Well, we may have just finished up the 2013 proceedings, but it is never too early to look ahead to 2014. Especially since the Jets’ opponents for 2014 have been announced. Here they are, excluding the AFC East: Home:Denver, Kansas City, Chicago, Detroit, and Pittsburgh, Away: Oakland, Green Bay, San Diego, Minnesota, and Tennessee.

It’s not the easiest schedule in the world, granted. But, believe it or not, it is a schedule worthy of a team that finished second in its division, and that is what the Jets did. Their 8-8 record was good for second place in the AFC East, and the schedule noted above.

The idea of Peyton Manning coming to town is not one that is an exciting prospect, other than the chance to watch him play up close. To be honest, all of those out of division opponents are difficult. The Raiders had their moments of improved play during 2013, although they are clearly the softest of this group of opponents,along with the Vikings.

John Idzik and company will have a lot to work with to improve this team, and they will get the chance to show what they are made of with this home schedule.
