The Jets' Super Bowl odds have taken a nosedive after quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.

Those odds have tanked despite a comeback 22-16 win in overtime against the Bills on Monday night.

In the overall NFL hierarchy, the Jets have deteriorated from seventh-best favorites to 20th-best favorites, according to odds from FanDuel.

The Jets had been +1600 — tied with the Lions, who were coming off of a statement, opening night victory at the Chiefs.

Now, the Jets are +6500, with worse odds than the Saints (+2300), Vikings (+4000), Falcons (+4000), Packers (+4200), Seahawks (+4700), Steelers (+4900) and Broncos (+5500).

It's relatively intuitive, but for reference on how much the market is factoring in Rodgers' injury, take the Chiefs, Bengals or Bills' odds. Despite Week 1 losses by all three of the AFC's top contenders, their odds barely budged. Meanwhile, the Jets have fallen from that mix into an abyss filled with fringe playoff candidates and rebuilding squads.

It stands to reason, by the way, that eliminating the Jets as a threat has helped stabilize Chiefs, Bengals and Bills odds throughout the marketplace.
