The Jets arguably won the NFL Draft, highlighted by their three first-round picks Sous Gardner, Garrett Wilson, and Jermaine Johnson. But is the new and improved Gang Green ready to take a big leap from last season’s 4-13 record? Is second-year quarterback Zach Wilson, the No. 2 pick in the 2021 draft, ready to take a big step forward with his new weapons?
They will test early at MetLife with four straight games against the AFC North, starting with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. And in Week 3, Joe Burrow and the AFC champion Bengals come to town. Throw in your split slate with electricity bills, better dolphins and the always tougher Patriots and it adds up to a huge hill for the Jets to climb in 2022.
Here’s a look at the Jets’ full schedule, including just one prime-time game, Thursday night’s home tussle against the Jaguars, and last year’s top pick, QB Trevor Lawrence.
