It’s officially set: The New York Jets’ 2022 NFL preseason and regular-season schedule is locked in stone.

This year, the Jets will play just eight home games (as opposed to nine a year ago), while nine of their games will come on the road, all courtesy of the unbalanced 17-game schedule.

Interestingly, the team’s first four games of the season come against the entirety of the AFC North, first starting with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1 at MetLife Stadium (Sunday, Sept. 11, 2022, at 1 p.m. ET).

The New York Jets schedule was a tough one to fully evaluate heading into the season. Then again, isn’t each team’s schedule tough to gauge prior to the official regular season’s commencement?

This year, the Jets faced the AFC South and NFC South. The Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos represent the like-for-like matchups (fourth-place teams from 2020), and the Philadelphia Eagles account for the 17th game—the first time in NFL history the regular season will feature 17 team games apiece.

Speaking of the Eagles, they represent the only NFL team the Jets have never defeated. Unfortunately, Gotham Green could not end the streak, as the Eagles got the better of them yet again.

In the end, the New York Jets finished a lowly 4-13 on the season, totaling just 53 yards in the season capper, a 27-10 loss to the AFC East champion Buffalo Bills, on the road.

By the time it officially ended, the young New York Jets could muster just four victories. Interestingly, however, the optimism is tough to miss.

Zach Wilson‘s progress in the home stretch of the season is evident. Returning from the knee injury sustained against the New England Patriots, Wilson returned in Houston and slowly (but surely) flipped his brain to the confident side.

Robert Saleh‘s group could never snag that second-straight victory—when viewing the 2021 NFL schedule results—but they did provide plenty of reasons to believe the 2022 offseason will be the capper that turns this depth chart into a relevant one.

The 2021 schedule showcased the AFC South (once every three years), the NFC South (once every four years), and a place-for-place matchup with the AFC North (Cincinnati Bengals), AFC West (Denver Broncos), and, for the first time ever, per the 17-game schedule, the NFC East (Philadelphia Eagles)

Ugly, ugly, ugly … just 53 total yards of offense. It’s a total so ugly that it can only be thought of as near-fiction. Without Elijah Moore, Corey Davis, Mekhi Becton, George Fant and many others, including Braxton Berrios, whose jet-motion abilities helped transform Mike LaFleur’s offense this season, Zach Wilson did not have much of a chance to succeed against the Bills in Buffalo.

Although Robert Saleh’s defense put forth a solid effort against Josh Allen and company, Buffalo finally separated itself in the fourth quarter, scoring 14 unanswered points. The Bills clinched their second straight AFC East crown, while the Jets finish the season at a disappointing 4-13.

Next up is the NFL offseason, where the New York Jets will pick fourth in the 2022 NFL draft after Joe Douglas makes his free agent moves in the open market.

And just like that, the NFL regular season has come and gone. Oh, where does the time go? For Zach Wilson, especially, this rapid time warp that seems to occur each football season is that much more potent, as there simply isn’t enough time remaining.

After looking solid in August, as well as the second half in Carolina (when given a chance), Wilson’s mental funk that began with Bill Belichick in Week 2 is seemingly a thing of the past. The New York Jets rookie quarterback has played brilliantly over the last several weeks, and his showdown with Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills will take him and the organization into a promising offseason.

With a win, the Bills will clinch their second-straight AFC East title. If the Jets somehow come up with the upset, the New England Patriots can capture the division title with a win against the Miami Dolphins.

The names may have changed and the year might read 2022 these days, but the story remains the same. Despite holding a two-touchdown lead in the second half, Tom Brady burned the New York Jets one more time—and perhaps the final time.

Facing a 24-20 deficit, Brady found Cyril Grayson with just 15 seconds to go in regulation. A two-point conversion put the final at 28-24, and it was made possible by a failed quarterback sneak on fourth and 2 by the Jets offense. Nonetheless, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson played tremendously, throwing for over 200 yards and looking incredibly seasoned.

Tom Brady’s final Northern New Jersey bow is on tap in Week 17, and New York Jets fans could not be more thrilled. Considering the Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers play just once every four years—rotating home games—this should be No. 12’s final game at MetLife Stadium while taking on his former AFC East rivals.

Although he shares a birthday with Brady, young Zach Wilson is determined to not lay an egg with the seven-time Super Bowl champ in the house. After playing well against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Wilson will look to stack up more impressive performances as the 2021 season winds down (while playing in 2022).

A matchup featuring teams with a combined five wins turned out to be one of the more entertaining games of the NFL Week 16 slate, and it also turned out to shine a light on rookie quarterback Zach Wilson. Although his passing numbers were anything but spectacular, the New York Jets signal-caller pulled off an amazing 52-yard touchdown run while leading the Jets to a 26-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

On the other side, Trevor Lawrence put up bigger numbers, 280 yards through the air, but was not as impressive in defeat. He had a chance to win the game late in the fourth quarter but ultimately could not get it done (with the ball at the 2-yard line). Interim head coach Ron Middleton’s record is now a sparkling 1-0.

The story for the New York Jets heading into Week 16 is not about who’s playing, but rather who’s not playing. Similar to multiple NFL teams around the league, Robert Saleh’s group will be without a plethora of players thanks to COVID-19 contractions that have ravaged the league. Saleh, himself, will miss the game, too, paving the way for tight ends coach Ron Middleton to take head coaching duties against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As far as who will be on the field, the matchup showcases the No. 1 and 2 picks from the 2021 NFL draft. It will be Zach Wilson against Trevor Lawrence at MetLife Stadium while both teams navigate the top of the tank standings for the top pick in the 2020 NFL draft.

It looked so good that New York Jets fans could not believe it. Zach Wilson started hot and their beloved Jets took an actual lead into halftime for the first time this season, 17-10. Unfortunately, it was, indeed, too good to be true.

Without George Fant, New York’s offensive line let down the kid quarterback (six sacks on the day), and Robert Saleh’s defense faltered after safety Elijah Riley left that game on a stretcher via a scary injury. In spite of a pretty Brandin Echols pick-6, the Jets allowed Duke Johnson to run wild and the Fins put up 21 second-half points, ultimately falling by a 31-24 final.

The AFC East’s fiercest rivalry is back—and no, it’s not the New York Jets and New England Patriots. The team from the south, the Miami Dolphins, remain the Jets’ greatest rivals, and the Jets-Fins series remains the division’s greatest rivalry to date.

Miami currently leads the all-time series, 56-55-1, after knocking off the Jets in the first meeting this season (occurring just a few weeks ago). But Zach Wilson and company, which includes returning rookie running back Michael Carter, will have a chance to spoil the Dolphins’ recent surge and get even once again.

One of the ugliest games of the NFL season occurred at MetLife Stadium when the New York Jets put forth an uninspiring effort against the New Orleans Saints. After paying decently well against the Philadelphia Eagles, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson reverted back to inaccurate and unconfident play.

He finished with 202 yards through the air, but most of that came in garbage time after the Saints had built a large enough lead. Alvin Kamara ran wild, 141 yards and a touchdown, while Taysom Hill also added two scores on the ground. Yet again, Robert Saleh’s defense couldn’t stop the run, as Sean Payton’s squad did what it wanted.

Injury warfare is what leads the banged-up 3-9 New York Jets and 5-7 New Orleans Saints into Week 14’s matchup at MetLife Stadium. Rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore became the latest Jet to hit the shelf, as the organization announced his newly-placed injured reserve status on Saturday. Add that on top of an already substantial list, and the three-win Jets are hurting across the entire depth chart.

For the Saints, Ryan Ramczyk is out, as is Jameis Winston, of course. This paves the way for Taysom Hill to start at quarterback, setting up the all-BYU quarterback showdown for this one. Sean Payton’s bunch has struggled all year, especially on offense, currently ranked 23rd heading into the matchup (as opposed to the Jets’ 22nd ranking).

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Zach Wilson, Elijah Moore and the New York Jets offense can get out to an unusually hot start, while the defense epically falters en route to the organization’s 12th all-time loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Still, the green football team from Northern New Jersey does not own a single all-time victory against the green team from Southeast Pennsylvania.

Wilson started hot after a big-time Braxton Berrios opening-game kick return. He found Elijah Moore for a red-zone touchdown, snuck one in and connected with Ryan Griffin for a total of three touchdowns on the day. In the end, however, Robert Saleh and Jeff Ulbrich’s defense could not stop Gardner Minshew and the Eagles offense, specifically the rushing attack led by Miles Sanders.

The 12th time’s the charm? Such a sentiment doesn’t exactly sound as nice as other numbers when uttered aloud, but the New York Jets have a chance to make it a reality in Week 13 when the Philadelphia Eagles come in for a visit. Zach Wilson’s Jets currently face an all-time 11-0 deficit in the series with the team from Southeast Pennsylvania.

Interestingly, Eagles’ starting quarterback Jalen Hurts will miss this one via injury, paving the way for veteran Gardner Minshew. Although Robert Saleh’s group prepared for both quarterbacks during the week, Saturday night’s news confirmed that it will be the former Jacksonville Jaguars signal-caller. Now, all Wilson and the Jets need to do is snag that first all-time victory in order to make this claim: The Jets have beaten every NFL franchise in existence.

It was anything but pretty, yet the New York Jets are flying home with a victory. Zach Wilson’s return game—after missing the last four contests via injury—did not go as swimmingly as he had hoped. Rust clearly presented itself in this one, especially early in the contest, but the Jets defense decided to buckle down and lead the way.

After Houston marched out to an early 14-3 lead, New York tallied 18 unanswered points to take the game by a 21-14 final. Wilson finished with modest numbers through the air but did earn the game-winning score on a read-option that featured him keeping the ball. John Franklin-Myers picked up an interception and Robert Saleh’s defense sacked Tyrod Taylor four times.

The prodigal son will return. New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson makes his highly-anticipated return to action in Week 12 against the Houston Texans. And although Mike White filled in admirably (save for the Buffalo Bills disaster) and Joe Flacco held the fort down, the BYU product is the future of the franchise.

Fortunately, Wilson’s return game comes against a 2-8 Texans squad. Tyrod Taylor’s team has hung in tough for stretches over the team’s first 10 games, but they are one of the worst in the league—right there with the Jets. With seven games remaining in the 2021 NFL season, the home stretch begins now for Wilson and Joe Douglas’s young team.

New quarterback but the same old New York Jets. Joe Flacco’s two touchdown passes couldn’t prevent his team from dropping a third-straight game, a 24-17 defeat at the hands of the AFC East rival Miami Dolphins. Although the game didn’t go the way of the home team, there’s at least hope on the horizon.

Rookie Elijah Moore snagged eight balls for 141 yards and a touchdown. His 62-yard score tied the game at 14 in the third quarter, but it wasn’t enough in the end. Fellow rookie Michael Carter got off to a hot start, toting the rock nine times for 63 yards (7.0 yards per carry), but he left the game early with an ankle injury. In spite of the final score, Robert Saleh’s rookies played well enough (including Alijah Vera-Tucker) to provide Jets fans with a dash of optimism.

When the music plays, the kids have a day. When the music stops, at least one of those kids will drop. The game of musical chairs is a fun yet oftentimes violent game better left for those who don’t bruise for a month after a simple bump, but the New York Jets are an active participant at it relates to one of their positions.

First, it was Zach Wilson, then Cinderella Mike White, and now it’s veteran Joe Flacco’s turn to lead the 2021 Jets. Flacco gets the call in Week 11 with the 3-7 Miami Dolphins coming to town. Despite a struggling season—after such a positively shocking one in 2020—Brian Flores’s squad upset the Baltimore Ravens in Week 10. Flacco and the Jets will look to snap a two-game losing skid at MetLife Stadium.

Just like that, the Mike White magic so many optimistic New York Jets fans hoped would last has gone up in smoke. The former fifth-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys threw four interceptions en route to a 45-17 pummeling at the hands of the Buffalo Bills.

Quarterback Josh Allen had his way with Robert Saleh’s defense, throwing for well over 300 yards and two touchdowns (to just one interception). No matter Brian Daboll’s call, the Jets defense was sure to give up decent yardage. The Jets’ coaching reflected poorly in this Week 10 throttling at the hands of an AFC East opponent.

On a Wednesday in Florham Park, NJ, the New York Jets made their decision: Mike White. Head coach Robert Saleh told the media that rookie quarterback Zach Wilson was not yet fully ready, which meant the 26-year-old White would make his third-straight start—against the AFC East’s best.

White will take on a tough Buffalo Bills defense with stud quarterback Josh Allen on the other side. He’ll also be taking on an angrier-than-usual team that inexplicably lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars the week prior. After a rough outing in primetime against the Indianapolis Colts—where White exited the game early and never returned—Week 10 represents a put-up or shut-up sort of opportunity.

Well, that wasn’t fun for anybody involved with the green and white. Not only did New York Jets fans have to deal with a 40-35 steamrolling at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts—and it was a steamrolling, as the score didn’t indicate how things went—but they also had to endure Mike White’s untimely exit.

After looking tremendous on his first two drives—the second of which resulted in an Elijah Moore touchdown reception—White left the game to never return. He injured his right forearm on the follow-through, paving the way for Josh Johnson who threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns. Nevertheless, the Colts had their way with the Jets’ defense, piling up 260 yards on the ground and 532 in total.

It’s time for Mike White to act his shocking act to primetime. Just four days after the backup quarterback’s 405-yard, three-touchdown performance in the New York Jets’ 34-31 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, he leads his 2-5 team into Indianapolis to take on Carson Wentz and the Colts.

Thursday night represents the make-or-break game for the Jets’ quarterback narrative the rest of the season. It’s entirely possible that Zach Wilson is ready to play in Week 10, which means Robert Saleh will have to sit a red-hot White if he continues what he started on Halloween. Then again, if he can’t get it done in Indy, Wilson’s path to reclaiming the starting job becomes that much easier.

Not even the man himself could believe the New York Jets faithful were chanting his name on this very special Halloween. Mike White became the first Jets quarterback in 21 years to throw for 400 yards in a shocking 34-31 victory over the red-hot Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8.

White’s three touchdowns sparked a stagnant Jets offense. He even led the team on a long scoring drive in its first possession en route to the team’s first points in the first quarter all season. Coupled with a solid defensive day, White and the Jets’ offense shocked the Bengals and an entire league.

Orange and black and a man named “Michael” on Halloween—this is what’s on tap for the New York Jets in Week 8 of the 2021 NFL season. Mike White, potentially named “Michael” (we’re not exactly sure), will look to scare the Cincinnati Bengals by using his best Michael Myers impression at MetLife Stadium.

This one features two totally contrasting teams. The 1-5 Jets enter the contest on a two-game losing streak—one of which came in embarrassing fashion to Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots—whereas the 5-2 Bengals are red-hot after beating down the divisional rival Baltimore Ravens.

Welcome to rock-bottom yet again. Unsurprisingly, Bill Belichick has embarrassed the New York Jets, another time, as it doesn’t seem to have an ending point in spite of Tom Brady’s new home location.

Zach Wilson exited the game via a knee injury in the second quarter, but Robert Saleh’s defense played terribly throughout. C.J. Mosley’s absence didn’t help matters, but so much more was missing. The inexperience at linebacker combined with a no-show by the defensive line and Marcus Maye led to a career-day for Mac Jones.

The 1-4 New York Jets come off their bye week to meet Mr. Bill Belichick for the second time in 2021. Perhaps there could have been a better opponent for a struggling rookie quarterback, but that’s who young Zach Wilson gets in Week 7.

Interestingly, the 2-4 New England Patriots aren’t exactly lighting the world on fire either. Coming off a tough overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Mac Jones and company seek their third victory of the season.

It doesn’t get much worse for New York Jets fans. On this day, while they ate their Wheaties with Jets football, the green and white came crashing back down to Earth. The winning streak was not to be as the Atlanta Falcons knocked off Zach Wilson’s squad 27-20 in London.

The rookie quarterback struggled again, prompting many questions about what he’s seeing out there, whereas the rookie tight end, Kyle Pitts, went off to the tune of nine receptions, 119 yards and a touchdown. Matt Ryan also enjoyed a fine outing in a game Robert Saleh’s squad had very few answers.

Could it possibly happen? Could the New York Jets, the same franchise that has caused so much pain and agony to their fanbase for so long, actually win two straight games? Well, absolutely it can happen.

Not only did the Jets catch a break with the extra home game in this inaugural 17-game NFL regular season, but they also fetched a road game in London that serves as a neutral site game. The 1-3 Atlanta Falcons will be the home team, but they’re among the NFL’s worst defenses—something young Zach Wilson could take advantage of at 9:30 a.m. ET from across the pond.

The New York Jets finally did it: They won a game. (They also scored a touchdown for the first time since Week 1, but hey, a win has to be the headline.)

Led by Zach Wilson’s chunk-taking mastery in the second half, the Jets held on for dear life in a 27-24 overtime victory over the Tennessee Titans. Wilson’s near-300-yard performance with two touchdowns and an interception helped the youngest team in the NFL to its first victory of the young 2021 NFL season.

The New York Jets simply need a victory. Having not punched one in the end zone since Week 1 in Carolina, Mike LaFleur’s offense is running on empty. Rookie Zach Wilson’s indecisiveness, combined with a case of the dropsies elsewhere, all while the offensive line continues to befuddle onlookers, has folks confused.

Whether or not Wilson and the Jets can get it done against a usually coached-up Mike Vrabel defense is the big question. Plus, ensuring that Derrick Henry is contained on the other side of the ball is where Robert Saleh and Jeff Ulbrich must turn their attention to.

It simply cannot get much worse for the New York Jets. Robert Saleh’s team came out flat against the Denver Broncos at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium, and they continued to play an extremely uninspired game until the final gun.

Zach Wilson struggled aside an offense that didn’t give him much help. Weapons dropped the ball continuously while the offensive line didn’t have a good outing. Couple that with a terrible tackling day defensively and the Jets fell to 0-3 on the young season.

On the heels of a horrid MetLife Stadium debut, New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson looks to right the ship in the thin air of the Rocky Mountains. Considering the proximity to his hometown, family will be in attendance, hoping the BYU product can lead the Jets to their first victory of the season.

Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos are 2-0, but they haven’t exactly taken on the 1960s Green Bay Packers yet. The New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars can hardly be labeled as fierce competition.

Not even the most pessimistic New York Jets fans could have envisioned this. Rookie Zach Wilson turned the ball over four times (four interceptions) en route to giving his team no shot in MetLife Stadium’s first fan-filled game since 2019.

Yet again, Bill Belichick works his defensive magic when taking on a rookie quarterback. Mac Jones threw the ball efficiently while not needing to do much.

Finally, the fans have come back to East Rutherford, NJ. For the first time since the 2019 NFL regular season, New York Jets fans will be in attendance at MetLife Stadium to watch their team play football.

The rookie quarterback matchup will be key, as No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson takes on No. 15 overall choice Mac Jones. Can Bill Belichick once again work his magic against a rookie signal-caller?

The 2021 season-opening game didn’t go the New York Jets’ way. However, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson rebounded nicely after a tough start. Pressured left, right, up and down, Wilson fought through terrible circumstances and put up two touchdowns.

Former Jets quarterback Sam Darnold connected with Robby Anderson for a big touchdown that helped the Carolina Panthers to the 19-14 victory down south.

Of course this is the first matchup of the season. Oh, those tricky NFL schedule makers can really deliver at times, and this is one of those occurrences.

Former New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold welcomes in his former team while wearing the black and teal. He’ll square off against the guy that replaced him, No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson.

NFL Schedule Explanation

The extra 17th game

The NFL has officially added a 17th game for 2021. The Philadelphia Eagles will be the opponent, at home, as they finished fourth in the NFC East, matching up with the AFC East for the 17th game in 2021 (first place plays first place, second plays second, and so on).

Other than the 17th game, the Jets will play:

  • 6 games versus the AFC East (3 home, 3 away)
  • 4 games versus another AFC division (2 home, 2 away)
  • 4 games versus an NFC division (2 home, 2 away)
  • 2 games versus the teams within the AFC that finished in the same place within their division as the Jets and are not part of the division that the Jets will play in its entirety (1 home, 1 away)

How the rotation works

Each time the Jets play a division, the home and away opponents flip from the last time they played that division.

In 2013, the Jets hosted the Browns and Steelers, and visited the Bengals and Ravens. In 2016, they hosted the Bengals and Ravens while visiting the Browns and Steelers. In 2019, the Jets once again hosted the Browns and Steelers while visiting the Bengals and Ravens.

The Jets will see each AFC division in its entirety every three years. The Jets will play the AFC West in 2020 after last facing the entire division in 2017. (Jets AFC divisional rotation from 2020 onward: West, South, North)

The Jets will see each NFC division in its entirety every four years. The Jets will play the NFC West in 2020 after last facing the entire division in 2016. (Jets NFC divisional rotation from 2020 onward: West, South, North, East)

The home/away rotation of the other two AFC opponents requires an understanding of past setups to know how it will look in the future. Of the two opponents, the Jets will play a team from the same division in the same location (either home/away) for two consecutive years, while the opposite location (home/away) will flip to the other division.

Example of how the cycle works:

  • 2016: AFC South Home (Colts), AFC West Away (Chiefs)
  • 2017: AFC South Home (Jaguars), AFC North Away (Browns)
  • 2018: AFC West Home (Broncos), AFC North Away (Browns)
  • 2019: AFC West Home (Raiders), AFC South Away (Jaguars)
