The Jets appeared lifeless during yesterday’s 13-3 loss to the Seahawks and quarterback Brett Favre stood exasperated following the defeat. Earlier wins by the Dolphins and Patriots put a thorn to the Jets’ playoff hopes and a nightmare collapse crept closer to reality. Now with just a matchup against the Dolphins at the Meadowlands remaining, the Jets (9-6) sit one game behind Miami (10-5) and New England (10-5) in the AFC East. While the Jets appear dejected, there still is hope for a return trip to the playoffs.

1. The Jets can win the AFC East with a win over the Dolphins and a Bills victory over the Patriots. The scenario would put the Jets, Dolphins and Patriots into a three-way tie with a 10-6 record, but the Jets would win the division based on a 5-1 record within the division.

2. The Jets can clinch the final wild card spot with a win over the Dolphins and a Jaguars victory over the Ravens. The scenario would give the Jets (10-6) and Ravens (10-6) an identical record, but the Jets would win the final playoff spot based on an 8-4 record within the conference. The Ravens would end the season with a 7-5 record against AFC opponents if they were to lose against the Jaguars.
