Our favorite quarterback not named Mark Sanchez this week
Kansas City over San Diego: Any scenario that involves the Jets clinching a Playoff spot this weekend involves a San Diego loss.
Tennessee over Indianapolis: One path to clinching involves a Colts loss.
Oakland over Jacksonville (But really root for a tie): A path to clinching this weekend involves a Jaguars loss if the Jets win or a Raiders loss if the Jets tie. The Jets win scenario is more likely, but a tie in this game would help the Jets in any scenario as much as a loss for either team.
Cincinnati over Pittsburgh: The Jets will probably have to beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh to beat them out for seeding assuming either both finish first or both finish second in their respective divisions. A Steelers losing streak would be the other option for the Jets going ahead.
Houston over Baltimore: The Jets currently lead the Ravens by a game for the fifth seed in the AFC Playoffs. Given how strong the Wild Card teams could be, that fifth seed could be important. It's not at all a stretch to say an AFC Championship Game pitting the 5 against the 6 in the AFC is a possibility.
