The NY Jets are set to enter what might just be one of the most important seasons in franchise history. The biggest reason for that is that this team is facing sky-high expectations in 2023.

No longer can the Jets be content with just being competitive in games. Even contending for a wild-card spot could be setting the bar low. The Jets enter the 2023 season with legitimate Super Bowl aspirations. That’s not just talk either.

But for the Jets to truly establish themselves as one of the league’s premier teams, they’ll need to first prove it on the field. The only way to shed the losing narrative that has followed the Jets for decades is by winning games.

The Jets’ 2023 schedule features no shortage of intriguing and enticing matchups, but what exactly should fans expect from the team this season? Here is a look at the entire Jets’ schedule with predictions for each game.

Week 1: Sept. 11 vs. Buffalo Bills (Monday Night Football)

The new-look Jets will play host to a team that many believe is still the favorite to win the AFC East in 2023, the Buffalo Bills. All division games will be important this season, but if the Jets want a legitimate shot to win the division, this feels like a must-win.

The Jets pulled off a stunner against the Bills at home last season, winning a close 20-17 affair thanks to some late defensive heroics and a subpar Josh Allen performance. That was with Zach Wilson at quarterback too.

I think the Jets steal another one against the Bills at home this season. Aaron Rodgers and company win a crucial divisional matchup that keeps the Jets at the forefront of the AFC East race.
