Jets’ opponents, draft slots now set for next season

ORCHARD PARK – With the 2021 season over, it’s time to take a look at the 2022 Jets schedule.

Their opponents are set, but the order will be determined by the league in the spring. Their home schedule is: Jaguars, Ravens, Bengals, Bears, Lions, Bills, Patriots and Dolphins.

It’s not a big list of games, but visits from Lamar Jackson from Baltimore and Joe Burrow from Cincinnati will add a bit of excitement. A showdown between Zach Wilson and Justin Fields of Chicago, two first-round picks in 2021, is also a highlight.

The route schedule is as follows: Broncos, Steelers, Browns, Packers, Vikings, Seahawks Bills, Patriots and Dolphins.

The Jets should see Aaron Rodgers but will it be in Green Bay or Denver? Who will be the Steelers quarterback? Will Russell Wilson be the Seahawks quarterback? There are some great trips here for Jets fans who want to travel with the team.

The Jets will have the 4th and 10th picks in the 2022 draft.

The Jets had been aiming for the fourth pick for some time now, and it got stuck on Sunday with the loss to the Bills. This is the first time the Jets will pick No. 4 overall since 2006, when they selected D’Brickashaw Ferguson with the pick.

The 10th pick is that of the Seahawks in Jamal Adams’ trade. Seattle fought off the Jets with their 38-30 victory over the Cardinals. The pick could have been as high as seven if Seattle had lost.

There is a pretend play for the Jets after the Jaguars and Lions wins on Sunday. Those results would have given the Jets the top pick in the overall standings had they not beaten the Jaguars two weeks ago. They would have been 3-14 and had the upper hand over the Jaguars due to their schedule strength.

WR Jamison Crowder left the game in the first half with a calf injury. Crowder had been battling the calf for a few weeks and missed the previous two games because of it. Crowder caught a 16-yard catch on Sunday before going out. It’s probably the end of Crowder’s time with the Jets. They signed Crowder to a three-year, $ 28.5 million contract in 2019 and renegotiated the deal in the spring to cut his 2021 salary in half. Crowder will be a free agent and he’s unlikely to be. back.

Crowder has had 51 catches for 447 yards and two touchdowns this season. He led the team in receptions for the third consecutive season.

Inactive for the match were QB Mike White, RB La’Mical Perine, OL Greg Senat, DL Jabari Zuniga, DL Jonathan Marshall, CB Isaiah Dunn and RB Austin Walter.
