Jets 2009 Schedule Released

The NFL schedules are out!  The NFL schedules are out!

OK, it's not that big of a deal, but it does get the juices flowing for some NFL action (for me, anyway).  The Jets will begin their first season under new head coach Rex Ryan on the road (big surprise) against the Houston Texans.  The Green and White have opened as the visitors in 36 of their previous 49 seasons.  The Jets home opener will come a week later against the New England Patriots (even bigger surprise).  It will mark the fourth straight year that Gang Green will host the Pats to open their home schedule.

Randy Lange provides a little Jets history and some interesting tidbits as he breaks down the games for 2009.

And here's a look at the opponents.
  • at Houston
  • New England
  • Tennessee
  • at New Orleans
  • at Miami (Monday night)
  • Buffalo
  • at Oakland
  • Miami
  • Bye
  • Jacksonville
  • at New England
  • Carolina
  • at Buffalo (Thursday night in Canada)
  • at Tampa Bay
  • Atlanta
  • at Indianapolis
  • Cincinnati
The Jets will be featured on at least two nationally televised telecasts in 2009 and both will be on the road (at Miami on Monday night and at Buffalo via Toronto on Thursday night).  I say "at least" because the final seven games of the NFL season come complete with flexible scheduling.

The Green Guys will get their bye week smack in the middle of the season, or Week 8, which is ideal.  It gives you a chance to lick your wounds, look back at what went right and wrong during the first eight games and prepare for what you need to do to make a push for the postseason.

It's usually a losing proposition to handicap opponents based on last season's records, but the Jets should be happy that they will head out to the West Coast just once this season (at Oakland in Week 7).  The Jets dropped all four road games on the Left Coast last season and it cost them a playoff spot.  The closest the Jets will come to the Pacific Ocean besides the Raiders game will come in the season opener at Houston.

And if anyone cares, the regular season can't start before the preseason begins (lousy time-space continuum).  The Jets will open their 2009 campaign Aug. 14 at home against St. Louis.  The next three games will be at Baltimore, "at" the Giants and home to Philadelphia.

Let the games begin!

pay attention against Carolina, you will be facing the Colts ex-defensive coordinator a few weeks before going to Indy. Indy may be out in front enough that late that the jets can steal one on the road.

Fair enough. I just hope the Jets are in the thick of the playoff hunt by the time the Indy game rolls around.
