After Sunday's disappointing loss, many people are wondering what happened, but the Dolphins have managed to pull out a few wins in tight fashion this year, including in Week 6 against the Jets' next opponent: the Atlanta Falcons.
The defending NFC champions find themselves in an improbable scenario whereby, after starting 3-0, they could end up being swept by the entire AFC East in four consecutive games.
There's no doubt the Jets will be large underdogs, but the adage is there are no easy road games in the NFL, and the Falcons will face a significant amount of pressure to not fall under .500. Before the season, this is a game in which nobody gave the Jets much of a chance, but they ran the Patriots a lot closer than the Falcons did on Sunday night, so perhaps they have a shot after all.
Expectations were so low for this Jets team that they entered the year as a team with nothing to lose. However, as the season progresses and the team shows it can compete after all, the stakes become higher. At the same time, that makes the losses they suffer all the more painful for the fans.
