We give our NY Jets’ predictions for the 2020 season now just a couple of days away from kickoff.
The NY Jets are just two days away from kicking off their 2020 season. An unusual offseason has come and gone and we’re just about 48 hours from the start of what is sure to be an equally unusual regular season.
After somehow pulling off a 7-9 season a year ago, many Jets fans have the playoffs on their minds as the team looks to snap its near-decade-long postseason drought.
But it might take more than an expanded playoff field for the Jets to truly push for a playoff spot.
The reality is that few teams enter the 2020 season with lower expectations than the Jets. The roster, as a whole, still has its fair share of weaknesses, the coaching staff has a lot to prove, and their schedule won’t do them any favors.
There are reasons to doubt the Jets in 2020, but as we’ve seen in the past, anything could happen in this sport. Who saw the Jets finishing 6-2 last year after a 1-7 start? Who saw the 3-13 San Francisco 49ers surging to the Super Bowl the following season?
Unpredictable things happen all the time in sports and maybe just this one time, the Jets will serve as beneficiaries of that unpredictability.
There are varied viewpoints on just how well the Jets will fare in 2020. Some have their sights set on a playoff run while others are a bit more pessimistic.
That’s why we asked our staff here at The Jet Press to give their final predictions for the upcoming season including taking a stab at what the team’s record could be.
Let’s take a look at what a few of us had to say.
