Jets have the 3rd hardest schedule in '20 in NY Jets Forum Posted May 7, 2020 I always say "it's not WHO you play but WHEN you play them". We will know after tonight just how tough the schedule is. Jets always get screwed with like first 7 games against playoff teams! crazy! I'd rather have some "cupcakes" at the start of the year; build up some confidence with wins, THEN be ready for the tougher games at the end of the year. See last year, they had the tough games up front, then the "easy games" in the middle/towards the end. That's what made last year so impressive IMHO: to be 1-7, there is no longer such a thing as an "easy game" because guess what? those teams were looking at the Jets as their easy game. if the trend for the Jets continues, they will be playing at Buffalo, at Seattle, home for KC, then niners to start the season. it's amazing, really!
