It’s the end of April, and in the world of the NFL, that can only mean one thing…the NFL schedule has been released!!
For the New York Jets, it’s the beginning of another year filled with false hope that the team will finally win a Super Bowl for the first time since 1969.
Without further ado, here is the New York Jets 2014 regular season schedule:
The good news is week 1 isn’t too bad. The Jets get to face the Oakland Raiders at home, but after that…it gets scary…at Aaron Rogers, Jay Cutler, and Matt Stafford in 3 consecutive weeks. Gang Green’s pass defense is a major question mark at this time, and those 3 quarterbacks love to chuck it around.
Oh, it gets worse. The Jets then have to fly across the country to take on a resurgent San Diego Chargers team before playing Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in a 4-day span. Thanks NFL schedule makers. That was kind.
New York’s final 3 games before the bye come against Buffalo (not too bad), Kansas City, and Pittsburgh.
If the Jets can stay afloat, meaning (5-5) at the bye, then you can start thinking this team may actually make the playoffs.
That’s because the schedule the rest of the way comes against the Bills, Dolphins twice, Vikings, Titans, and Patriots at home. Divisional games are always tough, but nowhere near as tough as the Jets schedule in the first half of the season.
From now until September 7th, people will continuously predict how their teams will do. It’s the beauty of the NFL.
The Jets have three scheduled prime-time games:
- Week 3 Monday Night Football against the Bears
- Week 7 on a Thursday night in Foxborough
- Week 13 Monday Night Football against the Dolphins
On another note, Flex scheduling now begins in week 5 as opposed to week 11. So from week 5 through the rest of the season, be prepared for the NFL to alter your plans without regard for you or your family.
Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?!?!
