    Jets 2009 opponents

    Jets Know Who Their 2009 Foes Are
    Published: 12-28-08

    It is one of the several rites of the regular-season finale, along with putting the playoff tiebreakers to bed and determining the next spring's first-round draft position. It's nailing down the following season's opponents.

    The Jets, after the fourth loss in their last five games by 24-17 to Miami on Sunday, know who their 16 foes will be next season, and know that they will be a tough 16 — with games against the Titans, Colts, Falcons and Panthers at the top of the slate, the Jets' strength of opponents' schedule will be a difficult .568 (145-110-1).

    The full team and league schedules won't be released by the NFL until April, but here is a quick look at the Jets' '09 opponents:

    HOME

    AFC East — Buffalo (7-9), Miami (11-5), New England (11-5)

    AFC North — Cincinnati (4-11-1): Bengals won their last three to pass Browns for third place, and return to the Meadowlands next year, where they have lost seven straight to the Jets.

    AFC South — Tennessee (13-3): AFC's top seed and a Jets opponent for fourth straight year but for the first time at home since 2003). Jacksonville (5-11): Also the Jaguars' first Meadowlands visit since '03, comeback win for Green & White.

    NFC South — Atlanta (11-5): Jets host Falcons, led in by Matt Ryan and John Abraham, for first times in 11 years. Carolina (12-4) Panthers, who dueled Giants for NFC's top seed, last played Jets at Meadowlands in '98.

    AWAY

    AFC East — Buffalo (7-9), Miami (11-5), New England (11-5)

    AFC South — Indianapolis (12-4): First game in Lucas Oil Stadium against Peyton Manning and Colts, who had a strong '08 finish. Houston (8-8): Jets' only game at Reliant Stadium was '03 come-from-behind win over Texans.

    AFC West — Oakland (5-11): Green & White, who enjoyed their Oakland years a while back, return to the Bay area for the second straight year vs. the Silver & Black.

    NFC South — New Orleans (8-8): Drew Brees and Saints' prolific offense will be waiting in Jets' first Superdome visit since '01 Sunday night triumph. Tampa Bay (9-7): Jets haven't played at the Buccaneers since Wayne Chrebet "Flashlight Game" win in 2000.

    Its funny, I live in Cicny now and in late Novemeber, i was saying too bad there is no way the Jets will play Cincy next year. They were 1-9-1 and we were 8-3. Sure enough, we are playing.

    Theres not much thats based on this year's performances. Only 2 games each year are based on your prior year's record.

    The NFL considers Oakland a rivalry game for the Jets, because Al Davis hates the Jets passionately, and Woody Johnson is largely indifferent towards the Raiders (probably scared to death of Raiders fans).

    That has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    NFL schedules are determined years in advance using a pre-determined formula of who plays who and where.

    The Jets will be extremely lucky to squeak out 3 or 4 wins next yera.

    It's the worst case scenario to just miss the playoffs. No playoff fun and you get a hard schedule. Exactly what happened to Cleveland last year and look what they did this year.
