5 Bold Predictions for New York Jets' Week 4 Matchup Against Tennessee

The New York Jets have steamrolled into a relevant light in the early going of the new season.

Gang Green has a major opportunity to continue turning the tides on doubters this week. Rex Ryan's Jets seemingly play their best football when nobody gives them a chance.

That mantra remains prominent in 2013, as the Jets look toward taking the next step in becoming a legitimate playoff contender.

A road win over the Tennessee Titans would propel the Jets to 3-1 heading into a Monday night showdown with the Atlanta Falcons, who are off to a slow start.

The Jets made headlines in their ugly Week 3 win over the Buffalo Bills, racking up 20 penalties to become the first team in 62 years to win a game after being excessively flagged.

However, the Jets have plenty to be happy about after a 513-yard explosion on offense.

Rookie signal-caller Geno Smith became the first Jets quarterback to throw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns in a single game, fueling his team to victory despite tossing two interceptions.

Newfound lead back Bilal Powell also racked up 149 rushing yards on 27 carries after Chris Ivory aggravated a hamstring injury that hindered his activity during the preseason.

In addition, the Jets' "salty" defense stymied opposing QB E.J. Manuel, recording a whopping total of eight sacks.

If the Jets can decrease their tendency to commit bone-headed penalties, they could soon establish themselves as a potential contender for a playoff spot.

Here are five bold predictions for the Jets' Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans.
