The New York Jets season was not the best, but the victory over Buffalo Bills is a good sign to potentially end the month of December on a high note.

I know what this all means; we still are the last team in the AFC East. However, the New York Jets beat the Buffalo Bills and that is good news to recover our beliefs for the future.

Even though the NFL Playoffs are completely out of sight, the Jets do indeed have the talent to get the job done but need to continue adding more. At this point in time, players are effectively playing for their future with this team as it’s important to see if they are worth keeping around in the long haul.

We still have more three games left to play against the Houston Texans this coming Saturday, the Green Bay Packers, and the New England Patriots for the season finale. Although we are not even a favorite to any of those matchups, all we can hope for is for the team to compete and at least show signs of progress.

The great news is that I believe in Sam Darnold and his potential to be the future franchise quarterback of the Jets. I know he isn’t the best rookie at this tournament, but the boy was struggling to earn a respect from us.

What’s next?

I still believe that we could steal the next three games. But as we are being so dysfunctional this season, I might say we could win Saturday, however, we are going to lose the next twice matches.

Why am I being so pessimistic? Mostly because this is what the team has shown the football world throughout the season. The Jets haven’t been consistent in any way, shape, or form at any point this season.

Hopefully, these players realize that it’s time to muster something up to end the season with competitive play and continued development of all these young players. It’ll be cold in December and well, a late-season surge of winning football games would help give something nice back to fans who have endured a lot in 2018.
