Michael Meegan with a breakdown of the Las Vegas Raiders, the New York Jets week 13 opponent…
The Raiders left Oakland for the bright lights of Las Vegas. The Raiders got off to a hot start in 2019 but faltered to a 1-5 finish to go 7-9. With another loaded draft class, the Raiders are looking to break through and look again like the 2016 Raiders which looked like a Super Bowl contender. The Raiders come back to Metlife for a December showdown Week 13 with the Jets looking to get revenge for the spanking the Jets put on them last year.
Michael Meegan continues his look at the New York Jets 2020 opponents, with a breakdown of the Miami Dolphins
A team that was accused of tanking in the first half the Miami Dolphins righted the ship and finished the season 5-4. They added numerous big named free agents and had 5 top 60 picks to help fill out a roster that has undergone massive turnover since they hired Brian Flores in 2019. The Jets and Dolphins have the wonkiest schedule you will ever see when they face each other as they play successive games in Weeks 10 and 12 with each team having their Week 11 Bye in-between.
Michael Meegan breaks down the New York Jets week 8 opponent, the New England Patriots
The Evil Empire will look different for the first time in 20 years as Tom Brady waved farewell to the Patriots this past March for sunny Tampa Bay. While many have thought this would mark the end of the Patriots dynasty it would be foolish to count out Bill Belichick so easily. With a Monday Night football replay of the dreaded “Ghost Game” at home and a season finale Week 17 at Gillette the Jets should by no means be underestimating the Patriots in 2020.

Michael Meegan breaks down the New York Jets week 5 opponent, the Arizona Cardinals
In 2019 the Arizona Cardinals got bold and replaced first year HC Steve Wilks and 2018 top ten pick Josh Rosen with former college head coach Kliff Kingsbury and Heisman trophy winner Kyler Murray.
While Arizona was deemed dysfunctional for hiring a college coach with a career losing record and going all in on a QB who is shorter than six feet, it turned out to be a masterstroke. Murray won Offensive Rookie of the Year and Kingsbury with limited personnel helped orchestrate the second best rushing attack in the NFL. In 2020 Arizona looked poised to build on the momentum built with Kingsbury and Murray in 2019 and looked to be one of the most exciting offenses going forward as they make their way to MetLife in week 5.
Michael Meegan with a closer look at the New York Jets week 4 opponent, the Denver Broncos
Like the New York Jets the Denver Broncos finished the 2019 season strong and are hoping some of that momentum carries over into 2020. Rookie Drew Lock started the final 5 games and the Broncos went 4-1 over that span as Lock is primed to be the guy they have been looking for since Peyton Manning retired. The Broncos come to Metlife on a short week as the two teams square off Week 4 on Thursday night football.
Michael Meegan looks at the New York Jets week 3 opponent, the Indianapolis Colts
The Indianapolis Colts looked poise to join the AFC elite going into the 2019 season. They were however rocked with the sudden news of QB Andrew Luck’s retirement just before the season and never recovered. They enlisted the help of aging veteran QB Phillip Rivers to see if he has one last ride in him for 2020. In Week 3 the Jets go to Indy as their brutal start to the season continues…

They make their way to the east coast in Week 2 of 2020 season for the Jets home opener.
