“That’s a tough one. If you’re eliminated from the playoffs, you don’t really have any pressure, right? So, you play loose and you make a mistake, yeah, it sucks, but it’s not the end of the world. It’s not going to cost the team much. I don't know if it's been one of those things where it's holding us back, per se. Obviously, now every game is pretty much a must-win. We have to go on a good heater and then hope we get some help. But, yeah, maybe it’s become a little bit of a factor. It's tough to say. Everyone's going out there and wanting to win so bad for one another. They don’t want to let guys down; you don’t want to make the mistake that’s the difference in the game. So, maybe a little bit, but we can’t let that mindset creep in. We just got to focus on the next one, as cliché as that is, and really start building from there. We’ve got a couple days now to rest after a pretty hectic schedule, and we got to beat some pretty good teams coming up here.”

Jets Head Coach Dave Lowry said his club's approach has to be simple.

"You get pressure every night. The biggest thing that we have to do and you know, it's a cliche, it's whatever, but we have to win our next game. We can't look at having to win out. We can't look at what lays ahead. We have to worry about the next game. We'll take tomorrow, we'll reset, we'll come back Monday, we'll get back to work, we'll get ready for our next game, and that's the mindset that we've had to keep. We've put ourselves in this position and you have to give yourself a chance by winning your games," he said.
