New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow risked the wrath of his own fans with an AFC Championship game prediction that didn’t involve his paymasters.

The 30-year-old has played just five games for Rex Ryan’s side this season, scoring two touchdowns off 17 receptions for just 169 yards.

At 5-7, the pundits aren’t predicting the Jets will make the play-offs, let alone the Championship game. However, it seems a little early for one of the team’s own players to start writing off their chances.

"I got the Pats vs Broncos in AFC championship and Panthers vs Seahawks in NFC championship," he Tweeted in a now-deleted post, according to the New York Post.

Putting the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots into an AFC title game isn’t exactly rocket science, with the pair holding the best records in the division alongside the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the NFC, the Seahawks and Panthers hold the best records alongside the New Orleans Saints – who took a beating in Seattle last week.

As for the Jets, they are in the battle for the final wildcard spot with a host of other teams. Miami, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and San Diego also have a chance of making it to January.

Winslow obviously doesn’t fancy their chances.
