Thoughts on the New York Jets 2014 schedule

See also

On Wednesday night the National Football League released the schedule for the 2014 season. The announcement is always an exciting time as fans instantly go into prediction mode trying to find ways to justify their team making the playoffs. Here is a look at the New York Jets schedule with some thoughts on the opponents. I will save my predictions for the preseason as I want to see what John Idzik does in the draft and the remainder of free agency before making my educated guess.

Preseason

8/9 Thursday Indianapolis 7:00 p.m.

8/17 Saturday at Cincinnati 7:00 p.m.

8/24 Friday NY Giants 7:30 p.m. -- Will there be "Snoopy Bowl" drama this year?

8/29 Thursday at Philadelphia 7:00 p.m. -- Sanchez vs. Vick?

Regular Season

9/7 Sunday Oakland 1:00 p.m. -- The new look Raiders featuring Matt Schaub and MJD. Must win?

9/14 Sunday at Green Bay 4:25 p.m. -- Great early test for Dee Milliner and Rex's revamped defense.

9/22 Monday Chicago 8:30 p.m. -- A strong Bears team will challenge Gang Green.

9/28 Sunday Detroit 1:00 p.m. -- The Lions could be much improved in 2014.

10/5 Sunday at San Diego 4:25 p.m. -- A tough road game after 3 physical opponents.

10/12 Sunday Denver 1:00 p.m. -- On paper Denver is one of the best teams in the NFL.

10/16 Thursday at New England 8:25 p.m. -- This is a brutal turnaround game for the Jets.

10/26 Sunday Buffalo 1:00 p.m. -- This game already smells of a letdown week.

11/2 Sunday at Kansas City 1:00 p.m. -- One of the toughest places to play in the the NFL.

11/9 Sunday Pittsburgh 1:00 p.m. -- Will MetLife turn into Steeler Country again?

BYE WEEK

11/23 Sunday at Buffalo 1:00 p.m.* -- An opponent that the Jets will have to beat.

12/1 Monday Miami 8:30 p.m. -- Could be an important game for playoff tiebreakers.

12/7 Sunday at Minnesota 1:00 p.m.* -- Who will be quarterbacking the Vikings?

12/14 Sunday at Tennessee 4:05 p.m.* -- A place/team of horrors for the Jets recently.

12/21 Sunday New England 1:00 p.m.* -- Welcome back Revis, again.

12/28 Sunday at Miami 1:00 p.m.* -- A huge division match-up. Playoffs on the line?

The first 8 games of the season will dictate a lot for the New York Jets as they play some outstanding opponents. The Packers, Bears, and Lions are quality teams while the Broncos and Patriots could be tops in the AFC. Of course the NFL did the Jets no favors playing New England on a short week after Denver. As for the stretch run 4 out of the 6 games are on the road. If Gang Green wants to make a bid at a playoff spot their road woes must be addressed.
