The Offseason Needed To End The Jets’ Playoff Drought – Part 1

Ben Blessington with part 1 of his offseason that will end the New York Jets playoff drought

After a somewhat promising 2017 season, the New York Jets will look to build on their positives in 2018. Despite starting a 39 year old QB, with holes all over the roster, the Jets suprisingly hung around in the playoff hunt until December.
