I think we'll end up at least 7-9. Baltimore, Oakland, and Carolina are all winnable, though.
I've got the division winners being New England, Cincinnati, Indy, and Denver/Kansas City (mainly due to a cake schedule). Denver or Kansas City is getting a wildcard, so that leaves us fighting with Baltimore, Tennessee, San Diego, and Miami for the final spot.
The remaining schedule for those teams + us:
New York Jets:
Record: 7-9 / 8-8 / 9-7 / 10-6
New York Jets
San Diego: @Washington
New York Giants
@New York Jets
New York Jets
Green = Win. Red = Loss. Black = Unsure.
I think it'll come down to us and Tennessee for the 6th seed. With them having the head-to-head tie-breaker over us, we'll need to beat at least 2 of my unsure teams (Baltimore, Oakland, Carolina) to edge them out.
First off winning another NFC game doesn't do anything for the Jets( They are 2-0 already against NFC beating Tampabay, and Falcons) If they want to make the playoffs they have to start winning AFC Games. With one spot only open head to head matchups and Afc conference record are going to be deciding factors. Right now the Jets Afc conference record is horrible 2-4. You lose any more than six games in the AFC and your playoff chances are probably over with.
Raiders have as good a chance as any Team to get the last playoff spot. Lets see Eagles, AT Giants, AT Texans , Titans, AT COwboys, at Jets, Chiefs, At Chargers , and finish at home against Bronco's. The hardest game on that schedule is the last game against Bronco's. Raiders have a good chance to win that game for the simple fact the Bronco's will have the home field throughout the AFC wrappped up by than.( nothing to play for) Raiders will see the Bronco's backups at home. Everyone of those other games are easily winnable games. The AFC West has fatten up on the NFC East all year.(down year for NFC East) The Jets aren"t beating the Raiders. Poor matchups on both sides of the football. The different looks they will show Geno Smith will baffle and confuse him.( They have done it all year to experience Qbs all year). Raiders real oline will be too much for Jets strength their Dline. Two more games and they play with their real oline the last seven games. Right now OLine LT Khalif Barnes LG L Nix C S wisniewski rg Mike Brisiel RT Matt McCants . In Two weeks probably oline looks something Like this LT Jared Veldheer( Get stud LT back) LG Khalif Barnes moves inside to replace Nix who has graded out bad every week( weakest link) C S Wisniewski RG Mike Brisiel( has done surprising good job) RT Menelik Watson
BTW Don't write off the Texans. They have the most talent out of all teams fighting for last spot. AFc record isn't bad. Can they get anything out of there QB. The Qb doesn't lose it and they could still end up getting that last spot.

Bills beat CAR, scored TDs with a rookie QB. Don't believe the hype, this game is not a clearcut loss by any stretch. @ ravens is the toughest game here, followed by both MIA games, and none of those are even clearcut losses either. Every single game on the post-bye stretch is winnable even if we are not playing lights out our absolute best. However with our ups and downs, every game is loosable as well. Our front 8 was tougher than our back 8 and we came out 4-4, I see no reason why we can't do 4-4 or even better on the back 8, 6-2 is not a huge stretch, but neither is 2-6.
