With a 2-6 record, the New York Jets have one of the worst records in the AFC conference. However, there is some potential, and not all is lost. If anything, Jets fans should see this more like a light at the end of the tunnel rather than the Jets being the Jets.

At the beginning of the season, Carl Lawson suffered a ruptured Achilles, resulting in the Jets signing Shaq Lawson, who has yet to have a sack. With Carl Lawson out, that was a significant blow to Robert Salah’s defense because he had big plans for him before the season officially started. Overall the Jets have been riddled with injuries, and a major one is Offensive Tackle Mekhi Becton and Quarterback Zach Wilson.

On a more positive outlook, the Jet’s two wins were against two playoff teams, and in both games, the Jets played terrifically. Against the Titans, Zach Wilson threw for 297 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Corey Davis had 111 receiving yards and a touchdown averaging about 27.9 yards per reception.
What makes things better is that against the Bengals, Mike White threw for 405 yards and three touchdowns. So not only does New York have a good defense, but they also have a promising offense with a backup quarterback with a lot of potential.
I know this season is a rough ride, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and the Jet’s time for their shine is coming soon.
