NFL 2020 Predictions: Projections, Outlook, Divisional Winners and Super Bowl Pick

Kristian Dyer

The NFL season is here and after as unusual of an offseason as there has ever been around the league, football is set to kick off.

For the New York Jets, this means an uncertain season finally sees cleats meet the grass. After closing out last year with a 7-9 record, the expectation for the Jets is continued improvement.

Yet, that might be impossible. The Jets won six of their final eight games after a rough start to the year. They also did so against a weak schedule.

This year, they have the second-most difficult schedule in the league. A young team that is still flawed will face plenty of challenges.

And while the Jets improved this offseason, in particular along the offensive line, this is still a rebuilding team. They aren’t complete yet, far from it.

So while the offensive line is improved, they still lack depth. They need better quality at cornerback, another edge rusher is lacking and there is little depth at wide receiver.

A projection of a 6-10 record might seem like a step back but the Jets can be an improved and more competitive team, even if the record is not as good as last year.

This is still a developing team that needs one more good offseason of rebuilding to be ready to challenge for the AFC East and the playoffs.

It won’t be a bad year, not at all. But it will be one more season without a winning record or the playoffs.
