After his Jets got stomped on by the Patriots last week, head coach Rex Ryan buried the game ball from that contest and told his players they needed to put the game behind them and move on.
Now, he might want to bury his team's offensive playbook.
The Jets lost their second straight game yesterday, falling to the Dolphins at home 10-6.
Think the Ravens are having offensive issues? New York has now scored just nine points in their last two games combined, and quarterback Mark Sanchez's touchdown-to-interception ratio in those games is 0-4.
With the loss, the Jets now sit at 9-4, meaning that with a win tonight over the Texans, the Ravens would leapfrog the Jets for the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoff picture.
While the Ravens also would own a 9-4 record if they take care of business in Houston, they have the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Jets, so Baltimore would get the higher Wild Card spot.
If things play out that way and the Ravens get the No. 5 seed, they would face the AFC's No. 4 seed in the first round of the playoffs.
As of today, that would be the Jaguars, who have a one-game lead over the Colts for the AFC South division lead. The Chiefs, who lead the Chargers by a game in the AFC West, are currently the three seed.
If I'm the Ravens (or the Jets, for that matter), I'm hoping both the Jags and Chiefs hold on and win their respective division titles.
I know both the Colts and Chargers have struggled at times and are missing a number of guys due to injuries, but I wouldn't want to face either team in the playoffs. Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers are still Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers, regardless of who they have around them.
