Odell Beckham Jr. got us all hot and bothered late Wednesday, only to pour a spot of cold water on our enthusiasm.

Just check out what he commented on Jamal Adams' IG activity.

OK, that's not bad at all.
The New York factor, the recent history of these two teams...we can get into it.
Of course, the Jets served as the punching bag last season for Baker Mayfield's coming out party, with a fourth-quarter surge and tough road performance from Sam Darnold setting the tone for a next-generation QB battle.
Now that Mayfield's WR room has become significantly juiced up, we consider this a fitting way to open the new league slate. Guess the Pats will have to beat up on some other patsy while this battle rages. No worries.
