Second Quarter of the Season Expectations

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

After the first four games of the 2015 NFL Season, the New York Jets ended up 3-1. In the next quarter of the season, the team will face the Washington Redskins, New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders, and Jacksonville Jaguars. Excluding the Patriots (who are 4-0), the teams have a combined 5-10 record. It's very possible the team goes 3-1 again in that span. That would bring the team to 6-2 on the season, and would have eight games to get 3-4 more wins to get into the playoffs. Realistically, I don't believe there's any excuse to not win against any team not the Patriots. Even if they go 2-2, however, a 5-3 record is still a good place to be.

So, as long as everything holds together, the team will be in a very good position to make the playoffs. With how dominant the defense has looked, if the offense can keep capitalizing on turnovers and start connecting on the deep passes they've struggled with thus far, this team has real potential to make a deep playoff push. As always, it's going to come down to the offense. What do you think will happen?
