During the season, Bent's Game Analysis charts games for some of the Jets' upcoming opponents, enabling a break down of what to watch out for on gameday...

The first week of the season is always a tough one to gauge. Even the most convincing of wins can soon be put into context when you realize the following week the team you beat is going to struggle equally against all their opponents. In 1981, the Jets lost their opener 31-0 against the Bills but made the postseason for the first time since the 1960s. In 1997, they 41-3 against Seattle, but missed the postseason. Even as recently as 2010, the Jets opened with a listless 10-9 loss at home to the Ravens, but then won five straight and ended up with their best record in recent memory. In other words, the Jets can only beat what's in front of them, so all we can do is consider what the Browns have going for them.
