Are Jets legit playoff contenders?
Each week, we get a different set of New York Jets. One game, they're beating the New England Patriots. The next, they're losing by 40 to the Cincinnati Bengals. Then, Sunday, they win 26-20 over the New Orleans Saints -- whose only previous loss all season came against those same New England Patriots. Add it all up, and Rex Ryan's team is 5-4, alternating victories and defeats in each of the first nine weeks. Which means ... we don't know. Are the men in green for real? And what to make of New Orleans (now 6-2)?
