As the New York Jets open the 2016 NFL regular season looking strong, an explosive offensive attack puts them on pace for greatness.
Even though we’re only a few weeks into the 2016 NFL regular season, it’s apparent that quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets are clicking on all cylinders. Let’s take a moment to appreciate just how refreshing this year’s Jets’ offense truly is.
In just two games, the Harvard grad has thrown for 563 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. At this rate, Fitzpatrick is on pace to rack up 4,504 yards, 24 touchdowns, and only eight interceptions this season.
His top wideouts are also taking a bite out of the “Big Apple.” Decker is on pace for a 64-reception, 1,304-yard, 16-touchdown season. Quincy Enunwa is on pace for 104 receptions, 1,168 yards, and 8 touchdowns. Even Brandon Marshall is on pace for 1,064 yards if he can overcome his MCL injury.
The 30-year-old running back Matt Forte is taking things a step further, looking to make history. He’s on pace to bust out 2,000+ yards and lead the league in rushing. Does 1,568 rushing yards, 544 receiving yards, and 24 touchdowns maybe even sound MVP-worthy to you?
Sure, this is all hypothetical, but, at the very least, Gang Green is headed in the right direction.
