Despite the team's 1-6 start, New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker remains optimistic about the team's chances to win the AFC East.

"I really feel like this is a good football team," said Decker, via Will Robinson of "We're just not there yet and we just need to get that momentum, have a snowball effect, win that one game, play better as a team and see what happens. But I really do feel like we're still in it."

Sitting four games behind the division-leading New England Patriots heading into play on Sunday, even the most dedicated of Jets fans might be raising an eyebrow. However, five of the Jets' final nine games do come inside of the division.

"If we can string some games together," Decker added, "we know we have a chance."

The Jets' 1-6 opening to the 2014 campaign is their worst start since 2007. The Jets finished 4-12 that year.
