The New York Jets are having people take notice of their team.
While the team has suffered over the last decade with disappointing seasons, 2022 is a different year for them.
They sit in the AFC East with a winning record of 7-4 and are playoff contenders this season.
However, the biggest shock from them comes from TV networks fighting over them.
So what’s the scoop over TV networks now taking notice and pride in airing games featuring the Jets?
NFL Reporter Tweets How Networks Are Fighting To Air The Jets/Bills Game
SNY NFL reporter Connor Hughes came out on Twitter to say CBS stopped the NFL from flexing the Jets/Bills game.
Quite the sign of how things have changed for #NYJ. Wanted by two networks.

With the Jets holding a win over the Buffalo Bills this season, it is piquing the interest of the NFL.
While CBS is protecting the game, it also shows how NBC was looking to this game as a better alternative than their scheduled matchup.
With the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos game being the original matchup for NBC, it’s clear why they wanted to flex the game.
For NBC, they see no competition with the Chiefs and Broncos, as the Chiefs can easily dominate the Broncos.
However, they see the appeal of having two playoff contenders showcased during primetime.
With the Jets now switching to Mike White as their starting quarterback, it gives their offense some added spice.
While CBS gets to keep this game, it’s clear the Jets are no longer a joke in the NFL and are turning back into a respected NFL team.
