2. The NY Jets could see Pro Bowl berths for three players in 2022

The Jets have been relatively absent from the Pro Bowl in recent years with the notable exception of Jamal Adams, but with promising young players and good veterans on this team, there's a chance that three players rep New York at the Pro Bowl.

There's always a chance that Zach Wilson, Elijah Moore, or one of the other young guys makes a big push, but given their performances in 2021, the three names I have targeted are Laken Tomlinson, Quinnen Williams, and Alijah Vera-Tucker.

The accolades will come for the other young stars around this team, but given the talents these three have shown, combined with the overall improvements on the team around them, now is a breakout year for all, and they should be rewarded for that.

3. The NY Jets will win six games in an incredibly tough AFC

The Jets have improved quite a bit over the last two months, but unfortunately, so has the majority of the rest of the AFC. That will certainly affect how many wins this squad can come away with.

The Jets are a team to watch for when it comes to upset alerts, but it's unlikely they can match firepower with Baltimore, Buffalo, Tennessee, Denver, Los Angeles, Kansas City, and a few others. If they can compete hard and win the games they should win, however, this could be a very productive season.

It's not a great look on an organization when they are aiming for six wins, but given the state of the Jets due to the Mike Maccaganan era, this would be a huge building block for future, sustained success in the Big Apple.
