The NFL released the schedule for all 32 NFL teams on Thursday night. Take a look at a breakdown of the NY Jets matchups this season.
On Thursday, the NFL released the regular-season schedule for the 2020 NFL season. We’ve known the NY Jets opponents since the end of the 2019 season, but now everything from order to game times is set in stone.
I was somewhat worried about the opponents when I first saw them. The Jets out-of-division foes this season are the NFC and AFC West, along with games against the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts that were decided by where the Jets finished in the standings.
It’s easy to break down opponents and try to pinpoint winnable and losable games, but now that we know exactly when the Jets will face off against each opponent, it brings everything more into focus.
The games against the West Coast teams in each conference are arguably the hardest they’ll have this season. From the Kansas City Chiefs to the San Francisco 49ers, there are some really tough opponents on the Jets 2020 schedule.
I wanted to take an in-depth look at where the Jets will travel this year and who they’ll play. Being able to take into account travel and the easy and tough stretches of opponents they’ll have will give us a better idea about how the season may play out when looking forward to September.
I won’t be making any predictions and will try to stray away from calling games winnable and losable. Nothing is guaranteed in the NFL. We have no clue how the season is going to play out.
We just have to take it one week at a time and hope for the best.
