New York Jets set for an unusually warm contest in October

It looks like the Tennessee Titans are bringing the southern heat up north with them.

The New York Jets are expected to play their hottest October home game in franchise history when the Titans pay them a visit at MetLife Stadium this afternoon (1 p.m. ET, CBS).

According to The Weather Channel, temperatures in East Rutherford, N.J. are expected to reach 76 degrees by kickoff and climb to a peak of 78 degrees by 2 p.m. That would be the highest temperature recorded at a Jets home game in the month of October – the current record is 77 degrees, set during a game against the Broncos in Week 5 of the 2018 season.

It is expected to be a cloudy and fairly muggy one in New Jersey, although there is no threat of precipitation. Partly cloudy skies are anticipated at kickoff, which should transition to mostly cloudy skies by the game’s conclusion. Humidity is projected to range from 47 to 49 percent. The chance of precipitation currently sits at zero percent throughout the game.

The winds will be light, coming from the southwest at 6 mph to begin the game and increasing to 7 mph by the fourth quarter.

Since moving to MetLife Stadium in 2010, the Jets have a 6-4 record in home games played at a temperature of 75 degrees or higher. Four of the six wins were by double-digits and all four of the losses were by one score.

New York is looking to build upon its 3-0 home record over Tennessee since the franchise moved from Houston to Nashville in 1997.
