It's possible, if we win out and the Jets keep playing like they are. We have a pretty easy schedule ahead. Bills, Lions, and a Patriots team that has already secured a playoff spot and will probably rest its starters. Need the Jets, Ravens, Colts, and/or Chargers to lose. And we're out. To the Bil...
