Four Jets Games to Look Forward to in 2012
It’s that time of year. The schedule for 2012 has been released, and we all start to handicap it. What are the biggest games to watch? Some could argue that with only 16, that answer is all of them. Here are four that we are looking forward to:
WEEK 1: VS BUFFALO
A couple of reasons why this one is important. First and foremost, it is week one. We all know what happened at the end of 2011, all of the problems. What we need to know is, are they changed? Is the team harmony different? They need to get of to a good start.
Secondly, we will see right away how good the offensive line is. The new look Buffalo Bills rush will be led by one Mario Williams. Williams vs the Jets will be an interesting battle to watch.
WEEK 4: VS 49ERS
Looking forward to this one, because these are two teams that are built similarly. Both are set up for good defense and to work from the running game. Our running game will be re-emphasized by Tony Sparano. We know how good the 49ers are, we saw it last year. This one should be fun.
WEEK 5: VS TEXANS
We step into our first of at least 4 primetime games with this one, as the Texans come into town. This will be good offense against good defense and should just simply be fun to watch. A healthy Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson, against the Jets defense. Some regard the Texans as the frontrunners in the AFC, so this will be a true test.
THANKSGIVING NIGHT: VS PATRIOTS
Not a lot to be said here. We always have a tough game when we play these guys. But here, national stage, holiday night, could be for position in the AFC east. It always is big, and this will be no exception.
