The NY Jets will take a trip across the Atlantic Ocean to do battle with the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5. This London showdown will be the Jets' first trip to England since their matchup with the Miami Dolphins in 2015.
The circumstances are a little different this time around.
Rather than an offense led by veterans such as Ryan Fitzpatrick and Chris Ivory, the Jets will march into London with a youth movement in full swing spearheaded by players like Zach Wilson and Michael Carter.
The Jets are fresh off their first victory of the season in a thrilling 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in overtime last week. Meanwhile, Atlanta also enters this game with a 1-3 record having fallen short against the Washington Football Team in Week 4.
Will the Jets win two in a row heading into their bye week or will Atlanta take another step toward climbing back to .500?
