Jets vs. Eagles: Four Bold Predictions

NFL: Preseason-Philadelphia Eagles at New York Jets Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

What a rough year to go bold. Nevertheless, we forge ahead, recklessly prognosticating Jets glory. An 0-3 record doesn’t stop the bold.

Disclaimer: Bold Predictions are not realistic expectations for the game, but rather something that is unlikely to happen, yet possible. These predictions are both pro-Jets and stretch the boundaries of probability. Claiming that Sam Darnold throws a touchdown pass is not a Bold Prediction, nor is claiming that Sam Darnold throws 20 touchdown passes. These predictions must be within the bounds of possibility, but also highly improbable. As always, the final score prediction remains a realistic guess at the result of the game and does not relate to the Bold Predictions.

Here are my four bold predictions for today’s game:

  • The Jets have a passing, rushing, special teams, and defensive touchdown.
  • Robby Anderson goes off for at least 125 yards and two TDs.
  • The Eagles are held to under 200 total yards on offense.
  • The Jets have a touchdown on the opening drive of each half.

Final Score: Jets 13, Eagles 27

And a bonus prediction: Le’Veon Bell has a rushing, receiving, and passing TD.
