Jets vs Commanders Game Thread

The Jets look to get a win against a team as bad as they are today

Week 16 of the 2023 NFL season has the New York Jets at home to take on the Washington Commanders.

The Jets are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention at this point. The same applies to the Commanders. That makes this the point in the season when these teams are evaluating in preparation for next year. We probably will start to see more action for some of the young players the staff want to get a look at in live game action.

There really isn’t much more than that to say about this game. It’s meaningless for both teams, other than for draft position, and no matter how much we might want them to, teams don’t actively try to lose games, even to improve draft position. We are left to watch the worst offense in the NFL take on the worst defense in the NFL and try not to giggle.

We’ll see soon enough which team prevails in this ugly NFL matchup.
