The Jets conclude their regular season today in Miami against the Dolphins. Their Playoff hopes are on life support. Any path to the postseason begins with a victory. Then plenty of help is needed. The Jets have put themselves into this position. Frankly, it would probably not be too painful to see this team put out of its misery. With this team's pop gun passing attack, any shelf life in the Playoffs would probably be limited. Who knows, though? The Dolphins are not a very good team so the Jets might well win this game and get the help they need. At the very least, Rex Ryan can start his career with the Jets with three straight winning seasons for what little that is worth, and the Jets can sweep their bitter rivals from South Beach for the first time since 2007.

Meanwhile, in Houston the Texans take the field with nothing to play for as they face a Titans team with everything to play for. The Jets need the struggling Texans to deliver for them like they did in Cincinnati a few weeks back.
