The NFL announced that the Jets will be at 49ers in Week One and Brian Costello of the New York Post reports that they’ll be at home against the Patriots on Thursday night in Week Three. They’ll then reportedly host the Bills on Monday night in Week Five and travel to Pittsburgh for Sunday Night Football in Week Six before hosting the Texans on a Thursday in Week Nine and hosting the Colts on a Sunday night in Week 11.

In addition to those games, the Jets will have another standalone game in Week Five against the Vikings in London.

All those parties will be hoping for better results this time around.
