I hate to give up on the season, but today's loss probably finishes off any realistic hopes of making the Playoffs. The Jets are 3 back of the Pats with 6 to play (and a game and a tiebreaker behind Miami). Even winning out guarantees nothing. Based on what we've seen lately, there's not much indication that's a realistic scenario anyway.
All season long, we've complained that the Jets lost because they failed to execute in one phase of the game. Not today. They were totally outplayed in all phases (except maybe special teams). The Pats came out with a lot of intensity. The Jets did not. You have to like the fight Gang Green showed in the second half, but that's not much of a victory to take away.
The official recap will be up in a bit.
