[QUOTE=SMC;4298790]Making the playoffs is secondary for me right now.
I want the Jets to play well, win the game, and end the regular season on a high note. That worked for the Falcons 2 yrs ago. They had blown their chance at the playoffs with an up and down season and were hell bent to win the last game to finish 9-7. They went 14-2 the next year. The same with the Steelers in 2009.
Beating Miami is also good to show that the Jets haven't quit on Rex.[/QUOTE]
As long as a win does not affect Ryan's mindset if he is debating on whether to fire Schotty.
[QUOTE=nycuse;4298652]Houston is trying to right a ship that has gone seriously south the last two weeks. All starters, including Andre Johnson will be playing the entire game. All that being said, I think they lose on Sunday.
I'd be happy if we go into the 4 oclock games with a chance to make the playoffs.[/QUOTE]
I think people are overlooking this point. Houston has been bad - they want to go into the playoffs with confidence.
I believe the pieces will fall the way the Jets need, but I just don't see how the Jets win.
They can not score in a league set up for offenses to put up big points.
A) The Bengals have beaten the Ravens 5 out of their last 6 in Cincinnati.
B) The Texans are locked into the #3 seed. They have literally nothing to play for.
C) The Dolphins will mop the floor with us.
I wouldn't be shocked if we made it (I do think the Chargers beat the Raiders and if I had to put money on it, I'd still take the Ravens over the Bungles) but my guess right now is that the Bengals make it.
