NFL Playoff Picture, Week 15: Jets Still Control Their Own Destiny

Sunday's 45-19 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, combined with the Cincinnati Bengals defeating the St. Louis Rams 20-13, puts the New York Jets in basically a must-win situation for the rest of the season.

The only way the Jets (8-6) can make the playoffs is to win out; or if a slip up occurs -- New York's remaining schedule features the New York Giants and at Miami Dolphins, respectively -- hope that the Bengals (8-6) don't win out. Cincinnati hosts Arizona and Baltimore in its final two games. The good news for Gang Green Nation is that they still control their own destiny, which is all you can ask for this late in the season.
