Raise your hand if you had the 2022 New York Jets schedule featuring a commendable 7-5 record after 12 games. Raise both of your hands if you had the Jets at 7-6 with Mike White leading the charge.
OK, now that the Jets have finished the season at 7-10, nobody is asking for hands to be raised. Sure, the relevancy somewhat late in the season is nice, but dropping six straight after starting 7-4 is a bitter pill to swallow.
The losses to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Detroit Lions were brutal, while the stinger against the Minnesota Vikings was also tough, and the defeat in Buffalo stung. At this point, all the Jets can do is seek to get back to their early-season winning ways.
The Jets first improved to 6-3 after stunning the football world with a 20-17 upset victory over the mighty Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium, prior to dropping their last one.
All felt well in Jets land, despite the team’s recent stinger against the New England Patriots. Starting 5-2 got the entire fanbase abuzz, as the Jets won four straight after a grind-it-out 16-9 victory over the Denver Broncos out west in Week 7.
And now, after the Mike White-led 31-10 trouncing of the Chicago Bears at MetLife Stadium, Robert Saleh’s squad is at 7-4, just one game out of first place in the AFC East.
The good times all started in Week 4, and after that stunning 24-20 come-from-behind win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road, Zach Wilson’s team thrashed the AFC East rival Miami Dolphins at MetLife Stadium in Week 5, 40-17.
Then, in Week 6, Robert Saleh’s group dominated Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on the road, 27-10, to win their third straight game.
In what could only be described as a unique schedule, Robert Saleh’s squad opened up against four straight AFC North teams (every single team in the division). Then, what looked like a tough stretch—Miami, Pittsburgh, Denver and Green Bay—turned out to be the Jets’ four-game win streak.
Finishing at 7-10, the Jets have missed the NFL playoffs for a league-worst 12th-straight season.
Jets 2022 NFL schedule is officially set
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 is always met with great anticipation.
In 2021, the Jets took on the AFC South and NFC South, as they took their act to the south quite often. Unfortunately, their 4-13 record didn’t get the job done in many ways.
Interestingly, 2021 represented the first 17-game schedule in NFL history, and for the Jets, the Philadelphia Eagles served as that 17th game. The only team the Jets have never beaten in the NFL yet again got the better of Gang Green.
Shockingly, the 2022 NFL regular season schedule features four AFC North teams to open the 17-game slate. The AFC East is matched up with the AFC North, NFC North and the Seattle Seahawks are the Jets’ matchup per the 17th game (fourth-place AFC East team vs. fourth-place NFC West team).

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)
