How have the New York Jets performed in recent years, following their bye week?
The New York Jets are in the midst of a season that nobody expected. Ten games in, the only thing we were supposed to be talking about was whether the team would be selecting Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen. Most of us believed they wouldn’t win four games all season, now they have won four out of ten. However the last part of the season goes, the first ten games have been far more competitive than any of us expected.
Now we hit the bye week. It’s time for the team to heal up lingering injuries and get focused on a second half of the season that yields tough opponents. With the Panthers, Chiefs, Saints and Patriots on the final portion of the schedule, it’s going to be difficult to foresee any type of playoff run. However, as the first half proved, this is why they play the games. It’s going to be fun regardless.
But how might they do? We don’t know, but in the bye we can go back and look at the recent history. John F, Kennedy once said, “We can’t know where we’re going, ’til we know where we’ve been”. With that, let’s look back and see how the Jets have done after the bye. Specifically we are looking back at the last ten years.
We start with 2007.
