Jets playoff scenarios still looking iffy even if they win out

The way I see it, the Jets have to win out, and they still may not make the playoffs.  Currently it's a 3 team race for 2 wild card spots.  All 3 teams are 8-5.  The unfortunate news is that the Jets don't have any tiebreakers and thus do not control their own destiny.  If KC and Pit win out, Jets don't have much of a chance.

So either KC or Pitt needs to lose 1 more game and Jets need to win out, which means beating NE as well as DAL and BUF.  KC's opponents are a joke and they will win out.  PIT has 2 layups in Baltimore and Cleveland, however next week vs. Denver is probably their best chance to lose a game.

KC remaining opponents: @ Ravens, vs. Browns, vs. Raiders. 

PIT remaining opponents: vs. Denver, @Baltimore, @Cleveland.

So, in summary, root for Denver next week and pray the Jets win out.  Unfortunately that brutal Bills loss could come back to bite us big time.

 

Just like Oakland upset Denver today, Balt and/or Cleveland can surprise Pitt.

Plus, IMO, it's a miracle if Ben can survive 4 weeks without injury.

Couldn;t Pitt beat out QB- less Cincy?  What is our position vs Cincy for the WC?

I don't understand why we hold number 6 right now if we will lose it even if we win out. Is it because the other two 8-5 teams have only conference games remaining?

It's due to the conference games tie-break being incomplete ... we've played one more than Pitt, so our W/L % is currently better.

If Pitt and NYJ both win next week, the two will swap places. Oddly though, if we both lose next week, we then control our own destiny again - win out and we're in!

KC isn't winning out.  Against an over matched SD team they were in a life and death

struggle at home.  They'll get tripped up @BAL or by OAK

It was a rainy mess and a division game.  They played the Chargers 4 weeks ago and beat them 33-3 in San Diego.  Not every week is going to be a blowout.

On their 6 game winning streak, they're beating opponents to the tune of: 204-61.

KC is playing as good as anyone in the NFL right now.
