The NY Jets are set to kick off their 2020 season against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.
The NY Jets enter the 2020 season with very different expectations from a year ago. While the majority of fans were hoping for a playoff push in 2019, many are just pleading to stay afloat a year later.
Following a 7-9 season, you would assume that this wouldn’t be the case. But a quick glance at the roster and the upcoming schedule tells you everything you need to know.
Their Week 1 opponents, the Buffalo Bills, on the other hand, have sky-high aspirations in 2020. After a standout 10-6 season a year ago, the Bills look new and improved and ready to take the AFC by storm.
A near-complete roster has few holes, but the team will need consistently good quarterback play from one Josh Allen to truly make some noise as contenders. They too have their question marks, but their expectations are most certainly higher.
But in reality, none of this matters come Week 1. Both teams enter the game 0-0 in search of their first victory of the new year. And in many ways, this Week 1 matchup could set the tone for the rest of the season.
The Jets are looking for revenge after last year’s Week 1 meltdown that saw the team blow a 16-point second-half lead. Meanwhile, the Bills are out to prove that they’re the team to beat in the AFC East and avoid what could be a disastrous loss to their division rivals.
Division games are always impossible to predict, so we should be in store for a good matchup later today. But who will emerge victorious? Which team will come away with a win in their first game of what is sure to be a unique 2020 season?
