PLAYERS: Rex RyanMark Sanchez
TEAMS: New York Jets
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer The numbers and their recent level of performance indicate the New York Jets are done for 2012. Their comments say otherwise. Somehow, in the wake of two awful outings in losses to Miami and Seattle, the Jets talk about remaining confident, about turning things around, about eliminating the mistakes that are killing their chances. Indeed, after coach Rex Ryan again emphasized that Mark Sanchez is the starting quarterback despite his sinking play, Sanchez mentioned Monday how ''once things go right, they turn around so fast it will make your head spin.'' Others might call that spin. The Jets (3-6) describe it as staying optimistic. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

Who is to blame for the New York Jets turmoil?

Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks put the final nail in the coffin for the New York Jets 2012 season. The Jets are much closer to earning the No. 1 draft pick than they are to earning a spot in the playoffs. This is very far to fall for a team that was one game away from the Super Bowl just two seasons ago. There are plenty of theories about who is the root of this fiasco....

The Seattle Seahawks (6-4) beat the New York Jets (3-6) 28-7, this past Sunday at CentruyLink Field from Seattle, WA.
