New York Jets 2011 Opponents Are Now Known

We now know the 16 opponent the Jets will face next season.

Home: Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants

Away: Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Baltimore Ravens, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins

We already knew 14 of the 16 opponents. There was always going to be a home and home with the other AFC East teams. There was always going to be a game with each NFC East club since teams play against one division each season in the opposing conferences on a rotating basis. There was also always going to be a game with each AFC West club since teams play against one different division in the same conference on a rotating basis. 2011 is the year for the NFC East and AFC West in the rotation.

Baltimore and Jacksonville were the other opponents the Jets got. Those two games came because the Jets finished second in the AFC East, and these teams finished second in their respective divisions. Teams play against the two teams that finished in the same spots in the standings the year before in the two in conference divisions they will not face in a given year (AFC South and AFC North this coming year).

It's too early to guess whether this will be an easy or a difficult schedule. There will be an entire offseason for these teams to change their rosters, and teams get good and bad overnight in the league. This is before we consider injuries and players surprisingly progressing and regressing. There are sure to be some surprises that nobody will prognosticate.
