The Jets still need one more win to avoid their worst finish since the disastrous Rich Kotite era—can two years be an "era"?—of the mid-'90s.

Jets No. 26
Last week: 28
During the Jets' three-game losing streak, the defense has failed to force a turnover. The Jets have the second-worst turnover differential in the NFL this season (minus-13). The Colts, whom New York hosts in Week 13, don't turn it over very often (13 turnovers in 11 games).

There's no denying Ryan Fitzpatrick makes his team a more competitive one. Is that the route Gang Green wants to take? A loss Sunday against their bitter rivals sets Fitzpatrick and Co. back to 3-8. It's all about 2017 now—and the signs aren't terrible if Week 12 is a barometer. The defense didn't sack Tom Brady, but it hurried him. It held New England to a 4-of-14 conversion rate on third down. And Quincy Enunwa averaged over 21 yards per catch.

Chris Long's strip-sack was more a defensive-hustle play than it was a Fitzmagic blunder, but the QB has to feel that pressure and step up. Fans in New York have been merciless on their quarterback. But their defense is mercifulto Tom Brady, so that's nice.
