IS LADY LUCK ON GANG GREEN'S SIDE?

Winners of two straight, the Jets are inching closer to postseason contention. Unfortunately New York's playoff destiny is not completely in its own hands. Gang Green will need to catch a couple breaks over the final three games, but Jets' fans have been down this road before writes Green and White Report's Daniel Feuerstein.

Once again the Jets beat a team they were supposed to beat, the floundering Jacksonville Jaguars.

But this time around Mark Sanchez actually looked like a quality quarterback at the start of the second half and led the Jets to two scores and a Nick Folk 44 yard field goal. It was nail biting time when the Jaguars were driving to try and tie the game and force it to overtime, but it was Ellis Lankster with the interception to secure the victory for Gang Green.

But as Jets fans celebrate back-to-back wins, there is still a feeling of uneasiness that the other shoe will drop. Once again one single loss within the final three games of the season will eliminate the Jets from any post-season hopes. But we are all so use to that aren't we?

But let's be honest that there is a ray of hope. The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to a terrible San Diego Chargers team at home, the Indianapolis Colts came back to defeat the Tennessee Titans. The Jets do have a tie breaker advantage over the Colts, but not against the Steelers.

Yet if the Jets can find a way to earn a tiebreaker over the Cincinatti Bengals, if the Steelers do drop from their spot, it would be a big miracle. But once again the Jets found a way to make adjustments around halftime and took Chad Henne out of the game until the fourth quarter by a Montell Owens touchdown.

He was pressured, sacked, coughed up a floater that was picked off by Bart Scott and he never looked the same during his Dolphins days. But once again the weapons on this Jaguars team are not the same from those Dolphins teams.

Yet the Jets found a way to bend but not break. You can see that this team is trying to get things right when they do go wrong. Now we have to see what's going to happen with Stephen Hill as it looks like he might have suffered a significant knee injury that could potentially end his season depending the outcome of MRI results.

But one thing is for sure, there is still some hope for this team to reach the postseason. But will the good luck continue to ride for them, that's the big question.
