Key Contributors Toward Jets Playoff Chances

The Jets have been eliminated from the playoff race in the AFC in 2023. The Jets came into the 2023 season with hopes of playoff glory and that all changed just four plays into the season when QB Aaron Rodgers went down with a torn Achilles. From that point, it all changed. The Jets offense was arguably the worst in the league, bogged down by bad offensive line play, questionable play calling and terrible QB play with Zach Wilson, Tim Boyle and Trevor Siemian. The Jets hope, with a solid offseason in free agency and the NFL Draft and a healthy Aaron Rodgers, that the 2024 season will result in a playoff appearance in the AFC.

The strength for the Jets this season was their defense. It was a playoff-caliber group. Linebacker C.J. Mosley was a tackling machine and their defense was predicated on pressure. The combination of Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed at cornerback was as good as it gets in the NFL, but often times the defense got worn down due to an offense that failed to consistently move the football. The Jets hope their defense remains just a strong in 2024 and the team can play more complementary football next season. It is hard to win games in the NFL and you need all three phases, offense, defense and special teams to contribute in order to put together a winning season.

With their elimination, the Jets have failed to make the playoffs in the NFL for 13 straight years. Even with a disappointing season. it appears that coach Robert Saleh and OC Nathaniel Hackett will be back for next season and will get a chance to coach a healthy Aaron Rodgers.

Looking Ahead: New York Jets Playoff Picture

Before we hit Christmas in 2023, the Jets were eliminated from the playoff race in the AFC. Everyone is to blame for the Jets' failures this season. General manager Joe Douglas, for his failure to put together a quality offensive line and have a veteran backup quarterback. The coaching staff, for the lack of adjustment after QB Aaron Rodgers suffered his Achilles injury just four plays into the season. The quarterback is the most important position in the NFL, and outside of one start against the Houston Texans, QB Zach Wilson showed that he one of the biggest draft busts in Jet history, and that is saying a lot. The Jets were eliminated from playoff contention with their 30-0 Week 15 loss to the Dolphins in the 2023 NFL regular season.

Just like the 2022 season, the Jets wasted a playoff-caliber defense because they failed on offense. Special teams for the Jets was rock solid, but you need to score points to win in the NFL and the Jets were arguably the worst offense in the NFL in 2023.

New York Jets Postseason Outlook and Predictions

With their Week 15 loss to the Miami Dolphins in the 2023 NFL regular season, the Jets were eliminated from the playoff race in the AFC. The Jets will miss the playoffs for the 13th straight season. It will be a fascinating offseason for the Jets. It appears, thanks to Aaron Rodgers, that general Joe Douglas, coach Robert Saleh and OC Nathaniel Hackett are all safe and will not lose their jobs. That trio will reportedly get a lifeline and that is QB Aaron Rodgers.

The Jets hope Rodgers can stay healthy next season, but they will need to address a putrid offensive line. The Jets will also need another wide receiver to pair with Garrett Wilson. Douglas also needs to add a veteran quarterback because Zach Wilson will be moved in the offseason. Saleh hopes next year will bring the success they hoped for this season, but more talent is needed and the coaching staff needs to do a better job with game plans and have the Jets play a sharper brand of football in 2024.
