2. The NY Jets will struggle with Joe Burrow and the AFC Champs in Week 3
The Jets surprisingly knocked off Joe Burrow and the Bengals last season, and while that stands to show what this team is capable of, the Bengals have only gotten better after their Super Bowl run.
New York may have stolen C.J. Uzomah from Cincinnati, but led by Burrow, this squad still has talents like Ja'Marr Chase, Joe Mixon, and Tee Higgins. Still, after 2021, the Jets may just have a shot in this one.
Burrow is climbing into the upper echelon of NFL QBs more and more by the year, and if he is on, the Bengals can beat any team on any day. For a young Jets squad looking to find themselves, this offense will be a very tough one to handle.
3. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will be tough in Week 6
After Aaron Rodgers confirmed he'd return to the Packers in 2022, the biggest news was still yet to come, and that was that Green Bay traded away Davante Adams to the Raiders, waving goodbye to Rodgers' favorite target.
With Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon in the backfield, along with a solid group of wide receivers, it may not be the most glamorous unit, but given the back-to-back MVP at QB, they're always going to be tough to handle.
In past years, the Jets have been able to compete with Rodgers and the Packers, mainly in shootout-style games. And while they'd prefer to shut the Packers' attack down, that may be the only way this team can take the win on the road in Week 6.
