The Jets (8-8) came into the game needing a win along with losses by three other teams to reach the playoffs. Instead they finished the season with three consecutive defeats, a big step backward for a team that reached the AFC championship game each of the past two years. The Jets again were victims of their own mistakes, with each interception leading to a field goal. They've given up 126 points off turnovers this year, the most in the NFL. NFL active sacks leader Jason Taylor, playing his final game, forced Sanc...
