Schedule release day has finally arrived, and we now know how the New York Jets’ slate will look for the 2019 regular season.
This year’s schedule is highlighted by a pair of Monday Night Football appearances, both at home, against the Cleveland Browns (Week 2) and New England Patriots (Week 7). In Week 15, the Jets will make yet another appearance on national television, this time on the road against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Jets will open the 2019 season at home against the Buffalo Bills, and will close out the season with a road trip to Orchard Park.
One big advantage for the Jets this season will be a relatively short travel schedule for road games, as two-week trip to the Sunshine State to face the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins represents the farthest they’ll travel from home this year.
The Jets will also be playing just five of their 16 games against teams that made the postseason last year, giving them a promising road to a potential playoff run for themselves.
Perhaps the least enticing part of the schedule is the bye week, as the Jets drew an early one in Week 4 this season.
