Marker There's Just Last Stands Remaining for the Jets [5:59 AM]
New York Times reports: '"He made it plain to us that we would not leave the stadium unless we were 5-7," Curtis Martin said. "And now we're 5-7. When our leader stands up and says something, you feel obligated to carry it out. I think we all feed off his fire."'

Marker Chad, Jets stayin' alive [5:58 AM]

Marker Herm knows Jets must fly next year [5:57 AM]
New York Daily News reports: '"A lot of it is on me, my fault," he continued. "I've got to do a better job. If I don't, I don't know. We've got to do something. So I've got to do a better job with this football team. I know that."'

Marker Jet to be determined [5:56 AM]
New York Post reports: 'To those who believe the Jets have used up their supply of miraculous finishes the past two seasons, Ray Mickens offered these defiant words: "We ain't dead. We're still playing. We ain't going to let it die."'

New York Post reports: 'Edwards, asked which loss this season eats at him most, said, "The first game of the season [in Washington, 16-13]. That was one where if we win that game it kind of propels you in a different direction. The game was tied, it was on the road with all the fanfare, and we had a chance to win it. If we win that game we get a little shot in the arm."'

Marker Big Win Can Do Wonders [5:54 AM]
New York Newsday reports: '"I'm just glad our head coach had the nerve to tell everybody we were going to win this game," defensive tackle Josh Evans said.'

Marker Edwards Is a Preacher Man Who's Found His Believers [5:53 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'You can say all you want that the Jets are paid to play hard, that they're professional athletes, that if losing a few games is the worst that ever happened to them, then their lives are pretty blah blah blah. But it's not easy to do what Edwards has been able to do with the Jets after their 0-4 start this year.'

Marker Jets still clinging to hope [5:52 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: 'The Jets play the Dolphins in Miami on the final Sunday of the season. If either Cincinnati or Baltimore, currently tied for the AFC North lead, and Denver go 2-2 to finish the season 9-7, and the Jets beat Miami, the Jets would clinch the last playoff spot because they'd have a 9-3 conference record and the other teams involved in this complex mess would be 8-4.'

Marker Cottrell has reason for satisfact [5:51 AM]

Newark Star Ledger reports: 'In the past two seasons, Pennington is 11-6 as a starter. He has completed 388 of 571 passes -- 67.9 percent -- for 4,510 yards, 34 TDs and 12 interceptions. He has a passer rating of 102.7.'

Marker Sidelined Abraham frustrates club [5:49 AM]

Marker Another wild ride for Jets? [5:48 AM]
New Haven Register reports: 'Already eliminated from defending their AFC East title — New England is 10-2 with four games left — and assuming the first wild-card berth goes to the AFC South runner-up between Indianapolis and Tennessee (both 9-3), the Jets would be aiming at the second wild-card spot. Miami (8-4) is leading the pack for that berth and it plays host to the Jets in the season finale Dec. 28. In order for the Jets to win that game and make the playoffs, they would need to also win their previous three (at Buffalo and against Pittsburgh and New England at home) while Miami wins no more than one of its next three (at New England, home against Philadelphia and at Buffalo).'

Marker Edwards keeps Jets believing [7:04 PM]
AP reports: '``Playing under anxiety, that helps you too when you know you're playing with a respirator and that's about all you've got,'' Edwards said. ``You know when they cut the hose off it's over. We're playing that way. It's been dark for about two months now. There's a little glimmer of light."'

Marker Bills’ defense still must get takeaways and sacks [3:03 PM]

Marker Bills offense catches on vs. Giants [5:16 AM]

Marker What does Sunday's win mean for Bills? [5:15 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'At this point, any win is a good win for this team, but I still contend that unless the Bills are the 1978 Yankees, who overcame a 14-game deficit to catch and ultimately beat the Red Sox, the playoffs are a pie-in-the-sky dream.'

Marker Depressingly bad [5:14 AM]

Nashville City Paper reports: 'He said, “I probably should have thought about what I was going to say. I have the right to my opinion, but I should be smarter than that. I shouldn't go to the media with concerns about things that are going on.” That, in itself, spoke volumes.'

Marker Bills jell vs. Giants, but season's a bust [5:11 AM]
USA Today reports: 'The Bills have experienced assorted problems protecting the less-than-mobile Bledsoe, and they rank among the worst teams in the league at third-down conversions. Some of that might be explained by a groin injury to wide receiver Eric Moulds, whose game-breaking abilities have been compromised, and the trade that sent Peerless Price, another explosive wideout, to Atlanta for a first-round draft choice. But Donahoe says, ''You can't say not having Peerless Price was the reason we didn't score an offensive touchdown on the road in almost two months. I love Peerless and he's an impact player, but he doesn't have that kind of impact.'''
