Asterisked games are subject to NFL flexible scheduling

Our thoughts:

Three out of the final four weeks are on the road, which could be tough, although road games for the Jets under Rex Ryan have not been a big deal.

For the third consecutive season, the Jets will be involved in at least 4 primetime games.

The Jets have a reunion with Brian Schottenheimer week 11, which could be interesting.

The road schedule isn’t that bad, especially in the second half, with games against the Seahawks, Rams and Jaguars.

Week 12 could prove to be a very important game, with our friends the Pats coming to Met Life that night.

Just an aside, they start and end with the Bills, just found that interesting.
