New York Jets' Bye Week Comes at the Right Time: What They Must Improve

The New York Jets head into their Week 7 bye with an NFL best 5-1 record.

They lead the NFL with a plus-58 point point differential, have the best turnover ratio at plus-10 and feature a top-five scoring offense and defense (26.5 points scored per game compared to 16.8 points allowed per game).

All of this places the Jets among the teams talked about as "the best in the NFL."

However, the chinks in the Jets' armor are easily perceptible and their last two wins have been unnecessarily close. If not for a "Brett Favre Special" in Week 5, the Jets might have lost. Yesterday, the Jets made the Broncos' banged up defense and shoddy running game look far too good for anyone to say that this Jets team is clearly the best in the NFL.

With that in mind, here are a few things the Jets can work on during their bye week so that they can continue to win, and perhaps actually become the best team in the NFL.
