Jets apparently won't be getting much help


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

The New York Jets aren't enjoying the 1 o'clock games.

As they await their game against the Seattle Seahawks at Qwest Field, they're coming to the realization they won't be getting any outside help in their bid to win the AFC East.

The Miami Dolphins scored on their first play from scrimmage, a 31-yard Ted Ginn reverse, and have tacked on a field goal to lead the Kansas City Chiefs, 10-0, with that game only 3:08 old. The Chiefs responded with a touchdown, and that score is 10-7 as I type this.

The New England Patriots needed only 3:47 to turn their first possession into a touchdown and scored on their second, too. They lead the Arizona Cardinals, 14-0, with 3:46 to go in the first quarter at Gillette Stadium.
