The New York Jets are floundering at 3-6 once again. Here we take a look at game-by-game predictions for the remainder of the 2018 season.
The New York Jets are a floundering franchise once again. So what else is new? Gang Green is 3-6 and it’s deja vu all over again. Fans are fed up, players are fed up (hello Jamal Adams) and it seems like the squad is in a constant state of rebuilding and disarray.
I’ve said it for years now – Todd Bowles is not the right head coach for this team. It’s time for him to go at the end of the 2018 campaign. The Jets need an offensive-minded head coach that can help mold and develop rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. Bottom line.
With that being said, here are game-by-game prognostications for Gang Green the rest of the way this season.
Nov. 11 vs. Buffalo: This should be a candidate for most boring game of the year. Two terrible offenses going head-to-head. Gang Green wins a field goal snoozefest , 9-6. Record: 4-6.
Nov. 25 vs. New England: New York’s lack of offensive firepower will be on full display in this mismatch. Tom Brady tosses four touchdown passes — two to Josh Gordon — as the Pats roll at MetLife, 38-13. Record: 4-7.
Dec. 2 at Tennessee: The Titans have a running back now that has crushed the Jets in recent seasons with the Patriots — Dion Lewis. Lewis seems to own the green and white. The University of Pittsburgh product gallops for 95 yards and a touchdown to power Tennessee, 27-20 in Nashville. Record: 4-8.
Dec. 9 at Buffalo: Darnold returns from his “sprained foot” injury and tosses a game-winning touchdown pass to Chris Herndon to lift the Jets to a 16-10 triumph in chilly Orchard Park. Yes, the Bills are that bad. Record: 5-8.
Dec. 15 vs. Houston: Saturday afternoon football comes to the Meadowlands during the holiday season and it won’t be pretty for Gang Green. DeAndre Hopkins grabs a pair of touchdown passes from Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt records 2.5 sacks to send the Texans to a 31-19 victory. Record: 5-9.
Dec. 23 vs. Green Bay: How will the Jets be able to stop Aaron Rodgers? Answer: They can’t. The Packers D is a little shaky but it won’t matter as the future Hall of Fame signal-caller fires touchdown strikes to Davante Adams, Jimmy Graham and Aaron Jones as the Packers faithful in attendance (and there will be many cheese heads at MetLife Stadium) roar in delight as Green Bay rolls to a 38-21 win. Record: 5-10.
Dec. 30 at New England: The green and white will conclude another disappointing season in Tom Brady Land and once again the Patriots will clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs by whipping the hapless Jets. Brady throws three touchdown passes to power the Pats to a 41-10 triumph in Todd Bowles’ last game as head coach. See ya, Todd.
Final Record: 5-11 (just dreadful).
