The New York Jets will continue their tumultuous season this week on the road in Jacksonville. The Jets have seen their share of awful play this season, but did see some success last week in a pitiful win against a poor Cardinals team. The Jets have fallen so far despite having a majority of the same players they had in seasons that saw them make runs to the playoffs. Technically, the Jets are not eliminated from the playoffs yet, but it would be more then a miracle if they made it in. First they would have to get past a Jaguars team that is playing much better behind new starter Chad Henne.
The Jets barely squeaked by the Cardinals last week in what may have been the most pathetic game the NFL has seen in recent memory. The game ended 7-6 in favor of the Jets who pulled Sanchez to “give the team a spark”. Backup quarterback Greg McElroy did just that as he drove the team down for a touchdown on his first drive in the game. He ended the contest 5-7 for 29 yards and a touchdown. This was after replacing Sanchez who threw 3 interceptions. Despite this poor performance by Sanchez, he may still get the start this upcoming week.
The Jaguars are coming off a tough 34-18 loss to the Buffalo Bills in New York last week. The Jaguars have been playing much better since Chad Henne has replaced an injured Blaine Gabbert though. The team has suffered injuries earlier in the season to Maurice Jones Drew and seems to have been cursed for the most part with a lot to address this offseason. At the same time, though, they could still easily beat a good Jet Team.
