Could this be the season that the New York Jets have finally turned things around?
Last season, they finished with a 4-13 record in Robert Saleh’s first season as head coach.
A year later, the Jets have a 4-2 record and are looking to enter the playoffs for the first time since 2010.
They are finding ways to win, even if they are not favored to do so.
Just crazy:#Jets are second team in the Super Bowl era to have a winning record through six games despite being an underdog in all six of those games (2001 Cleveland).

ESPN NFL Nation reporter Rich Cimini tweeted, “#Jets are second team in the Super Bowl era to have a winning record through six games despite being an underdog in all six of those games (2001 Cleveland).”
Their last two wins came against tough opposition.
The Jets easily defeated the Miami Dolphins in Week 5, 40-17.
A week later, they were successful against reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, 27-10.
Zach Wilson‘s return helped them establish a three-game winning streak.
Meanwhile, rookie running back Breece Hall is emerging as a consistent contributor for the Jets.
The former Iowa State standout led the Jets in rushing yards (97) and receiving yards (100) against the Dolphins.
The Jets are also getting some great performances from Corey Davis as of late.
The Jets Are Taking Off
The confidence coming from wins over Miami and Green Bay will help the Jets put up a great fight against their next three opponents before their bye.
They will be facing the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots before their showdown with the Buffalo Bills.
Their recent victories reveal that those teams cannot take them lightly.
After all, the Jets are tenth in points per game at 23.8.
Sustaining their winning formula will be difficult, but the Jets may have found the formula to end their postseason drought.
