New York Jets fans haven’t had much to celebrate during the past decade.
The team had one winning season and zero playoff appearances between 2011 and 2021.
Worst yet, they had a 6-27 record over the past two seasons, despite the transition from Adam Gase to Robert Saleh.
This year, the Jets might have assembled the draft class to help turn their fortunes around.
Aside from cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, they also selected wide receiver Garrett Wilson and defensive end Jermaine Johnson II in the first round.
They also took running back Breece Hall in round two, and he is projected to be the starter in Week 1.
But if their picks and signings don’t pan out, their awful September record might continue.

NFL on CBS shared the worst record in September among NFL teams over the last three seasons.
The Jets have the worst mark at 0-9, while the Washington Commanders, Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, and Miami Dolphins are all tied at 2-8.
In 2019, the Jets went 0-3 in September via defeats against the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, and New England Patriots.
A year later, they lost to the Bills, San Francisco 49ers, and Indianapolis Colts.
Last season, they fell victim to the Carolina Panthers, the Patriots, and the Denver Broncos.
The Jets played four of those games at Metlife Stadium.
Another Uphill September Schedule For The Jets
The Jets will face three of the four teams in the AFC North, which is one of the toughest divisions in the league.
After opening their season on September 11 against the Baltimore Ravens, they will go on the road in Week 2 to face the Cleveland Browns.
They will be back at home for Week 3 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Jets will complete their AFC North challenge when they clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4 on October 2.
