Week 1 of the 2015 NFL season is finally here and for the New York Jets, they will be starting their season at home against the Cleveland Browns.

Both the Jets and the Browns are coming off of poor 2014 seasons, and 2015 gives new hope that anything can happen. For the Jets, expectations are much higher than the Browns after an excellent offseason that saw players like Darrelle Revis, Brandon Marshall, and Antonio Cromartie all join the team.

The Jets are slight favorites at home against the Browns despite the training camp controversy that led to Ryan Fitzpatrick becoming the starting quarterback after Geno Smith was punched in the face.

If the Jets are going to be a playoff team in 2015, Week 1 is a game that they need to win a tough division. The Browns are projected to struggle once again in 2015 with a lot of issues on the offensive side of the ball. The new and improved Jets’ defense should have no problem exploiting a likely weak Browns’ offense.

Week 1 can be wild with teams not sharp after the preseason, but this is still a game that the Jets should win.

Here are five bold predictions for the first game of the season for the Jets against the Browns.
