NY Jets @ Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys also led the NFL alongside the Packers last year with five primetime games, so it seems very obvious that one of the networks would be interested in a primetime matchup of the Cowboys versus the Jets. But let's add one more wrinkle into this game to make it even spicier for the fans at home.

What if the recently released Ezekiel Elliott joins the Jets roster this offseason, alongside Rodgers? It's not as crazy as it sounds, as New York currently has the sixth-best odds of acquiring his talents.

With Breece Hall still recovering from injury and the team looking to add more running back depth, Elliott could be a good fit as he looks for redemption.

Whether Elliott joins the Jets or not, this primetime matchup seems very feasible. Rodgers is still one of the biggest names in the NFL, while the Dallas Cowboys are still the biggest draw in football (regardless of their record). As a result, it seems like a perfect fit for these two to play on Thursday, Sunday, or Monday night.

NY Jets vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Los Angeles Chargers fans are probably still recovering from that terrible loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars a few months ago, but they're still a fun team to watch.

Justin Herbert is turning into one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, and that matchup of him versus Rodgers should be good enough for a primetime game.

The Chargers had five primetime games last year and shouldn't be much worse, so it would make a lot of sense to pair them against the Jets in a big game this year.

The Chargers have been a disappointing franchise, despite making the playoffs with Herbert, but they don't typically disappoint in primetime games. They've had plenty of exciting finishes, and that should be no different if they faced off against the Jets in a big game this season.
