The Jets Early Schedule Could Bode Well for a Chance at a Successful Season

With the release of the 2019 NFL schedule, there’s a lot of fever right now about how teams are going to do coming out of the gate, as well as what teams are going to surprise.

The New York Jets are one of those teams. Coming off an awful 2018, the team will enter 2019 with a new coach, a new feature back in Le’Veon Bell, and even new uniforms.

Right now most bookmakers seems to have the Jets winning between 6-9 games, and while that’s a lot of leeway, that also means there’s some folks that think this team is going to turn it around this season.

In looking at the first four games (that’s a quarter for all of you that are not math majors) of the 2019 season, the Jets have some chances not only to make an impact, but also to get off to a fast start that could stake them to a solid 2019 with second-year quarterback Adam Gase.

Let’s take a quick look at the first four games for the Jets, and what impact they might be able to make in the first month of the 2019 NFL season.

Sept. 8: vs. Buffalo

Adam Gase will know the Bills better than most just from his time last season with the Miami Dolphins, and the excitement of playing at home could (and should) help the Jets get off to a quick start. The Bills have an up-and-coming second-year QB as well in Josh Allen, so this could be a fun opener to take in at Met Life Stadium.

Sept. 16: vs. Cleveland

It seems like the Cleveland Browns, who two seasons ago didn’t win a game, are the darlings of the NFL this season, getting a ton of press and a number of prime-time games. They added one of the biggest names in the league in Odell Beckham Jr., and many think they will be the winners of the AFC North in 2019. Again playing at home the Jets have a shot to make an early statement.

Sept. 22: at New England

The Super Bowl champions usually play a clunker in the first month of the season, and for the Jets here’s hoping that the week three game will be that clunker. It’s never easy to play in New England, but if the Jets can hang in for at least the first three quarters and make plays in the fourth, you just never know.

Oct. 6: at Philadelphia

The Jets will head on the road in week four against the Philadelphia Eagles, a team that won the Super Bowl two years ago. The Eagles are an interesting team with QB Carson Wentz still trying to come back from a back injury, and again, the Jets might be able with some early success getting Bell going running the football to get off to a fast start, and again just being around in the fourth quarter could give this team the confidence to pull off a huge road win.
