Phew! A win. Here are how some of the big media outlets rate the Jets relative to the rest of the league going into Week 15.
Geno Smith was 3-of-4 with a touchdown on passes at least 15 yards downfield Sunday. Smith had five interceptions and no touchdowns in the previous three games on deep throws.

The Jets scored a season-best 37 points on Sunday and had just one turnover. When the Jets have one or fewer giveaways, they are a perfect 4-0 on the season.

I know I have no reason to believe this, but I think Geno Smith will be a good NFL quarterback. Someday.
They're still alive and Geno Smith showed some life. They still have a lot to do to get into the postseason party.
They beat a beat-up Oakland team this week at home and it isn't grounds to believe the Jets are turning things around. They go to Carolina this week and we will see if Geno Smith is on his way.
They go as Geno goes now, although going to Carolina can't be good.
Where do you think the Jets should rank?
