Jets Playoff Chances, Odds & Prediction for 2022 NFL Season
The New York Jets failed to make an impact in Robert Saleh's first season at the helm, going 4-13 — their sixth-straight sub-.500 campaign. Although the team is looking much stronger on paper following a series of offseason moves, Jets fans are cautiously optimistic.
Forget about a Super Bowl: the Jets' primary goal next season is to simply make the playoffs. They haven't participated in the postseason since 2010, making it interesting to see if they can thwart their regular-season demons and end that streak.
Let's break down New York's playoff chances in 2022 using odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

New York is available at +700 to make the postseason. That equates to an implied probability of 12.5%, suggesting that the Jets have their work cut out for them in 2022.

Jets 2022 Season Prediction
I think that the Jets played worse than they actually were in 2021. Saleh has now had more time to bond with his players and the fact that management made some solid offseason additions should have things looking more promising this fall.
Zach Wilson is likely the biggest question mark behind the Jets' success. After an underwhelming year, rumors have swirled that he's been struggling during New York's minicamp. If he can't turn things around when the regular season starts, it could be another long year.
I don't think the Jets are ready for the playoffs yet, but I do see them (barely) hitting the over on their projected win total.
