This week on Wednesday, SB Nation’s NFL blogs will be asked one question to answer. This week we have been asked to identify the most surprising part of the NFL season so far.
If we are looking at the entire NFL, I think the obvious answer is Kansas City’s win in Foxborough over the Patriots. Did Chiefs fans even think their team would win that game?
Let’s stick to the Jets, though. There were not many surprises on Sunday against the Bills, and that is not a good thing. The Jets were pegged by many experts as one of the worst teams in the NFL, and they spent their Week 1 proving the doom and gloom predictions correct.
One exception was the kicker, Chandler Catanzaro. Many people questioned the Jets signing a kicker coming off a bad year in Arizona. Even more questioned the Jets when Catanzaro made the roster despite being outkicked by Ross Martin in training camp.
Catanzaro may yet prove to be an unsuccessful signing, but he delivered in his Jets debut by nailing field goals from 48 and 52 yards out.
It isn’t great when the kicker is the most pleasant surprise, but at least something went right on Sunday.
