The NY Jets are fresh off of a historic win in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. While the victory gave a confidence boost to the team and the fans, there are still questions the Jets need to answer as they head back to MetLife Stadium and take on the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Jets continue the course through the AFC North, facing the reigning 2021 AFC champions who are coming in at 0-2 in desperate need of a win.

This game back at home will be a good test to see how this young group under Robert Saleh responds to success, something that historically has not gone particularly well for the team over the past number of years.

With some help from famous movie quotes, let's take a look at a few of the questions that the Jets need to answer for their Week 3 matchup.
