4. The NY Jets may struggle at a division rival in Week 11
Divisional games have been a struggle for the Jets over the past few years, and even though this one comes off the back of their bye week, young QBs have always struggled against the Patriots, especially in Foxborough.
After last year's struggles, Zach Wilson will be out to make a name for himself in New England, and if he can do that, the Jets may well be on their way to turning this entire organization around.
While New England isn't the powerhouses they once were, Bill Belichick always seems to find a way to get his players to step up, and at home against a young Jets team, he will likely orchestrate another masterpiece.
nicelyIf the Jets can go into New England and give the Patriots a run for their money, it will set them up well for a second-half run, in which they play six or seven beatable opponents, making this one both tough and very important to New York's season.
5. Week 14 in Buffalo may be the NY Jets biggest test of the season
The Buffalo Bills were once cellar dwellers in the AFC East, but after drafting stud QB Josh Allen, this franchise has only improved, and are now considered one of the favorites to win Super Bowl LVII.
The Jets are building their team in a way similar to what the Bills have done, and if Zach Wilson can take the leaps that Allen has, this team may be a force to be reckoned with in the future, but after a tough start to 2022, this may not be the year Wilson takes that leap.
If the Jets can't cause a few upsets before their bye week, they could be staring down the barrel of another disappointing season when they head to Buffalo, and this loaded Bills team may make it even worse.
If the Jets can step up and get improvements across the board, they could make a game of it, but given how talented Allen and Buffalo are, it's likely to be an unfortunate blowout for the Jets.
