2. The NY Jets could upset the defending AFC Champions in Week 3

The Jets have a rough, rough start to the season, with the very tough AFC North as their first four opponents, but after upsetting the Cincinnati Bengals back in 2021, the much improved Jets could be able to do it again this season too.

New York now possess a much deeper wide receiver group, an improved offensive line as well as one of the best running back and tight end groups in the AFC, including former Bengal C.J. Uzomah.

The Jets matchup quite well against the Bengals, and if the improvements many expect from the Jets young players come to fruition, this could simply be a great case of the Jets having the Bengals number.

3. The NY Jets could upset this division rival in Week 8

While the New England Patriots have tortured most teams in the NFL over the past 20 years, it's been especially hard on the Jets, and after a four-interception game a year ago, you know that Zach Wilson will be out to show he's different to other young Jets QB's.

Very few young QBs have any type of success against the Patriots, but the Jets now match up very well against them, with talent all over the field, and if the team can have some confidence left after a brutal stretch to start the year, it's a very possible upset at MetLife.

We've seen a few Jets upsets of the Patriots over the years, and they're always sweet for New York fans, and if Robert Saleh, Joe Douglas and Zach Wilson are to prove they're any different to past teams, this is one demon they must slay at least once this year.
