This is not a high scoring ravens offense.  They rely on grinding out yards.  The jets d should be considerably better than last year.  And if the jets can score it’s going to put lamar in turnover prone situations.

I understand, but if you watched the Colts game last year, you can understand the concern people have. This defense was awful against the run at times last year. 

I expect us to be better and to be juiced by the opening day crowd, but this is not an easy matchup. I'll be curious to see what the line is. The Ravens will be heavy favorites.

In fairness there are no easy games for the jets.  But here at least they’re not facing a cadre of sick wrs.  Their DL is revamped and the jets may actually be able to put some points up early and put pressure on the ravens to play from behind.

Was hoping for an easier week 1 opponent. Have to get off to a decent start this year to have any chance. we’ve been a non-competitive September team for years 

They had a losing record.  Gotta play somebody decent .  Could be way worse

Most injured team in the league. 0-4 without Jackson.

Will not be so lucky week one. Our defence matches up horribly against them.

They had a losing record because the league MVP from a couple of years ago got hurt

Easy win? Are you high? 

Lamar's passing game is trash without Andrews and Hollywood isn't a Raven anymore. I expect our defense to hold them under 17 points in week 1

Mmm, not sure I like the thought of our ILBs trying to catch Lamar Jackson in space.

But overall, I actually think we have a semi decent chance b/c of how their D is a big unknown, and likely hasn’t gelled yet.  I think we could catch them in some busted coverages.

They don’t scare me like they used too.

Three days before Christmas?  Two teams likely out of the playoff hunt?  Jags and Jets?

Either that game has a TV viewership of 138 people.... or it gets flexed out.  And, given how late they scheduled the game my money would be on the NFL having a high confidence they get to use that slot and move whatever game they want into it.

This is a total placeholder by the NFL scheduling team.

 

EDIT:  Now being brought to my attention that TNF games might not be open to flex scheduling so this post might be moot.  Actually, I'll just stick with the total TV viewership guess of 138. :P

I don't think flexible scheduling applies to Thursday night games -- only Sunday night games. Seems like a weird game for a national audience late in the season, but I don't think it changes.

You could be right.  It just seems like such an odd game to schedule that late in the season between two teams who just Drafted in the Top 4.

I know they flex the Sunday games, but do they do the same for TNF and MNF?

I didn’t think they did.

So for all you ticket holders....I would guess that having this as the Thursday night game is a good thing, at least to avoid dealing with balancing the Christmas weekend and going to a game?

Hell yeah. Jets can't ruin my Christmas.
