No, the Jets don’t open with the Dolphins. Despite the anticipation of matching up against Jason Taylor’s former team, complete with showtime wide receiver Brandon Marshall, that matchup will be in Miami on week 3 and again on Dec. 12 when the Jets host the Dolphins.

The NFL has given the Jets a worthy opponent in Week 1, when the Ravens will be the first opponent for the Jets at the New Meadowlands Stadium on Monday night on ESPN. Rex Ryan’s former team will offer plenty of storylines, and a competitive game.

The Jets could face their old quarterback Brett Favre when the Vikings come to New York on Oct. 11, for another Monday night game. Favre has yet to reveal whether or not he plans to come back yet. In another matchup of familiar faces, the Jets are in Cleveland on Nov. 14, Eric Mangini's new home and where Ryan's brother is the defensive coordinator.

As for weather, the Jets won’t get a break from the cold late in the season. The visit to the Dolphins takes place on Sept. 26 and the last four games are, in order, hosting the Dolphins, traveling to Pittsburgh and Chicago, and closing the regular season when the Bills visit.

I pick the wins and losses. Keep in mind this is my first stab at this and I'm no Nostradamus.
