While the New York Jets were the talk of the football world thanks to their dominating Week 1 performance, let’s take the season one week at a time, shall we?

Trust me when I say that the last week of being a New York Jets fan has felt pretty sweet. After a dominating performance in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions, the Jets were easily the talk of the football world. From how great Sam Darnold played to the huge expectations being met by linebacker Darron Lee, it’s been a fun past few days.

In the grand scheme of things, however, it’s just one week of football. Yes, the Jets won their first game of the season on the road against a potential playoff-caliber team, but that doesn’t mean anything. For all we know, the jury is still out on what kind of Jets team we have on our hands in 2018.

Could the Jets simply be that good of a team to have beaten such a worthy opponent? Could the Lions just be a terrible team that is headed into dark times? Was the 48-17 epic win over the Lions just a fluke as they’ll get exposed faster than a New York minute over the next few games?

That is why even now, as a Jets fan of over two decades can tell you, it’s always best to take the season one week at a time. Head coach Todd Bowles preaches about this almost every season just because one big win now doesn’t mean anything later. For all we know, the Jets could get dropped in front of their home crowd on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

The Jets are a hungry and young team playing with not only a big chip on their shoulder but with a whole lot to prove. The foundation is almost completely built to make a serious playoff run in the future but it’s all about keeping expectations real and knowing there is still a lot of football games left to be played.

For now, though, this is a great moment for the team and fans as winning fixes everything. Let’s just calm down the early thoughts of a playoff berth or a Super Bowl run in 2018, shall we? We all want it but it still remains to be seen if this team is capable of such huge expectations.
