Can Jets survive four-game stretch?

9/26/2012

The New York Jets are 2-1 and tied for first place in the AFC East.

But how long will it last?

Looking ahead, the Jets need to bring their "A" game or they won't be in first place for long. New York enters its toughest four-game stretch of the season -- with three of the four against teams that made the playoffs last season -- and will be without Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis, out for the year with a knee injury.

Here are New York's next four games:

  • Sept. 30: vs. San Francisco (2-1)

  • Oct. 8: vs. Houston (3-0)

  • Oct. 14: vs. Indianapolis (1-2)

  • Oct. 21: at New England (1-2)

The 49ers, Texans and Patriots are all brutal games. The Colts are rebuilding, but the Jets can't afford to look past anyone.

The good news is New York's next three games are at home. If the Jets can split these four, they will come out of this stretch 4-3. That's considered a success near the midpoint of the season.

But a disastrous run over the next month could spell doom. It starts Sunday against a good San Francisco team.

Now it's your turn. What record will the Jets have one month from now?
