The 2018 season was the New York Jets' 49th in the National Football League, their 59th overall and their fourth and final under head coach Todd Bowles. In Week 3, the Jets lost to the Browns by a score of 21-17, becoming the first team to lose to the Browns since the Chargers lost 20-17 on Christmas Eve 2016. The win by the Browns ended a 19-game winless streak. Week 6 marked the first season the Jets have scored 40+ points in multiple games since the 2008 season. They were officially mathematically eliminated from playoff contention for the 8th consecutive season after the Titans defeated the Jaguars 30-9 in Week 14. This also marks the first time since 2016 to feature pro bowlers. The Jets failed to improve on their 5-11 record from the previous season with a 38-3 blowout loss in Week 17 to the Patriots and finished 4-12 and dead last in the AFC East. Following the season finale, the Jets fired Bowles.[1]
