So when the Jets beat Buffalo 19-13, were you concerned about a sudden Jets revival?

OK, probably not. Especially because the Jets still have Cincinnati and Indianapolis remaining on their schedule. Even moreso, since Mark Sanchez left the game with what ESPN's Adam Schefter explains is a PCL sprain, although it looks like Sanchez might not miss any time.

Looks to me like the Jets are 9-7, at best, and probably no better than 8-8 -- and as tough as Monday night was on the Patriots, we can all agree they'll finish above that.

So perhaps the bigger impact comes here: With Buffalo falling to 4-8, and playing under an interim coach, do they now pack it in? I thought a hidden storyline here for next week was that the Bills would have 10 days to prep for New England, already played them tough, and seemed energized under new coach Perry Fewell.

But this probably blunts a lot of that.

As for everyone's favorite Jet, the above-pictured Darrelle Revis, he's pretty good. Terrell Owens was held to three catches for 31 yards. Wonder if the safety was shading?
