainly come down to a few tie-breakers.
Could go the other way too, I don't really think you can pencil in the Miami and Rams games as "should win" or definite wins. Any team with a good D is going to give the Jets trouble and both those teams can play some D. The last 4 games are pretty favorable. That is where the team needs to make a run. They just need to hang in there over the next 6 games and try to stay at .500.
