The NFL Schedule for 2012 was released Tuesday. Here are some thoughts on the slate of games facing the New York Jets in the upcoming NFL season.
- The Jets face three 2011 playoff teams in their first five weeks. Not an easy start for a team trying to recover from the fiasco of last season. Or, for Mark Sanchez as he tries to hold off Tim Tebow for the starting quarterback job.
- Start re-arranging those Thanksgiving plans, Jets' fans. You won't want to miss the Thanksgiving night game against the New England Patriots.
- Tebow might not be looking forward to the December 9 game in Jacksonville against the Jaguars. Jacksonville fans most likely are, though.
