Things are falling the Jets way (so far).
The New Orleans Saints topped the Tennessee Titans 22-17 this afternoon. Houston came back late to beat the Cincinatti Bengals 20-19, clinching a division title. More importantly, both of these teams moved to 7-6, which now puts the Jets ahead of them at 8-5 in the race for the final wildcard birth.
The Oakland Raiders, also at 5 losses, are down early to the Packers, 14-0. The Broncos and Bears are scoreless.
Keep an eye on these two games, the Jets could be sitting much prettier in the wild card race by the end of the day.
