The Jets sneak a Wildcard spot as their defense continues to stymie every QB they encounter. 

You can find another AFC East team with an impressive defense and a stuttering offense just down the Thruway. The Jets defense has made 15 turnovers, and their offense has given it away 14 times. The Jets' offense struggles aren’t limited to but mainly rear their ugly head in the red zone. The Jets have gone 36 drives without scoring a touchdown. But without wishing to seem overly optimistic, it’s coming.  

They won’t play a defense as desperate to fight and scrap for everything as Antonio Pierce’s Raiders for a while. Breece Hall is a constant threat, and Garrett Wilson and Zach Wilson are starting to develop some chemistry. Nathaniel Hackett also appears to have realized Wilson can scramble for first downs, too. But, having said that.
