Believe it or not, the New York Jets are right on track to make the playoffs. Yes, the same Jets who were left for dead just three weeks ago after an ugly 2-3 start to the season.
The same Jets whose locker room was in complete disarray with infighting between wide receivers, the offensive line and offensive coordinator.
The same Jets whose head coach’s loud-mouth, brash-talking style was not getting through to his players anymore.
The same Jets whose offense was so horrible that it needed almost an entire first half to get a first down against the winless Miami Dolphins just a week ago.
The Jets' miraculous turnaround started against the New England Patriots in Foxborough in Week 5. Even though it was a loss, they started the transformation back to their successful ground and pound game. The defense also had a very strong showing, intercepting Tom Brady while sacking him four times.
In the Patriots game, the Jets, as a team, compiled 97 rushing yards. In their previous game against the Baltimore Ravens, they had just 38 rushing yards as a team.
Here are five reasons why the Jets are going to make the playoffs.
