AFC Playoff Picture: Jets out of the running for all intents and purposes

It looks like a 13th straight season of no Playoffs.

The Jets’ loss on Black Friday to the Miami Dolphins puts them in a dire position when it comes to making the Playoffs in the AFC this year. The Jets are now three games back of the final spot in the loss column with only six games to play. Just as daunting, they need to pass seven teams to get into postseason position. Perhaps the biggest obstacle is the team will need to start winning games, which seems close to impossible at the moment with the way the offense is playing.

1. Miami Dolphins (8-3, 6-2 AFC)
