NEW YORK (WFAN) — The last time the Jets won consecutive games was just a shade over a year ago. If they want to keep their playoff hopes alive they will almost certainly have to do it again, for starters.
The problem for the Jets is they have to go to Carolina, where the Panthers are 5-1, with their lone loss coming back in the season opener to Seattle, which currently owns the best record in the NFL. Compounding that problem is the fact that the Jets are 1-5 on the road.
But the Jets (6-7) have to find a way. They have no choice. They sit one game back of Baltimore and Miami in the race for the final AFC wild card berth and would lose the tiebreaker to both.
