A loss = season is over because:
A. Indianapolis will have 9 wins already
B. Cincinnati/Pittsburgh square off Week 16. If Pittsburgh wins, they'll have 8 wins which will beat the Jets in any tie-breaker and if Cincinnati wins, that's 9 wins for them. Even a tie in this game means Cincinnati would finish no worse than 8-7-1, topping an 8-8 team.
This is pretty much the only realistic scenario for the Jets making the post season:
The Jets and the Bengals finished tied at 9-7 and the Jets win the tie-breaker because of a better mark inside the AFC (7-5, 6-6). The most pivotal games (other than the Jets) would have Dallas beating Pitt this week and Cincy beating Pitt next week.
NYJ Win Out
PITT: L vs. CIN and 1 other Loss to either Dallas or Cleveland
CIN: W @ PIT, L vs. BAL
