New York Jets

2020 Finish: 2-14 (0-6 in AFC East)

2020 Games vs. the Buffalo Bills: Week 1: 27-17, Week 16: 18-10 (lost both)

There are very few if any positive things that can be said about the 2020 New York Jets.

The Jets are attempting to yet again hit the reset button and start from scratch in their attempt to make the playoffs for the first time since 2009. In that attempt, the Jets have actually made a few improvements to their roster in the 2021 offseason, mostly on the defensive side. The Jets signed Carl Lawson and Sheldon Rankins, significantly improving their defensive line.

On offense, the Jets brought in 2017 fifth overall pick Corey Davis, and ex-Jacksonville Jaguar Keelan Cole. They also drafted Elijah Moore 34th overall out of Ole Miss. While these additions are improvements, they are small ones at that.

The Jets also upgraded their offensive line, signing guard Dan Feeney from the Chargers, and trading up to draft Alijah Vera-Tucker 14th overall. However, the addition that will get the most attention for Jets is Brigham Young product Zach Wilson, the second overall pick in the draft.

Wilson has all the tools to be a successful quarterback in the NFL. However, he may struggle early, given that three of the better defenses in the AFC reside in his division. The Bills swept the Jets in 2020, expect more of the same in 2021. A loss to the Jets would likely be the low point of Buffalo’s 2021 season.
