is for them article By Mike Reiss ESPN Staff WriterSunday, July 29, 2018 2:05PM EDTA lot of the excitement surrounding the New York Jets this offseason was that they were going to make the playoffs.
The problem is that, for the most part, they won’t make the postseason.
They are still in the AFC East, where they’ll play against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.
The Jets are 1-2.
The AFC North has them at 5-6, but they’re a long way away from winning the division.
The Buffalo Bills are tied with the Indianapolis Colts at 7-5, but the Jets will play them in the divisional round of the playoffs in 2018.
The Jets have played better than expected.
They’re averaging 28 points per game and 7.8 yards per play.
Their offense is averaging 35.5 points per contest and 6.7 yards per pass attempt.
The defense has allowed only 20 points per outing.
This is not a team that is going to fall apart.
The Titans are a different story.
The offense has been awful, the defense has been solid, and the special teams have been abysmal.
This has been a defense that has been very good at times, but when it’s been in the right place at the right time, it has been terrible.
This is a defense and coaching staff that has gone through some personnel changes.
That’s a problem.
Injuries are another concern for this defense.
There are just not many good players available.
The defense is getting better at defending the pass and rushing the passer.
That is something that was missing last year, which is one reason why the Titans are still ranked as the worst defensive team in the NFL.
That doesn’t mean the Jets are not a good defense.
The pass rush has been great.
The run defense has improved.
The secondary has improved, which will help when the team is defending the run.
But the pass rush is not good enough to compete with the pass-rushers of the NFL and will probably be one of the reasons that the Jets don’t make it.
There is a lot of pressure on this defense to make it to the playoffs and the Titans have not done that.
The team has lost four straight games, which has left the Jets without a win in four of the last five games.
They’ve lost six of their past seven games.
This will not change anytime soon.
The Bills are in the playoff hunt and have played well, but this is a team where a lot will depend on what happens in the rest of the season.
This defense is not going to be good enough.
The next few weeks will be critical for the Jets as they try to make their first playoff appearance since 2012.
They have to get to the AFC Championship Game to win it.
