Not only did the Jets end the Colts' run at perfection on Sunday, but they also got quite the perfect day themselves, as our own Gang Green Nation points out.
Baltimore, Miami, and Jacksonville losses coupled with a win puts New York in control of its own destiny heading into the final week of the season. A victory over AFC North Champion Cincinnati at the Meadowlands is all that stands between the Jets and a rubber match with the hated Pats in Foxborough. That's not bad considering where we were a month ago or even a week ago. Heck, I have said the season was over after no less than three losses since November. [...]
I'm not going to call this a great win. All that really matters is the Jets are 8-7 and can win their way into the Playoffs next week with a rookie coach and a rookie quarterback. Not too bad.
