Football Outsiders Thought the Jets Would Stink Last Year Too

Last week, Smackdad posted an article with Football Outsiders' projections for the 2016 season. They did not look pretty for the Jets. In case that got you down, I decided to take a look back at the results when they made those projections a year ago.

They thought the Jets would be a 6-10 team. They sold the Jets short by four wins. This was not their most glaring miss in the AFC East. Their prediction for the division winner ended up being a horrendous miss.

Miami Dolphins 11-5

New England Patriots 10-6

Buffalo Bills 8-8

New York Jets 6-10

Your hot sleeper Super Bowl contender for 2015 is the Miami Dolphins.

Your hot sleeper Super Bowl contender fired its coach after four games, had its "franchise quarterback" reportedly picking on practice squad players, and finished 6-10.

I'm not trying to pick on Football Outsiders. They have a lot of good information, and they generally do a good job. The prediction business is just tough. You cannot read much into any of these picks.
