As the Jets prepare for their Wild Card match up against Peyton Manning and the Colts, the opponents the Jets will be facing in the 2011-2012 season have been released. 

Obviously the Jets will be facing the Bills, Dolphins, and Patriots at home and on the road. But what we have found out was that the Jets will be facing the NFC East, the AFC West, the Ravens in Baltimore and the Jaguars at the Meadowlands. 

The NFC East has the Giants, which will be considered a home game for both teams. But it is really a home game for the Jets? We would have to think that this game will either be on NBC or ESPN, but we will have to wait and see.

The NFC East also has the Eagles, and the game will take place in Philly. The Eagles may or may not have Michael Vick next. If they do, this will be a fantastic matchup, and if not, it could be a bad game for both sides.

The Jets will also play the Cowboys at home and the Redskins, who will be without Donovan McNabb, on the road at FedEx Field. 

If L.T. returns next season, he will play vs his former team, the San Diego Chargers. They will also play the division winner, the Chiefs, at home and play Oakland and Denver on the road. 

Rex Ryan will be making his return to Baltimore as a head coach. They will also play the Jags at home, trying to get revenge for their lose last season.

It should be a very interesting season for the Jets next season.

Yes, I know Jet fans, you wish the Jets would be playing the NFC West next season. But unfortunately, they are not. 

But looking at the schedule, this should be pretty easy, with the only hard games against the Patriots, Chargers, Giants, Eagles, Ravens and Chiefs. With the Bills twice, Dolphins twice, Broncos, Raiders, Cowboys (who could be hard next year), Redskins and Jaguars, this is a very easy schedule.
