The New York Jets will kick-off their 2019 season this Sunday when the team takes on the Buffalo Bills. Here is everything you need to know ahead of Week 1.
The New York Jets are mere hours away from the start of what is expected to be one of their most anticipated seasons in quite some time.
The Jets will kick off their 2019 season in style when they play host to their division rivals, the Buffalo Bills in this Week 1 AFC East matchup.
Buffalo is coming off a 6-10 season in which they handed the reigns to quarterback Josh Allen to lead the offense. While raw, Allen has looked promising and the team will be looking for a big sophomore year from their young signal-caller.
Interestingly enough, the Jets are in a similar situation as their division foes with second-year quarterback Sam Darnold returning under center. With the offseason additions of Le’Veon Bell, Jamison Crowder, and Kelechi Osemele, Darnold should have a much-improved supporting cast.
But will it be enough to translate into increased on-field success? And more specifically, will it be enough to carry the Jets to victory in Week 1?
We should soon be able to find out.

This game will be the first of new head coach Adam Gase’s Jets career. It will also mark the first game of Joe Douglas’ tenure as the team’s general manager.
After four years of Todd Bowles and Mike Maccagnan calling the shots, the team will be looking to this game as the start of a new era in Jets football.
Elsewhere, we will see first-round defensive linemen Quinnen Williams and Ed Oliver make their debuts. Could either interior rusher make an impact in Week 1 or will they be stimied by two offensive lines hoping for major improvements in 2019?
The last time these two teams met up, Darnold and the Jets led a fourth-quarter comeback to secure the 27-23 victory back in early December. To date, it is the last regular-season game that the team has won.
The Bills will be looking for retribution while the Jets will be looking to establish their new team identity with a big win in Week 1.
Who will emerge as the victors? Only one way to find out.
