Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

Are the New York Jets the new favorite to win the AFC?

A few weeks ago, folks wondered if the Jets were AFC East contenders. Now they're playing like world beaters.

The Jets on Sunday beat the previously undefeated Tennessee Titans, 34-13, in Nashville. It was an emphatic, all-phases display on the road for the second straight week. The Jets last week edged the New England Patriots in overtime at Gillette Stadium.

The Jets, who went 4-12 last year, lead the AFC East at 8-3.

New York's offense had all sorts of options at its disposal and kept the ball for an astounding 40 minutes 30 seconds.

Running backs Thomas Jones and Leon Washington combined for 178 rushing yards. Washington scored two touchdowns on the ground, and Jones caught one.

Jets quarterback Brett Favre completed 25 of 32 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns.

All that was missing was a special teams or defensive touchdown.
