NFL Playoff Picture: Jets in 11th Place in AFC

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

A look at the current Playoff picture in the AFC shows why yesterday's loss to Miami was so devastating to the Jets.

In the race for the final Playoff spot, Baltimore and Miami are tied at 6-6. The Ravens currently own the tiebreaker edge over the Dolphins. A game behind at 5-7 are Tennessee, Pittsburgh, San Diego, and the Jets.

The Titans currently lead the pack because they have beaten all three teams head to head. The tiebreaker among the Steelers, Chargers, and Jets is conference record. That puts the Jets sporting a dismal 2-7 conference record last of the bunch.

Making the Playoffs is going to be a Herculean task for the Jets at this point. They are bunched up with a number of teams. The most common way a tie of three or more teams will be broken is with conference record, where the Jets fare quite poorly. With head to head losses against four of the five teams either ahead of or tied with them for the spot, this team loses two way tiebreakers too.
