How Braylon Edwards Could Help the Jets In the Playoffs

The New York Jets are gearing up for what they hope is a postseason run, and claimed WR Braylon Edwards off waivers. He was cut by the Seattle Seahawks last week.

The Jets’ passing weapons could be without Stephen Hill and TE Dustin Keller on Sunday, and are not going to get Santonio Holmes back. However, – when Hill plays – they will only need to get mediocre performances in both the Mark Sanchez passing game and in the pass protection as the run game has taken off recently and the WR corps will be the best it’s been in awhile.

The Jets have run for 119 or more rushing yards in four consecutive weeks – ground and pound – and are going up against an 9-loss Titans team, 8-loss Chargers team, and 9-loss Bills team to close out the season (the Jets beat the Bills 48-28 at the start of the season).

To reach the postseason for the third time in four years under head coach Rex Ryan, they would also need the Bengals to lose one game (@ PIT, vs. BAL) and the Steelers to lose two (@ DAL, vs. CIN, vs. CLE).

Braylon really has the mix of size, speed, and vet experience the Jets have been craving. He also has preexisting chemistry with Sanchez.
