As I said, you have to look a little deeper. All but once, the Jets harder games are followed by an easy opponent.
And so do that Pats. Both teams only have 2 good teams back to back, once. And they are the same teams just flopped. They get Houston then San Fran at home. We get San Fran then Houston at home. They have it late in the season, we have it early. I'd prefer having it late than early which is how the Pats have it.
The Past have six games where they need to bring a cup in the first half. Two where that cup will be filled with cake. They'll struggle to get to the bye with a 5-3 record. If they were 4-4, wouldn't surprise me at all.....
This makes zero sense. We play the same schedule minus 2 teams and those 2 teams are nearly identical. We have the Steelers, they have the Ravens. We have the Chargers, they have the Broncos. Both teams in both scenarios, have the same threats.
Plus they have to deal with Texans/Niners in December, while the Jets play teams like the Cardinals and Jags.
I think you can make a case either way, I'd prefer to get off to a fast start as I think most teams hope to be playing your best ball by the end of the season.
Give me the Jets schedule 8 days a week.....
Pretty much no difference in the 2 schedules, but whatevs.
