These three NY Jets players will be must-watch in the season opener against the Buffalo Bills.
The NY Jets will kick off their regular season when they take on the Buffalo Bills later today. In a highly-anticipated divisional matchup, these two teams have a lot on the line as they look to start their season off with a victory.
The Jets enter as the obvious underdogs. After a surprising 7-9 season, head coach Adam Gase returns for his second season with the Jets looking to improve after a miserable 2019 season that saw his offense finish dead last in the NFL.
Gase will have a lot to prove in 2020, and so too will the Jets who will look to show that last season’s 6-2 finish was more than just a fluke. Unfortunately, a subpar roster and a difficult schedule could stand in their way.
That said, the Jets will return a number of players who they hope will carry the team to a second consecutive overachieving season. And against the Bills, they’ll need a few of those guys to step up.
Buffalo hosts one of the more complete rosters in the NFL with a stout defense and an offense without many glaring holes. Meanwhile, the Jets enter Week 1 beat up with multiple injuries further diminishing an overall weak roster.
An upset is certainly possible, but if that’s to be the case, they’re going to need these players to step up later today.
We take a look at three Jets players to watch in their Week 1 opener against the Bills.
