Breaking Down the New York Jets’ 2014 Schedule: Quarter Two


Let’s continue, as always, our early look at the 2014 schedule for the New York Jets. We break it down by quarter, looking at it four games at a time.

Yesterday, we took a look at quarter number one.  The season started out, as we saw, with some tough games.  Let’s see how the second quarter of the season looks:

WEEK FIVE: AT CHARGERS
WEEK SIX: VS BRONCOS
WEEK SEVEN: AT PATRIOTS
WEEK EIGHT: VS BILLS

Heck, this schedule doesn’t get any easier. You would think that this team went 12-4 last year with this schedule, not 8-8.

The Jets could win all of these games, or they could lose them all. Obviously, the most winnable is the game against Buffalo. Yes, they have to play the game, but on paper, the Jets have the better team. The additions of Eric Decker and Chris Johnson make the Jets’ offense more than formidable, and the defense can get to the Bills’ QB. The Jets should be favored in that one.

The other three games, two of them on the road? Well, they are a different story. As tough stretches go, this one takes the cake. Having to battle Rivers, Manning, and Brady in consecutive weeks is no easy task for anyone. But, as with any team, pressure on the QB could lead to any one of these teams going down. We did it to Brady once, and nearly twice, just last season.

Any game is winnable, that’s why they play. It’s just that some are tougher than others. This is what we have here.

So, the Jets could enjoy great success in this quarter, or they could be 2-6 by the end of it. We shall see.

    I can see the Jets at 3-5 or worse after eight games. I believe it will be better in the second half, but they seem always afraid of Pittsburgh, so even if they are the better team they will probably lose. The Jets could be better than last year and NOT have a better record. This schedule is brutal.

      Very brutal. Like I said in the article, you would think the team was 12-4 last year with the schedule they were given.
