No question they could do it.
The problem with your reasoning is that the same held true for the past two games against Miami and Seattle. And the Jets stunk up the house in both games. I'm not saying that it is "impossible" for them to pull it together and make some kind of run. What I am saying is that I have seen ZERO evidence that they are capable of doing so. They've played 9 games and the O has scored 9 TD's against Indy and Buffalo, and only 6 TD's in the other 7 games. I don't care what kind of D they were playing against, that is beyond pitiful.
