The 2008 New York Jets season was the 49th season for the club and the 39th season in the National Football League. The team succeeded in improving upon their 4–12 record from 2007, but did not make the playoffs.

OffseasonEdit

SigningsEdit

The Jets used a large amount of salary cap room to make several high-profile acquisitions in the offseason. On February 29, the team signed former Pittsburgh Steelers left guard Alan Faneca to a five-year, $40 million contract. The deal made Faneca the highest paid offensive lineman in the National Football League.[1] The Jets then signed former Arizona Cardinals linebacker Calvin Pace to a six-year, $42 million deal.[2] Pace had 6 ½ sacks in 2007, and was considered to fit well with the Jets' 3–4 defense.[2][3] The Jets continued to attempt to improve the offensive line by signing Detroit Lions right tackle Damien Woody to a five-year $25.5 million contract.[4]

Other notable free agent signings included fullback Tony Richardson, cornerbacks Andre Woolfolk & Ty Law, tight end Bubba Franks, and running back Jesse Chatman.

Perhaps the Jets most significant offseason acquisition was veteran and former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. Favre, the NFL's all-time leader in touchdown passes, completions, passing yards, interceptions, wins and consecutive starts by a quarterback, was picked up in a trade during training camp. Favre finished the 2007 season second in MVP voting and was named starter of the NFC Pro Bowl team.

ScheduleEdit

Matchups were determined at the end of the 2007 season based on the league's scheduling formula.[10] Along with home and away games against each of their traditional rivals in the AFC East, the Jets played each of the teams from the AFC West and NFC West divisions, as per the NFL's annual rotation. The NFL revealed its schedule for all 256 regular season games on April 15, 2008.[11] One notable game in the schedule was the Jets' first game televised on the NFL Network, against the division rival New England Patriots. Game times from weeks 12 through 17 were subject to change in accordance with the NFL's flexible scheduling policy; two games were affected by this policy.

Game summaryEdit

The Jets started with quarterback Brett Favre against a Miami Dolphins team that was sporting new starting quarterback and former Jets starting quarterback Chad Pennington. Favre got the Jets on the scoreboard first in the first quarter with a play-action pass that found Jerricho Cotchery at the 10-yard line en route to a 56-yard touchdown. However, Mike Nugent sprained his thigh on the following kickoff, and when he attempted and missed a 32-yard field goal attempt, Nugent was brought out of the game. Miami then responded, with Chad Pennington marching the Dolphins down to the 6-yard line. From there, Pennington connected with Anthony Fasano for a 5-yard touchdown, tying the game. On the following drive for the Jets, coach Eric Mangini, faced with the possibility of missing a 40-yard field goal if he allowed an uncertain Mike Nugent to kick the ball, opted for Favre to continue on 4th down and 13 yards. Favre, under pressure, threw up a high ball and rookie Chansi Stuckey jumped up for the catch in the end zone, giving the Jets a 13–7 lead. Rather than put Nugent out to the field for a PAT, Mangini opted to go for two points, but the option failed.

In the 3rd quarter, Favre brought the Jets back to the red zone, moving them to the 6 yard line. From there, Favre handed off the ball to Thomas Jones, who ran in for the touchdown. Along with an extra point from Mike Nugent, the Jets now had a 20–7 lead. Due to miscommunication, Chad Pennington was forced to use two time-outs early in the 4th quarter. Late in the 4th quarter, Pennington moved Miami down the field, including connecting on a 14 yard pass from 4th-and-7 at midfield. Pennington completed an 11 yard touchdown pass to David Martin with 3:27 remaining, cutting the Jets' lead to 6 points. The Jets, who ran the clock down to the two-minute warning, went three-and-out on their drive, giving the ball back to Miami at their 34-yard line with 1:53 remaining. Pennington moved the team down the field, getting to the 18-yard line with 18 seconds on the clock. On 3rd-and-10 from the 18-yard line, Pennington attempted a throw to Ted Ginn, Jr. in the back of the end zone, but it was intercepted by Darrelle Revis, sealing the six-point win for the Jets.

With the win, the Jets began their 2008 season at 1–0.

Brett Favre, in his Jets debut, completed 15 of 22 passes for 194 yards and 2 touchdowns (with a passer rating of 125.9).

Game summaryEdit

Coming off their divisional road win over the Dolphins, the Jets played their Week 2 home opener against their AFC East foe, the New England Patriots.

Game summaryEdit

Hoping to rebound from a tough MNF road loss to the Chargers, the Jets went home, donned their New York Titans throwbacks, and played a Week 4 interconference duel with the Arizona Cardinals. After a scoreless first quarter, New York would begin their explosive second quarter. It began with QB Brett Favre completing a 12-yard TD pass to WR Laveranues Coles.

Favre orchestrated a remarkable[according to whom?] final drive, culminating in a Feely 52-yard field goal with just 3 seconds left that sent the game into overtime. The Jets nearly won in regulation, but Jerricho Cotchery was tripped up by the last Oakland defender, preventing what would have been a game-winning touchdown.

The drive included some clutch throws by Favre, particularly a connection with Dustin Keller on 3rd-and-17 from deep in the Jets' zone. It was Favre's 42nd game winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime in his career.[25] Washington was selected as AFC special teams player of the week for the first time in his career.
