The calendar has flipped to November, and the Jets know if there is any hope of making a playoff push, that time has arrived.
“In my experience, November and December is where teams really make pushes,” said wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, who won a Super Bowl in Seattle. “Obviously, we would want to be in a better position, but we’re at where we’re at so these next opportunities are really good for us.”
The 3-5 Jets face the 4-4 Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday afternoon, hoping to salvage their season. They have lost two straight to NFC opponents. Now, they begin a stretch of three straight AFC East games and four of their next five are inside the division. They face the Bills at home next week then get a bye before the Patriots visit MetLife.
