NFL Schedules By Distance: Raiders Will Have Some Long Flights…. Jets Not So Much

The NFL released the full 2019 NFL Regular Season Schedules on Wednesday Night. There are few things that players, coaches and front office people look at when they get the schedule. When’s the bye week? How many prime time games? 

Another important element is how much travel will there be over the course of the schedule.

The Raiders have a brutal looking travel schedule, with a trip to London and no home games from Week 3 through Week 8. 

By comparison, the Jets schedule is very light on travel distance. The games that the Jets will have to travel to include Buffalo, Miami, New England, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Philadelphia and Washington DC. Traveling to those cities totals just 6,688 miles for the entire regular season.
