Last in your preseason power rankings, now playoff-bound in the AFC?

Monday on SiriusXM Sports Zone’s Bleacher Report Radio, NFL analyst Aaron Nagler confirmed that following their surprising win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, the New York Jets may just be playoff material.

“Can they make the playoffs? Absolutely,” said Nagler. “If the Jets can get a clean game out of their offense, don’t turn the ball over, and rely on their defense, they’ll be in every single football game.”

Meanwhile, the team everyone is chasing in the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs, improved to 9-0 with a win over the Buffalo Bills Sunday. But as Nagler pointed out, Kansas City’s strength of schedule skyrockets after the bye week.

“They beat people like Blaine Gabbert, like Jeff Tuel, Jason Campbell,” an unimpressed Nagler said. “Now they have their bye week to get ready for Peyton Manning twice, Phillip Rivers twice, Andrew Luck, RG3 – It’s a little different in the second half of the year.”
