With all the talk about the inability of the Jets to score a touchdown in three preseason games, the good news is that the rest of the division isn’t exactly tearing up the NFL in the games that don’t count.
Yeah, it’s the preseason. Still, the four teams of the AFC East have combined through three weeks of the preseason for one win — and 11 losses.
And they’ve collectively been more than doubled up in points, scoring 130 and allowing 270.
It hardly means that the AFC East will be the worst top-to-bottom division in the league. But it should make Jets fans feel a little better (or a little less bad) about the performance of their team’s offense.
The good news is that, as of Week One, the AFC East teams are guaranteed to at least match their win total in the preseason to date. After all, the Jets host the Bills.
Then again, it’s impossible to rule out a 0-0 tie.
