    You mean score points.

    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:
    @Buffalo
    @Baltimore
    Miami
    Oakland
    @Carolina
    Cleveland
    @Miami

    Record: 7-9 / 8-8 / 9-7 / 10-6
    ------------

    Baltimore:
    @Cleveland
    Cincinnati
    @Chicago
    New York Jets
    Pittsburgh
    Minnesota
    @Detroit
    New England
    @Cincinnati

    Record: 7-9 / 8-8
    ------------

    Tennessee:
    @St LouisJacksonville
    Indy
    @Oakland
    @Indy
    @Denver
    Arizona
    @Jacksonville
    Houston

    Record: 9-7
    ------------

    San Diego:
    @Washington
    Denver
    @Miami
    @Kansas City
    Cincinnati
    New York Giants
    @Denver
    Oakland
    Kansas City

    Record: 7-9
    ------------


    Miami:
    Cincinnati
    @Tampa Bay
    San Diego
    Carolina
    @New York Jets
    @Pittsburgh
    New England
    @Buffalo
    New York Jets

    Record: 7-9
    ------------

    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.

    no. 5 wins does not clinch a playoff spot in week 9.

    No but if you're 5-4 and heading into the easier part of your schedule you have a good shot at the wildcard.

    It's a hypothetical question. Yes, we're in.

    No, probably not.

    1. I doubt we beat the Saints, making the question moot, we're probably about to be blown out again tbh.

    2. The schedule is not nearly as soft as people say, and most of the "soft" teams say WE are the "easy win" on THIER schedule.

    New York Jets:
    @Buffalo
    @Baltimore
    Miami
    Oakland
    @Carolina
    Cleveland
    @Miami

    We probably lose @Buffalo, @Baltimore, Oakland-or-Cleveland and @ Miami at the least. After losing to the Saints, that makes us 8-8 at best IMO.

    Right where I predicted.

    Toss Buffalo as a win, and we're 9-7, still probably not good enough for a berth. But damn good considering the low-expectations almost everyone had pre-season.
    Your post is most likely spot on.

    If we win tomorrow, we will be a playoff team IMO. The Saints are definitely a playoff team. Beating them is like beating the Patriots. Confidence grows, and we can steal a few.

    If we beat the Saints, Jets are in the driver's seat until they lose.

    Just like when we beat NE. We were sky high until we got 'Surface to Air Missiled' by the Bengals.

    I'm sure this team will not be the same team that showed up in Cinci. With two weeks to rest they will give 150% effort.

    We will be considered a playoff team for two weeks if we beat the Saints. After that.... who knows.

    I would have wavered more on this but when we play like this, and if we win, then yes, this team is a playoff contender for sure.
