Can the Jets take the AFC East and the Wild Card Spot?

Can the Jets pull it together? Many are giving up at this point after Sunday's debacle of a game. The Jets lost 13-3 against the Seattle Seahawks, a team already eliminated from the playoffs, costing them their first place spot in the AFC East.
Seattle was ready to play, but where were the Jets? It's starting to look as though Brett Favre is loosing his game after some what of a great season. In the last four games Favre has thrown six interceptions which hasn't helped. To make matters worst the Jets defensive line, one of the best in the league, couldn't put the pressure on a okay Seattle offensive. To put the game more in the toilet, Jets head coach Eric Mangini made three questionable calls. The biggest one of them all came early in the fourth quarter. Jets kicker Jay Feely, kicked a 45-yard field goal, but was no good since the Jets recieved a delay-of-game penalty. Mangini choose to punt the pall istead of letting Feely kick again and added three more points. All in all Sunday's game was a dissapointment.
Where does this leave the Jets? The team now needs to win next Sunday against Miami and their ex-quarterback Chad Pennington, a team who almost beat them in week one. Also to get back their number one seed and take the AFC East, the Pats need to lose against the Buffalo Bills. This will also get them into the playoffs as a wild card. In the event the Pats win, the Jets still need to win plus they need Baltimore to lose. It now all comes down to one game.
