NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Coming into this past weekend, the future looked so promising.
The Jets were just one game behind the AFC East-leading Patriots, with a very winnable game against the Steelers on tap. The Pats, meanwhile, coming off their first lost, were set to take on the mighty 5-0 Saints.
Fast forward to Monday, and you have a very different divisional picture.
Heading into Week 7, the 3-3 Jets are two games behind the 5-1 Patriots and 1 1/2 games behind the 3-2 Dolphins.
As it happens, New York and New England will meet this coming Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at MetLife Stadium.
If the Jets have any prayer of winning the division, they absolutely have to upset Tom Brady and Co. this week. At least that’s what Stephen Hill believes.
“I feel like it’s going to be a hunger game,” the wide receiver said. “I think it’s a must-win for us, definitely, if we want to win this division. It’s definitely a hunger game and we have to go out there and, as we say, eat. We’ve got to go out there and make plays.”
Gang Green lost to the Patriots, 13-10, in Week 2 at Gillette Stadium.
Following the highly-anticipated game against New England, the schedule won’t get much easier for New York. The Jets will visit the Bengals and then host the Saints before their bye week.
