The Importance of Starting the Season With 3 Straight Divisional Wins

The Jets (3-1) are currently in first place in the AFC East.

Being one field goal away from starting off the season 4-0 is a pretty great thing to be able to boast about, but winning back-to-back-to-back divisional games is even tougher (after struggling and going 2-4 in AFCE play last year).

Jets now put themselves in a great position by winning two of these three games ON THE ROAD, with Minnesota and Denver on deck going into the bye week. They are probably looking at 4-2 at worst, and maybe even 5-1 with the bye to follow.

This week, Gang Green will likely be at full strength for the first time all season when they take on Brett Favre on Monday Night Football: Santonio Holmes, Darrelle Revis, and Calvin Pace are all likely to be in action. 

The best part about starting 3-0 in the division this year?

At worst, Jets are looking at going 4-2 in the AFC East, and maybe even 5-1, as two of their last three divisional games are at home. All of this, in arguably the toughest division in football, which is a pretty comforting thought.

Things are setting up nicely for the Jets, we've just got to continue to be consistent, and take each game on a week-by-week basis. Regardless, this team looks like the real deal. J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!!
