Well here we go again, with the win over the Rams today, the National media is talking about Cincy playoff possibilities. Thats 8 times we we have played losing teams and we have won them all. At this rate, theres only one winning team remaining on our sked that can keep us from the Playoffs: Baltiomore! Final Game at PBS. If Jets and Cincy win out, its comes down to strength of sked. From Bengals.com:
» The Bengals and Jets are tied for that last AFC Wild Card spot at 8-6 overall and 6-5 in the AFC. But if they finish tied, ESPN.com says the Jets still hold the tiebreakers based on best winning percentage in common games. Plus, the Jets have a higher strength of victory percentage at .396-.304
Winning only against losers (the what if's loom large now: what if we had just fallen on the fumble v Texans, what if we could have sucked it up a few more minutes to beat the Steelers) is getting old, but it is what it is, and those W's are great stepping stones for the young squad. We have one more chance (at least) to overcome that sad status versus B'more.
Superstar: Green, as he breaks the 1000 yard mark with another 100 + game he is now 3 yards (or somethin like that) from #80, Collinsworth rookie yards record. Coincidently the long lanky one, recieved his bombs from another #14 one Kenny Anderson, nice karma for young Dalton ;)
Thoughts/Tweets during the game: (One thing that was itching me wrong were the fans frustration over Rams playing us tough in the first half, folks, we are a young team on the road, since when is this team so entitled to beat the Rams up? This team is still forming, we should barely be favored on the Road v anyone!)
O BTW Jets play Giants in Meadowlands (hmmmm) and @ Dolphins (double hmmmm) I like ;)
At The half: when the stat worst team in the NFL was beating us with chip shots 6-3:
