Excitement about the 2022 regular season has been building for Jets fans for months.
New York has improved across the board this offseason, bolstering their roster around second-year quarterback Zach Wilson with a mix of talented youngsters and proven veterans.
The Jets provided Wilson with a new top receiver and running back in the 2022 NFL Draft (in Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall), they brought in a starting guard to strengthen the offensive line while overhauling their tight end room.
After finishing last year with the worst defense in football, the Jets also focused on that side of the ball this offseason. New York's defensive line is even stronger and their secondary was upgraded as well—both in the draft (with No. 4 overall pick Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner) and in free agency (with cornerback D.J. Reed and safety Jordan Whitehead).
The fan base already knew which teams the Jets would be playing this season, in addition to where. Now, Gang Green's entire schedule has been revealed.
