1. New York Jets
The Jets have had a pretty good season. Unfortunately, they probably won’t improve enough to make a big impact in the rankings. At best, they’ll be the third-best team in the AFC East, which isn’t the toughest league in the NFL. And Zach Wilson is likely to miss the first month of the season, so there’s that. Good luck with Joe Flacco.
General USanger Joe Douglas spent comfortably in the free company, bringing in some solid piece but no real household name. In the draft, the Jets picked full-back Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner (Cincinnati) fourth overall, so he’ll have a lot of pressure in his rookie year. With the 10th pick, Douglas took the Ohio receiver’s Garrett Wilson. Then at the end of fthe first round, Douglas grabbed the head of Florida State’s defense Jermaine Johnson. Therefore, the youth movement is working in full force at Florham Park.
Even if Wilson is at QB at the start of the season, it’s going to be tough, but now that he’s out and Joe Flacco is running things, we can expect a 0-3 start. The Jets started the season with the AFC North. The Jets get the Ravens, Browns, Bengals and Steelers to start the year. Good luck finding a win there. Oh, and the Jets also won all three of their post-season games.
