The Jets are fielding the youngest team in the league, and at times, it shows.

It is something to keep in mind when watching these Jets. To use Robert Saleh’s phrasing, they are “ridiculously young.” The Jets have had 1,739 snaps from rookies through five games, the most in the NFL. The team in second place (the Steelers) is 379 snaps behind the Jets. The Jets are second in the league in offensive snaps by rookies and fourth in defensive snaps by rookies, per Tru Media.

The Jets have four rookie starters/major contributors on offense and four on defense. It leads to some rocky days as the rookies learn their way.
