The Jets are back in action this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. They had two weeks to think about what went wrong in an ugly Week 10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Jets remain in the AFC Playoff race for the moment, but they need to start winning games to stay there. This was a struggling team heading into the bye, having lost four of five games.
They do not get an easy task coming out of the bye. The 7-3 Panthers are coming in for a visit. Carolina is having a nice bounceback season after a disappointing 2016. They probably deserve to be road favorites in this game.
On today's podcast we preview the game. Which players need to step up, and what needs to happen for the Jets to pull an upset in this game? As we do every week, we pick one key player, one key matchup, and one key to victory on both offense and defense for the Jets.
