The Jets remain in sixth place in the AFC after the early afternoon slate of NFL games. In bad news for the Jets, both the Chiefs and the Steelers won. In better news, the Bills and the Colts lost. Oakland vs. Denver, New England vs. Houston, and NY Giants vs. Dolphins are the remaining games this weekend that will impact the AFC Playoff race. As things are shaping up, however, the big fish are Kansas City and Pittsburgh. The Jets are now two games clear of the other AFC Wild Card contenders.
