Sitting at 5-5 and leading the AFC for the sixth and final playoff spot for the 2013 New York Jets might be a shock to fans, coaches and executives around the league.
However, for those who actually pay attention, the facts point to the Jets doing exactly what the experts picked them to do in the preseason polls, which is play like one of the worst teams in the NFL.
After their latest meltdown against Buffalo, the Jets have now given up 85 more points than they have scored. Only the lowly Jaguars are worse (-189).
After another meltdown by Geno (dont spell it Gino) Smith, the Jets have now turned the ball over 14 more times than their opponents. Only the Falcons can say that, as they are tied with the Jets for the worst TO Diff in the NFL.
Who knows what the final 6 games will tell, but judging from the results so far, this Jets team, outside of a few clutch kicks from Nick Folk (who should be a MVP candidate) are exactly what the experts predicted them to be, one of the worst teams in the NFL.
