    Question A serious question. Have the Jets ever won 3 division games in a row before?

    I was just thinking about this and I can't remember the Jets ever doing this before.

    Somebody help me out here, have we ever won 3 division games straight (back to back to back) like we just did??

    And don't forget, the last 2 were division road wins which is that much tougher.

    Are you talking 3 consecutive games?

    They mentioned during the telecast it was the first time we started 3-0 in division since 2000. Not sure if thats what you mean or not though.

    Yep just looked it up.

    Our last 3 games in December was against Miami, Buffalo & New England and we won all 3.

    Almost swept the whole division series that year except we lost the 2nd meeting with the Colts by 1 point. That's when the Colts were still in our division of course.

    yes. 1998

    It was the final 3 games (week 15-17 against the Dolphins, Bills, and NE) we won to clinch the Jets' first ever division championship behind Vinny & the Tuna.

    The only other time I know of is in 1986 we won 4 Division Games in a row week 3-6. Remember we had Indy in the division back then.

    I meant back to back to back division wins but we did do it in December of the 1998 season.

    So long ago I couldn't even remember.

    Now that sounds like a rough childhood. LOL.

    I do have some fond memories of the Ken O'Brien days, especially the 51-45 W over Marino and the Phish that year.
