The Jets are still mathematically alive for the two Wild Card spots in the AFC, though it would take a lot for them to get there.
With their win over the Chiefs on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, the Jets improved to 5-7 -- two games behind the 7-5 Ravens for the final Wild Card spot and three games behind the 8-4 Jaguars for the first Wild Card spot.
However, between the Jets and the Ravens are the Chargers, Bills, and Raiders, who are all 6-6.
Right behind the Jets are the Dolphins and Bengals (who are also 5-7). However, the Jets currently hold tiebreakers over both teams.
If the Jets beat the Broncos in Week 14 and the Saints in Week 15, they can move in to position for the final Wild Card spot if the Bills, Raiders, Chiefs, Ravens, Chargers, and Dolphins all lose their next two games, as explained by Calvin Watkins of Newsday...
After facing the Broncos and Saints on the road the next two weeks, the Jets play the Chargers at home and Patriots on the road to finish the season.
