This is false. The Colts did not lay down for the Jets to make the playoffs. They laid down to rest their starters and get healthy. The Jets happened to be the fortunate opponent that week, but they still had to beat the Bengals the following week (who also rested some starters).
It wasn't about wanting the Jets to make the playoffs, it was about wanting the Colts to be healthy and rested when it was time for the playoffs.
