First Quarter of the season

Ok, now that we have digested the schedule (5 primetime games), let’s look a little deeper.  Herm Edwards liked to separate the season into parts, so we will do the same. Breaking down the Jets 16 into 4 quarters, the goal is to go 3-1 (and ultimately 12-4).  This column will address the First Quarter of the season, or more appropriately, Division Time.

Division Time – First Quarter (Games 1-4)

1. Ravens on Monday Night.  Without needing to explain, this physical defensive opener is perfect for the Jets. Run the ball and hit the QB. Even if the passing game is not 100%, Defense wins early on.  Add a new stadium and a jacked up crowd, and the Jets will showcase their skills nationally.

2. Home to New England. Welcome to NY, Tom Brady. A good opportunity for the Jets to open 2-0 here. Last year, the Jets completely outplayed the Pats with the crowd being louder than ever before.  Look for the same here. Throw in an aging New England team and the Jets start 2-0.

3. At Miami.  Welcome back to Miami, Jason Taylor. Sunday Night, and the crowd will definitely show up for this one.  Miami opens up at Buffalo and at Minnesota so aside from probably being 1-1, this will be the first home game of the season. I like to split division games to give a more conservative record so the Dolphins take this one, leaving the Jets 2-1. Look for Mark Anthony and J.Lo to be cheering from a box at no particularly significant moment.

4. At Buffalo. Completing 3 straight division games, and without Santonio Holmes for these games, the Jets  face a Buffalo team that opens to Miami, at Green Bay and at New England. An 0-4 start would kill this team, so the Bills will be desperate.  Not sure if this will make a difference for them.  The Jets will look to redeem themselves from Week 3 and win, giving them a 3-1 record.
