The New York Jets faced the Green Bay Packers in Week 6, and embarrassed them at Lambeau Field. The Packers climbed back into the game with a fantastic pitch-and-catch between Aaron Rodgers and Allen Lazard, but Breece Hall broke off a 34-yard run to move the Jets lead back to two scores early in the fourth quarter. The Packers couldn’t figure out anything on offense and the Jets cruised to a 27-10 victory.
With the win, the Jets improve to 4-2 on the season. It marks the first time the team has been 4-2 through six weeks since 2015. That season saw the team finish 10-6 and miss the playoffs. Prior to that, the team had 5-1 starts in 2010, 2004, and 2000. They made the playoffs in 2010 and 2004, but came up short of the playoffs in 2000 when they finished the season 9-7.
New York entered Sunday’s game tied with the Dolphins for second place in the AFC East, a game back of the Bills. Buffalo is on the road facing the Chiefs in Week 6, so if they hold on, there is a chance the Jets could find themselves tied for first place by the end of Sunday.
Prior to Sunday’s game, the Jets were +500 to make the playoffs at DraftKings Sportsbook. Their odds to not make the playoffs were listed at +750.
