    The Jets can't handle field goals?

    I can't believe nobody has said this, but because the Jets are overrated?

    I don't entirely agree with you on this. As someone said above, we are built almost identical to each other in terms of style of play (up through last year), but here's the biggest difference between the two teams: the Jets almost always find a way to win close games. We had 4 close games this season that we lost, we win those games, we're 11-5 and a playoff team; The Jets find a way to win those games.

    Divisional games are usually tough, outside of having to play the Bills.

    With how stacked that team was, not winning a super bowl was underachieving.

    Really?

    Packers and Steelers had just as much talent imo.

    That's a far different tune from being overrated. I'm by far pro-jets, but despite their young erratic QB, they have had back to back AFC championship appearances. Credit is due even tho I'm a fins fan. But in regards to the topic, we still own the record against them even though the rest of the AFC can't seem to keep them out of the conf championship game. We're not as far away as people make it seem. If we can win the close games the way the Jets can, we can make a push for the playoffs.

    I think we are close though, We're pretty solid across the board. I wouldn't be surprised if we swapped places with the Jets.

    The first game the Dolphins just outplayed the Jets.

    The second game was decided by poor tackling and kick coverage by the Jets and some nice moves by Ginn.

    The 3rd game the Jets outplayed the Dolphins for most of the game and the Dolphins failed to capitalize on some opportunities to steal a win late.

    The 4th game, both teams were terrible. The Jets had twice as many 1st downs, twice as many yards, and fewer turnovers, but couldn't make the key plays. Your punter won the game for you by continually booming punt after punt from deep in your own territory and not allowing the Jets to get good field position. Also, there was this:

    I know, drops happen, but that one was one of the worst I can remember.
