New York Jets 2024 schedule leaks tracker: The latest news, rumors | Sporting News

Published

on

The 2024 regular season will feature the much-anticipated return of Aaron Rodgers to the field.

Rodgers’ Jets debut as the team’s starting quarterback entered in sadness when he suffered a torn Achilles four snaps into a Monday night matchup against the Bills. While he flirted with a return throughout the 2023 season, Rodgers should be fully healthy for his second season opener with the Jets.

When and where that will be is anyone’s guess, though. The NFL plans to announce the full slate of 2024 games on May 15. We know the Chiefs and Ravens will kick off the season in Kansas City, but the rest of the schedule remains a mystery. However, the NFL did announce the Jets will begin their season on the road in San Francisco
against the 49ers on Monday Night Football.

The only other thing we know for sure about the Jets is which teams
they will definitely play this season
. We just don’t know at what point in the season or at what times the games will be held. Based on 2023 records and implied win totals, the Jets should have one of the easiest schedules
in the league this season.

Here are the latest leaks, rumors and rumblings around the Jets’ 2024 NFL schedule.

New York Jets 2024 schedule leaks tracker: The latest news, rumors

Week 1 at 49ers

The Jets officially open their season on the road in San Francisco against the 49ers. The game will be played on Sept. 9 at 8:15 p.m. on Monday Night Football on ESPN. It’s the second consecutive MNF season-opener for New York.

49ers tight end George Kittle hinted at the possible Week 1 showdown on his Instagram page on Monday before the official announcement Tuesday morning.

This game has a lot of storylines already.
Head coach Robert Saleh would return to his old club where he made a name for himself as a defensive coordinator. Aaron Rodgers would also face the team he lost to in the 2021 NFC divisional round and 2019 NFC title games. Both teams feature two of the best defenses in the NFL as well. And then there are the Deebo Samuel and Malachi Corley comparisons that’ll undoubtedly be discussed all game. This would be a fun season-opener.

Potential international game vs. Vikings or Browns

There is a rumor New York will travel to London to play the Vikings this year. Per an unaffiliated X account, @NerdingonNFL, Jets vs. Vikings is one on the table for one of the three London games this season. The Vikings were given an international game by the NFL, so this was always on the table. What’s interesting is this was supposed to be an away opponent for the Jets in 2024, meaning this would technically be a neutral site for both teams.

The Jaguars are another away opponent who will play a game in London, meaning the Jets have two spots at playing overseas in 2024. The Browns announced they’ll have fan experiences in Jacksonville, meaning the Jaguars will likely face either the Jets or the Patriots in London.

It’s unlikely the Jets would get more than one international game in a season. The Jets are 1-1 in international games: New York lost to the Falcons in 2021 and beat the Dolphins in 2015.
