The Jets return home today after a brutal defeat in Miami last week to face the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons come into this game struggling themselves. Atlanta is on a three game losing streak. Those three games have come against the other three teams in the AFC East so a loss today would mean a clean sweep by the division.

The narrative around the Jets will change quite a bit depending on the outcome of this game. A win would mean a .500 first half of the season, above all expectations entering the year. A loss would mean the Jets are starting to play down to those expectations. They would fall three games under .500 and end the first half of the year on a three game losing streak. People might start to wonder whether that early three game winning streak was something of an aberration.

In addition to the Falcons, the Jets might have to fight the elements. The weather forecast indicates a very unpleasant day awaits at the stadium.
