It has become a national holiday, when the NFL schedule is OFFICIALLY released and it allows the fans to play the BEST game in the preseason. It is a little PREMATURE to be playing the WIN-LOSS game with the Jets without knowing how they are going to do in the Draft later this week, but this game is NOT for the intellectuals. I have all SIXTEEN games of the Jets’ schedule and TRIED to predict the games being UNBIASED, even though I know they are going 0-16 this season.
Week 1: Monday Night- ROAD at Detriot Lions
The Jets start their season on the road at Ford Field in Detroit, against a Lions team that ALWAYS has HIGH expectations but they FAIL every season. The Lions have one of the BEST quarterbacks in football in Matt Stafford, so the YOUNG Jets defense will be tested EARLY in the season. Whichever QB the Jets draft, will probably not be starting this game, and I expect the Jets offense to STRUGGLE in the absence of Robby Anderson, who is PROBABLY going to be suspended for this game.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (0-1)
Week 2: Sunday Afternoon- HOME vs Miami Dolphins
For the SECOND year in a row, the Dolphins will be the FIRST home game for the Jets who DOMINATE in their home openers. The Dolphins have a lot of UNCERTAINTY on offense, so the Jets should ROLL in this game under the VETERAN quarterback that they are starting.
Prediction- Jets WIN (1-1)
Week 3: Thursday Night- ROAD at Cleveland Browns
This game is the Super Bowl of TRASH, both teams are going to be the TWO worst teams in the NFL this season and the LOSER of this game will have the INSIDE track for the Number 1 pick in the 2019 Draft. This game is the FIRST Jets game after I can LEGALLY drink so if they LOSE this game, there is a good chance I will drink myself to DEATH.
Prediction- Jets WIN (2-1)
Week 4: Sunday Afternoon- ROAD at Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jets BEAT the Jags at HOME in Week 4 of last season, but this time, BOTH the location and the result of the game will be DIFFERENT. The Jags were ONE half away from going to the Super Bowl last season, while the Jets are TRASH. The Jets might start their ROOKIE quarterback in the next game if they LOSE in Jacksonville.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (2-2)
Week 5: Sunday Afternoon- HOME vs Denver Broncos
With their next THREE games at home, there is a POSSIBILITY that this game is start of a NEW era for the Jets with a NEW quarterback. The Jets will make their selection in the Draft on Thursday Night, but it is looking like it will be Baker Mayfield becoming the New York Jets quarterback of the FUTURE. This game is a GREAT soft spot to start a YOUNG quarterback against a WEAKER opponent like the Broncos.
Prediction- Jets WIN (3-2)
Week 6: Sunday Afternoon- HOME vs Indianapolis Colts
The Colts have been RAVAGED with injuries for the past FEW seasons but they are starting a NEW era in their regime this season, but we have NO idea if quarterback Andrew Luck is going to play this season. The Jets seem to look really good early in the season before their tires FALL OFF and I expect that trend to CONTINUE this season.
Prediction- Jets WIN (4-2)
Week 7: Sunday Afternoon- HOME vs Minnesota Vikings
Quarterback Kirk Cousins chose the Vikings over the Jets in Free Agency this offseason and he will come to Metlife Stadium and BEAT UP on the Jets. The Vikings were in the NFC Championship game last season, they are going to be the Super Bowl pick for MANY experts this season.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (4-3)
Week 8: Sunday Afternoon- ROAD at Chicago Bears
The Bears and the Jets are BOTH teams that are REBUILDING, but the Bears are slightly AHEAD in their process. It is really HARD to win games in Bear Weather, but the Jets SHOULD win this game if they want to go to playoffs.
Prediction- Jets WIN (5-3)
Week 9: Sunday Afternoon- ROAD at Dolphins
EVERY Year the Jets go to Miami with HIGH expectations for the season and their season falls apart after a soul CRUSHING loss in South Beach. The Dolphins are the same if not WORST then the Jets in terms of talent, so the Jets will find a way to loss this game and start a TAIL spin of their season.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (5-4)
Week 10: Sunday Afternoon- HOME vs Buffalo Bills
The Bills are going to be TRASH this season just like the Jets so this game is going to be really UGLY. Both teams SHOULD lose this game, but that is IMPOSSIBLE, the Jets will find a way to WIN and HURT their draft pick.
Prediction- Jets WIN (6-4)
Week 11: BYE
You win SOME and you lose SOME, unless if it is a BYE week in which you do NOT win or lose.
Week 12: Sunday Afternoon- HOME vs New England Patriots
According to me, the Jets will be TWO games over .500 going into the FIRST Pats game of this season and that is the BEST case scenario for the Jets. There is NO way that the Jets are going to win this game, but they can use this game as a BENCHMARK to see how far they are from the SUPREME team in the AFC East.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (6-5)
Week 13: Sunday LATE Afternoon- ROAD at Tennessee Titans
The Titans SURPRISED everyone and made the Playoffs last season, they have a really good running game which will give the Jets trouble in this game. The Jets losing the LATE Sunday game has given me MANY nightmares in the past, so OF COURSE they will lose this game to PISS ME OFF.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (6-6)
Week 14: Sunday Afternoon- ROAD at Bills
Buffalo in November is the WORST spot to RESURRECT your season with a YOUNG roster. I fully expect this game to be played in a FOOT of snow, another UGLY game is IMMINENT between these two games and it will come down to Special Teams in this game.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (6-7)
Week 15: Saturday LATE Afternoon- HOME vs Houston Texans
The Texans, if HEALTHY are going to be contending for the Playoffs this season so they will need to DESTROY the Jets to remain ALIVE. The Jets basically END their season with a LOSS in this game based on their next TWO games.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (6-8)
Week 16: Sunday Afternoon- HOME vs Green Bay Packers
If the Jets and the Packers played each other a HUNDRED the Jets MIGHT win ONE game on a late field goal. These TWO teams do NOT belong on the SAME field, the BEST case scenario for the Jets is that the Packers have ALREADY made the Playoffs by this game and they are RESTING their starters.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (6-9)
Week 17: Sunday Afternoon- ROAD at Patriots
This does not need to be said, but the Jets will be DESTROYED in this game and END their season on a DISAPPOINTING note.
Prediction- Jets LOSE (6-10)
Thus ENDS the Jets season, I think it will be another BAD season for them, if they draft a quarterback this week then there is some OPTIMISM for this team or else they will continue to be a DUMPSTER FIRE and fire EVERYONE in their Front Office.
