The Jets are in eighth place with a 4-3 record. The Steelers, Browns, Jets, and Bengals are tied with the same record occuying the sixth, seventh, eight, and ninth spots respectively. The Jets are currently behind Pittsburgh and Cleveland due to conference record. The Steelers and Browns are 3-2 against AFC opposition. The Jets are a half game behind at 0-2, while the Bengals are in the back of the pack with an 0-3 record.
