After a long and adventurous offseason, the New York Jets finally got to the start of the regular season.

This was not just your run of the mill blowout (which rarely occurs as is in the Jets favor), this was a Christmas Day, it is raining everything Jets fans ever wanted to see in the box score blowout. It was a cleansing primetime party where a long suffering fan base was able to throw their head back in laughter and enjoy the spoils of a potentially very bright future.

Ben DiNapoli previews the 2018 New York Jets secondary…

The big question that remains is will this unit rise to the occasion? Or will they fail to live up to the hype and fall flat yet again?
