"I wouldn't mind being the team that puts a dent in somebody else's armor," Spikes said. "If I'm going to sit home, they are going to sit home with me. There is an old saying, "misery loves company."
Jets safety Victor Green guaranteed the Jets are going to make the playoffs. If that is going to happen, the Jets need to beat the Bengals.
"That is the way the are supposed to think, but coming from Takeo and the rest of the Bengals, we have a lot people sitting at home with us," Spikes said. "Everybody is on their edge – they really can't lose two games. Everyone is chalking it up like they are going to win when they play the Bengals. Good ahead on sleep on it because misery loves company. We can sit at home together and watch it.
"That's fine man. I have a lot of respect for Victor. That is the way they are supposed to think. Don't sleep on it. If you sleep, you are going to be dreaming in January watching the playoffs with us." While the Bengals are 4-8, most of their loses have been close. "Look at all the games we played late," Spikes said. "It's not like anyone is blowing us out. Every game we lost, we lost in the last couple of minutes."
Notes: Aaron Glenn (knee) will sit out his second straight game . . . Santana Moss is questionable with a quad strain . . . Richie Anderson (wrist) has been upgraded to probable.
