New York Jets at Washington Redskins Game Thread

The Jets head to the nation's capital today to take on the Washington Redskins. Gang Green once again most likely needs a win to keep its postseason hopes alive.

You might be tempted to say this is a game the Jets should win. The fact of the matter is we are past the point of being able to say that about any game. The Jets are an average football team. They have an offense as close to the bottom of the league as the defense is close to the top.

The Redskins also have strengths to match up with areas the Jets are weak. They have a good tight end to exploit New York's safeties in coverage and good edge rushers to go after New York's weakness at right tackle. Expect a close game between two pretty bad offenses. Maybe I just reverse jinxed the Jets, and we'll get the kind of performance we should see.

Leave your thoughts below. Even though almost nobody outside the New York or Washington metro areas is getting this game, do not post any links to illegal streams broadcasting the game.
