#26 New York Jets (3-5): After losing four in a row, the Jets have won their last two games. While the Jets did escape with a 31-28 win against the Cleveland Browns, it was hardly an encouraging win. The Jets were thoroughly outplayed in the first half. Ryan Fitzpatrick was highly inaccurate and ineffective going 3-14 for 30 yards. He didn’t have any help either as nearly every receiver had at least one drop. Darrelle Revis was getting dismantled by Terrelle Pryor, a former quarterback. It was an all around ugly first half. Players claimed that Todd Bowles told them “Don’t come back without a win” at halftime; it must have lit a spark under them because it was like they were a rejuvenated team in the second half. The Jets scored 24 unanswered points, and held onto the win after a late score by the Browns. If the Jets want any hope of making the playoffs they need to continue to play like that rejuvenated second half team. Next up a trip to Miami, then back home against the Los Angeles Rams. If the Jets can win their next two, they’ll enter the week 11 bye at 5-5.
