In the span of two weeks, the New York Jets have gone from fashionable pick to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl to being in a three-way tie atop their division.
For the second consecutive week, the Jets failed to separate themselves from the AFC East pack. On Sunday they lost 24-14 to the San Francisco 49ers in Candlestick Park.
San Francisco had the ball for 39:49 despite throwing the ball 39 times.
Jets juggernaut Thomas Jones ran only 10 times, but had 56 yards and a touchdown. The Jets ran 11 times all game.
So that means Brett Favre had big numbers, right? The Jets didn't have the ball long enough for that.
Favre completed 20 of 31 passes for 137 yards and zero touchdowns with one interception. He connected with Laveranues Coles one time for 5 yards.
