The New York Jets didn’t play a game in Week 10 but that didn’t stop fans and media members from spectating on Sunday.

During the 1 p.m. slate, all eyes were on AFC East rivals Buffalo and Miami, who had tough matchups versus the Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns. At the end of the first half, morale was certainly down after the Dolphins and Bills took big leads over their opponents.

Miami never let up on that hot start, rolling straight past Cleveland to move to 7-3 on the season. Buffalo on the other hand did not share the same success, allowing the Vikes back into one of the crazier regular-season outings of 2022 so far.

In the end, the back-and-forth overtime affair was lost on a Josh Allen interception, and that result set the stage for a pivotal Week 11 rematch for Gang Green in New England.

Jets-Patriots Rematch Could Have Pivotal Ramifications

The Jets have not beaten the Patriots since 2015, and the Bill Belichick-run franchise has already become a thorn in the side of newcomers Zach Wilson and Robert Saleh. Both are 0-3 against the long-time rival since arriving in New York, although the young QB left one start early with an injury.

After the Bills’ Week 10 loss, the Jets community reacted on Twitter by noting the importance of their upcoming test in New England. “The Jets will be in first place in the AFC East if they beat the Patriots next week,” informed The Jet Press, adding: “Conversely, if the Jets lose to the Patriots next week they will likely be in last place in the AFC East.”

That’s how thin the margin for error is in this division right now with the Dolphins at 7-3 (on a bye next week) and the Bills and Jets hot on their tail at 6-3. The Green & White currently hold the head-to-head tiebreak over both Buffalo and Miami, meaning a 7-3 record automatically shifts them into first.

As stated above, however, a loss could drop them to fourth — so long as the Bills win. The Patriots would tie New York in record if they keep their streak going in Week 11. The two head-to-head victories would then push them past Gang Green in the standings.
