New York Jets coach Todd Bowles acknowledged this week that his team has to sweep the final three games of the season to reach the postseason.

The competition is stiff for the AFC’s two wild-card spots. Riding a seven-game winning streak, the Kansas City Chiefs are the “hottest team in football.” Racking up yards at a historic rate over the past five weeks, the Pittsburgh Steelers are the hottest offense in football.

Fortunately for Bowles, he travels to Dallas to face a reeling Cowboys squad on its longest home losing streak since 1989. Here’s what we’ll be watching for jj watt womens jersey in Saturday’s showdown between the Jets and Cowboys, airing exclusively on NFL Network:

1. After watching six years of Rex Ryan’s ground ‘n’ pound attack set offensive football back to the early 1970s, it’s refreshing to see Chan Gailey’s spread attack this season. Ryan Fitzpatrick has already won more games and thrown more touchdown passes than in any season over the past decade of his career. Believed by many to be a backup-caliber quarterback masquerading as a starter, Fitzpatrick ranks a respectable 15th in Gregg Rosenthal’s QB Index after 13 games. He has nine touchdowns without an interception since shaving his beard on Nov. 25.

If the Steelers boast the NFL’s most explosive wide receiver corps, the Jets might have the most reliable duo. Since 2012, Brandon Marshall Jerseys’s 42 touchdowns rank second only to Dez Bryant Jerseys’s 43. Third place on the list? Eric Decker’s 38 touchdowns. They each have a touchdown reception in seven different games this season, joining Randy Moss and Cris Carter on the 1998 Vikings as the only set of teammates to pull off that feat.

Not so coincidentally, the Jets rank third in red-zone efficiency, converting 68.2 percent of their red-zone possessions into touchdowns.

2. The Packers rushed for 230 yards versus the Cowboys last week, their most since January of 2008. That would seem to bode well for Chris Ivory, who has gotten his season back on track the past three games. Dallas’ run defense isn’t abysmal. They simply gave out in the fourth quarter at Green Bay after doing the heavy lifting for an offense that can’t muster up sustained drives to stay on the field. For what it’s worth, the Jets are 5-0 when rushing for at least 130 yards this season.

3. The decline of Darrelle Revis has been greatly exaggerated. Although DeAndre Hopkins Jerseys burned him for four receptions, 98 yards and a touchdown on eight targets, Revis has held each of Sammy Watkins Jerseys, Allen Robinson, Amari Cooper, T.Y. Hilton and Jarvis Landry to 50 yards or fewer in their matchups.

He’s drawing Dez Bryant Jerseys at the ideal time. Not yet 100 percent recovered from an early-season foot injury, Bryant has been unable to overcome subpar quarterbacking. Bryant is averaging career-worst marks across the board, at jj watt womens jersey 3.4 receptions, 43.9 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. Perhaps most telling, Dallas quarterbacks have generated a 56.0 passer rating on throws in Bryant’s direction — the lowest rating of 83 qualifying receivers, per Pro Football Focus.

4. If you’re a fan of flashy offensive line play, keep an eye on Cowboys rookie guard La’el Collins, who loves to get out in front of Darren McFadden and pancake-block unsuspecting linebackers and defensive backs. Running stride for stride with McFadden last week, Collins reached 18.25 mph after flattening and out-running Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jerseys.

5. The Jets have an impressive rookie of their own in defensive end Leonard Williams, who has 10 more quarterback hits than any other rookie on defense this season. In Williams, Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Damon Harrison, the Jets have a glut of talent up front — responsible for their first-place rank in run defense (78.9 yards per game) and first-down percentage (17.1).

Every year since 2011, hundreds of NFL players have filled out ballots to determine a collective opinion on the very best in their business. Now we get to see the results of that voting with The Top 100 Players Of 2016 countdown on NFL Network.

Last year, Texans star J.J. Watt claimed the top spot, making him the first defensive player to do so. Will Watt repeat the feat in 2016? If not, you can assume the reigning Defensive Player of the Year will find a snug spot in the top 10.

Who else will crack the countdown? Before players 100-91 are revealed Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network, let’s make some predictions about how this list will look different than what we saw a year ago.

One thing we can tell you with no threat of condemnation from a Shadowy League Figure: There are four definite openings on this list as Peyton Manning (No. 5), Calvin Johnson (No. 6), Marshawn Lynch (No. 9) and Charles Woodson (No. 64) trade the gridiron for the couch on Sundays. Beyond that, my guess is as good as yours.

Let’s get on with it.

RISERS

Odell Beckham Jr. (32), Aaron Donald (92), Larry Fitzgerald Jerseys (68), Khalil Mack (49), Brandon Marshall (57), Von Miller (33), Adrian Peterson (62), Cam Newton (73)

Cam is going top 10 after his MVP masterpiece. Miller should join him after what he did to Cam in the Super Bowl. … All Day tumbled last year on the heels of his season-long punishment for domestic abuse, but he should return to his rightful place in the top 10 after yet another rushing title. … Brandon Marshall has always been underrated, but having the best season by a wide receiver in Jets history should bump him a few spots. … Fitzgerald is universally respected, but he returned to being a superstar producer in 2015. … Beckham, Donald and Mack are the future of their respective positions.

FALLERS

Justin Forsett Jerseys (65), Arian Foster (80), Jimmy Graham (31), nfl custom jerseys Brent Grimes (38), Eddie Lacy (60), DeMarco Murray (4), Darren Sproles (81), Julius Thomas (45), Mario Williams Jerseys (42), Jason Witten (93)

Foster and Graham suffered serious leg injuries that put their future in some doubt. … Ranking Forsett and Sproles so highly a year ago was perhaps a charitable act. … Lacy is probably the best bet of this group to find himself back on this list in 2017, though that might be ultimately up to the P90X gods. … Murray, Williams and Witten all performed like players in decline in 2015. Witten has made this list five straight years — we’d be shocked if he went six for six.

NEWCOMERS

Blake Bortles, NaVorro Bowman, Kirk Cousins, Karlos Dunlap, Todd Gurley, Sean Lee, DeAndre Hopkins, Josh Norman, Doug Martin, Tyrann Mathieu Jerseys, Carson Palmer Jerseys, Marcus Peters, Allen Robinson

I know what you’re thinking. There’s no way all these guys were overlooked on the 2015 list. But this stuff goes on every single year on the Top 100. Sometimes — in the case of Bowman, Lee and Palmer — an established star falls off the grid due to an injury. Other times — as is the case with Bortles, nfl custom jerseys Cousins, Hopkins and Robinson — a young player explodes in their development. Then there’s the vets who have something click suddenly and reach their full potential — Dunlap, Martin and Norman are fine examples.

Every one of these guys deserves to be in the Top 100, but that doesn’t mean they will be. We’ll find out over the next couple of months starting Wednesday.
