I wasn’t going to do one of these game by game predictions, but the Jets beat writers such as Manish Mehta and Rich Cimini decided to do them, I decided to do my own. So here it is, my game my game prediction for the season
Week 1-Sunday, Sept. 9 — vs. Buffalo Bills, MetLife Stadium, 1 p.m-W
The Jets are initially surprised by the pass rush of the Bills, but in the end, the Jets hold on for a close victory.
Week 2-Sunday, Sept. 16 — at Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Field, 4:15 p.m.-L
In Pittsburgh, the Steelers are just too much for the Jets. It’s a close game, but the Steelers defense doesn’t let the Jets ground and pound attack to take over, and the Steelers win.
Week 3-Sunday, Sept. 23 — at Miami Dolphins, Sun Life Stadium, 1 p.m.-W
The Jets are able to take this one fairly easy. Whether it’s Ryan Tannehill at QB or it’s someone else, the Jets defense plays a huge game and wins going away.
Week 4-Sunday, Sept. 30 — vs. San Francisco 49ers, MetLife Stadium, 1 p.m.-W
This one might be a surprising pick to some, but I think the Jets take this one. I believe that the chemistry with the 49ers will be a bit off with the addition of Moss. This will be a battle of the defenses, but I believe the Jets edge out a close one.
Week 5-Monday, Oct. 8 — vs. Houston Texans, MetLife Stadium, 8:30 p.m.-L
In contrast, this one is easy for the Texans. Between Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson, and all their other offensive weapons, Rex Ryan’s crew has its hands full. The defense is not as good, so the Jets offense does see some success, but the Texans win this one going away.
Week 6-Sunday, Oct. 14 — vs. Indianapolis Colts, MetLife Stadium, 1 p.m.-W
Not a lot to say on this one. The Colts are rebuilding, but they won’t be rebuilt enough to take the Jets at Met Life. Jets win this one easy.
Week 7-Sunday, Oct. 21 — at New England Patriots, Gillette Stadium, 4:15 p.m.-L
The Jets go into this one at 4-2, but I don’t think they win, although they play well. Tim Tebow gets into some trouble with the wildcat, as the Patriots see blood when he’s out there. The Pats win by around 10 or so.
Week 8-Sunday, Oct. 28 — vs. Miami Dolphins, MetLife Stadium, 1 p.m.-W
The Jets complete the sweep of the Dolphins here at home, and go into the bye week at 5-3
Week 9-Sunday, Nov. 4 — Bye Week
