Post Hope for Jets win today?
Ok, for those of you who did not suffer a stroke after reading that statement, does it make sense? Right now we are 0-2 in the division and the Jets are 2-2 so thats the reason why we are on the outside looking in. The first tiebreaker for the wild card defaults to the division records. Still, we have two games against them still so we control our destiny in that aspect to some extent. We have to AT WORST split with them

That brings head to head record. A hypothetical split with NY creates a push with them. One of the other contenders is the Ravens. Loss to Baltimore would have us in the back seat to them if we were tied with just them.

With the way things look, there is a decent chance there could be 3+ teams tied for that last spot. That brings the next step which is the conference record. The Ravens have 4-4 conference record and the Jets are 2-5.

If the ravens win, we would have two things going against us. They have the head to head, as well as a slight edge in conference record at this point. Part of me would much rather have them out of the picture sooner than later and take the odds worrying about the Jets (whom we play twice).

I know this is early in the game, but I think it is fun to think of all the possibilities. Sorry for all the speculation, but hopefully it can lead to some good conversation!

After we sweep the Jets we should own all tiebreakers?

I just cannot see any scenario where I'd root for the Jets.

In any of these scenarios, we're required to win at least 4 of our last 6.

With over a month left, how about we worry about us?

Usually when teams take care of their own business, the rest of the pieces fall into place.

That said, I'm rooting against the Jets for 2 reasons.

1) They're the Jets
2) I want Rex fired so that he's available for Miami to steal.

Exactly. I doubt I'm alone when I say every time I watch a Miami game I'm simply waiting for the team to collapse. When you're hoping for the clock to run out before the team chokes you know your team is not going to make things happen.

Rex in Miami would be pretty cool.
