Put simply, if Dallas had beaten the Jets last week, we would be rooting for the Jets to beat the Patriots this week and move them into a tie with the Bills for first place.
But instead, Sam Darnold showed why he’s the best QB of the 2018 Draft and threw dimes all over Dallas’s defense and the Jets are now 1-4, with an absolute CUPCAKE of a schedule coming up.
If the Jets beat the Patriots, they will have the:
& Raiders coming up.
That’s a very easy 8 wins right there.
Steal 2 more wins somewhere - anywhere - and they’re fighting the Bills for a playoff spot.
Their defense is good, and their QB doesn’t throw into triple coverage while being pushed out of bounds.
A similar sentiment goes for the Broncos.
That is a good team stuck in a bad record - they are 2 plays away (or a referee call more like it) from being 4-2 instead of 2-4.
I’m not as worried about them, because they face some stiff completion. KC, Bills, Houston, Minnesota, etc, but make no mistake - they are BETTER than their record indicates.
In fact, I anticipate the Broncos game being one of our toughest coming up.
