Jets’ playoff hopes slide away again with 5th straight loss

SEATTLE (AP) — The lengthy slide of the New York Jets finally reached the bottom. From legitimate playoff contenders barely a month ago, to yet another postseason spent at home as a spectator. New York was eliminated from the postseason after a 23-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, ensuring that for the 12th straight season the Jets won’t be part of the NFL playoffs, the longest active drought in the league. The Jets (7-9) last reached the postseason in 2011 and will finish with a losing record for the seventh straight season. New York quarterback Mike White returned after missing two games with fractured ribs, but threw two interceptions in a shaky performance.
