The Jets didn’t take care of business in Chicago on Sunday, but still exit Week 16 with a ticket to the playoffs.
Thanks to the Redskins’ overtime win over the Jaguars, the Jets (10-5) secured a playoff berth and a wild-card slot in the AFC playoffs. The Jets entered the weekend needing a win, or a loss by either the Jaguars or Colts.
So the AFC wild-card slots are filled with the Ravens and Jets, who entered the weekend as the No. 6 seed. The Jaguars and Chargers are still in the playoff hunt, however, as neither have been eliminated from winning their respective divisions.
