4. The new look Denver Broncos will be tough to stop in Week 7
Following a road trip to Lambeau Field, the Jets will then trek all the way to Denver, to battle the Broncos and their new-look offense, led by the phenomenal Russell Wilson.
For the past few years, this squad has needed a QB to take the next step, and while they'll now have to battle three other elite-level teams in the AFC West, led by a former Super Bowl MVP, they can be just as good as any other team in the NFL.
Individually, the Broncos don't have much top-tier talent at the skill positions on the offensive side of the ball, but with so much talent from top to bottom, being led by Wilson, this group will be hard to stop all year long.
5. The NY Jets will need to stop Josh Allen not once, but twice in 2022
The Jets have had to sit back and watch the Patriots dominate the AFC East for the past 20 years, but after seeing Tom Brady leave for the NFC, it's given rise to a new power — one that is led by perennial MVP candidate, Josh Allen.
His combination of strength, skill, and pure talent is unmatched in today's NFL, and with the chemistry he and Stefon Diggs possess, it will be tough for even the best of the best defensive units in the league to stop in 2022.
Being a division rival, the Jets will have the unenviable task of slowing the Bills' juggernaut down not once but twice. It's these tough division matchups that may hold the Jets back from breaking through to being a playoff-level team in 2022.
