The New York Jets came in to the 2015 NFL season with high hopes.

They are living up to their lofty expectations of themselves, with new head coach Todd Bowles guiding the Jets to a 2-1 start to open up the 2015 Campaign. The Jets opened up the season with wins against the Browns and Colts before succumbing to a loss against the Philadelphia Eagles last weekend that had to come as a big blow.

The Jets will be looking to bounce back in London and they got some good news with wide receiver Eric Decker making a return to practice.
