I started to write a post about how the Steelers and Giants in their Super-Bowl years had bad losses and played their best ball in December and January. Unfortunately, I can be very lazy at times and didn't feel like doing the research. Plus the way some of you been acting, I'll probably would be wasting my time anyway. So this post is about predicting what the Jets end of the season record will be. First off the AFC is stacked and most of the good teams play each other this year, so I believe there will not be any 14-2 or 13-3 teams this season. Secondly, the jets played a very tough first half of the season and came out of it 5-2. Its tough that both loses are at home and the Jets mostly beat themselves more then their opponents beat them. However, 5-2 is pretty good.
The Jets have nine games left, 5 on the road and 4 at home. Their next two ball games are on the road against the Lions and the Browns. Not counting my chickens, but I believed the Jets win these two games. After that two more at home against the Texans and the Bengals. Again two more games on paper the Jets win and should win.
December is where the schedule gets tough and the Jets have two tough aways games (Pats, Steelers) , three weeks apart sandwiching a home game against the Dolphins.Ok, my predictions get a little dicey at this point in this blog. I predict the Jets beat the Pats in their first December game, lose to the Dolphins and then lose to the Steelers on the road. I think the Pats are going to have a hard time scoring on the Jets and their defense, which has gotten much better is gonna have a difficult time stopping the Jets. The Dolphins is a different story. First off, I believe the Dolphins are much better then I really though they were. They probably had the toughest schedule in the league and to be 4-3 is incredible. But thats not the reason I'm picking the team I hate the most to beat my beloved Jets. If my predictions are right to this point, then the Jets will be flying high. They also might be looking past the Dolphins because they will have a big game in Pittsburgh the next week. Also with this game against the Dolphins, you just throw out the records. The're always close and any team can beat the other.
The next two would be 1 on the road against the Bears and 1 at home against the Bills. I predict two wins, no reasons needed. Two easy wins unless the Bills come into the last game 0-15, then that game will tough, but still a Jet win.
So there you have it. I'm predicting the Jets will go 12-4, AFC champs, and a first or second seed in the playoffs. I know some of you don't see this and believe the season is lost by now. Thats why I'm including a poll with all possible records that don't include ties.
