Originally written on Turn On The Jets  |  Last updated 11/19/14

The New York Jets currently sit at 4-3, likely a game or two behind the place many people thought they would be at this point of the season. When looking at their remaining nine games, it is very conceivable the Jets could still finish with 10 or 11 wins. Of course the deciding factor in that is going to be if they play like they did in the second half against San Diego for the remainder of the season or like they did in the second half against Oakland. Let’s look at what’s left for the Jets –

  • November 6th at Buffalo

A huge game that will go a long way how the AFC East and wild-card race will look for the remainder of the season. I would expect Buffalo to take care of business against Washington this week, meaning the Jets will be a full game behind the Bills heading into this meeting. The key against the Bills is to not turn the football over and slow down Fred Jackson.

  • November 13th vs. New England, Sunday Night

Showdown. Especially, if the Jets can beat Buffalo and New England slips up against either Pittsburgh or the Giants in the next two weeks. Even without a Patriots slip-up in the coming weeks, a Jets win will make them relevant in the AFC East race for the rest of the season. They have never been swept by New England since Rex Ryan has taken over.

  • November 17th at Denver, Thursday Night

A short week. A long trip. Tebow Christ. This should be an interesting game.

  • November 27th vs. Buffalo

The Bills for the second time in four weeks. They are a different team on the road and if the Jets handle their business, this could be a chance to bury them in the AFC East race and seriously cripple them in the wild-card hunt.

  • December 4th at Washington

Considering the way their season is headed, this should one of the easier games left on the Jets schedule if not the easiest. Rex Ryan and his defense should be able to tee off on the John GrossBeck crap platter at quarterback.

  • December 11th vs Kansas City

The Chiefs looked like the worst team in football for three weeks but now look halfway decent. Regardless, the Jets should be able to handle them at home.

  • December 18th at Philadelphia

A difficult road trip to face Mike Vick and the Eagles, who will likely need this game as they attempt to claw back in the NFC East race.

  • December 24th vs G-Men

How many fights are going to break out in the stadium? How many holidays are going to be ruined? It looks like this game will have playoff implications for both teams and you know Rex Ryan’s off-season quotes will be plastered all over the place leading up to it.

  • January 1st at Miami

Good to know if the Jets need this one, they finish against one of the worst teams in recent NFL history.

If you remember my roadmap to the Jets making the playoffs from a few weeks ago when they were 2-3, you will see they are on pace by taking the first step in sweeping Miami and getting a split out of the San Diego/New England match-ups. Sticking to that original article, 10 wins can be achieved like this –

  • Take 2 out of 3 from remaining NFC East opponents
  • Beat Kansas City, Denver, and Miami
  • Split with Buffalo

Not too crazy, right? Nevermind the reality that the Jets have a good shot to knock off New England at home, as they have done the past two years.
