Jets No. 5 (Up 5 from Last Week; Up 17 from Week 1)
Give Ryan Fitzpatrick mad respect. Three touchdowns, no picks and a 109.4 passer rating in the team's biggest game of the year.
Jets No. 6 (Up 4 from Last Week; Up 17 from Week 1)
A lot will be made about New England's decision to win the coin toss and let the Jets receive, but the focus should be on Ryan Fitzpatrick's game-winning 80-yard touchdown drive. In just one offseason, first-year GM Mike Maccagnan was able to completely revamp the roster.

The Jets are coming off as big a win as they've had all season.

Jets No. 8 (Up 3 from Last Week; Up 13 from Week 1)
New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall's wingspan hasn't been fair for a long time. So long that Sunday he became the first player in NFL history with six 100-plus catch seasons.

Jets No. 8 (Up 2 from Last Week; Up 20 from Week 1)
They win and they are in this week. That's impressive.
Jets No. 9 (Up 3 from Last Week; Up 17 from Week 1)
GM Mike Maccagnan sent Chicago a fifth-round draft choice in exchange for Brandon Marshall (100 receptions and has a career high 13 touchdowns this season). A few days later, Maccagnan acquired QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (3,700 yards and 29 TDs) for a conditional sixth-rounder.

Jets No. 9 (Up 2 from Last Week; Up 16 from Week 1)
It was going to be a shame if they finished 11-5 and missed the playoffs, but that's not possible anymore.
