The NY Jets 2020 schedule has officially been revealed in full. We take a look at which games could be the hardest, easiest, and most important.
The NY Jets 2020 schedule has officially been released. After a long couple of days of waiting filled with speculation aplenty, we now finally know the order of the Jets’ 2020 opponents.
It was reported earlier in the day by Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News that the Jets would be taking on the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park to begin their season.
This marks the third time in four years that the two teams will meet in Week 1, and the Jets will certainly have revenge on their minds after last season’s Week 1 meltdown.
But what about the team’s other opponents? Let’s take a look at the complete 2020 schedule.
— New York Jets (@nyjets) May 7, 2020
- Week 1: Sunday, Sept. 13 at Bills (1 PM, CBS)
- Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 20 vs. 49ers (1 PM, FOX)
- Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 27 at Colts (4 PM, CBS)
- Week 4: Thursday, Oct. 1 vs. Broncos (8:20 PM, NFL Network)
- Week 5: Sunday, Oct. 11 vs. Cardinals (1 PM, FOX)
- Week 6: Sunday, Oct. 18 at Chargers (4 PM, CBS)
- Week 7: Sunday, Oct. 25 vs. Bills (1 PM CBS)
- Week 8: Sunday, Nov. 1 at Chiefs (1 PM CBS)
- Week 9: Monday, Nov. 9 vs. Patriots (8:15 PM, ESPN)
- Week 10: Sunday, Nov. 15 at Dolphins (4 PM, CBS)
- Week 11: BYE
- Week 12: Sunday, Nov. 29 vs. Dolphins (1 PM, CBS)
- Week 13: Sunday, Dec. 6 vs. Raiders (1 PM, CBS)
- Week 14: Sunday, Dec. 13 at Seahawks (4 PM, CBS)
- Week 15: Dec. 19 or 20 at Rams (TBD)
- Week 16: Dec. 26 or 27 vs. Browns (TBD)
- Week 17: Sunday, Jan. 3 at Patriots (1 PM, CBS)
For those keeping score at home, that’s two primetime games — a Week 4 Thursday Night Football meeting with the Denver Broncos and a Week 9 Monday Night Football matchup with the New England Patriots, both at home.
Perhaps the oddest stretch of games comes from Week 10 to Week 12 where the team first takes on the Miami Dolphins on the road, has their bye week, and then returns home to once again play the Dolphins.

The Jets will also finish their season playing three of their last four games on the road including a final Week 17 matchup with the dreaded Patriots.
Gang Green will also participate in two West Coast matchups in consecutive weeks taking on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14 before staying out west to battle the Los Angeles Rams the following week.
After not leaving the Eastern Time Zone once in 2019, the Jets will have four games in different time zone this season.
Altogether, the Jets seem to have a pretty tough schedule on paper. But you never truly know how things will go until the season gets underway.
Until then, all we could do is continue to speculate.
