Many think the corner of Portage and Main will become Easy St. for a Jets playoff berth once realignment is adopted next season.

Many of the team's old foes will be in a seven-team, 85% Central time zone division. And with 14 teams in the Western Conference versus 16 in the East, that should increase post-season chances for the Jets, a team that made the playoffs once in a decade in Atlanta and is 0-for-1 here.
