Only 2 AFC teams are 2-0
This is big for the Pats. Only 2 teams are 2-0, and they’re both currently winning their divisions, meaning all of the teams slotted for “wild card” spots are 1-1. Pats are 1 game behind a playoff spot at most. They can beat the Jets, and many of the 1-1 teams they are behind right now in the AFC play each other this weekend. They can be in the middle of it all again very easily with a win this weekend.
