4. NY Jets vs. Green Bay Packers (9-5, .643)

This one might be the most surprising on the list. The Green Bay Packers are one of the NFL's most storied and successful franchises, but the Jets have managed to win nine of the 14 games they've played against them.

This, of course, includes the Jets' dominant 27-10 victory over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers last season — the only time the Jets have defeated Rodgers in his career.

The Packers won the first meeting between these teams in 1973 before the Jets managed to win eight of their next nine games against Green Bay. That streak was ended by a sluggish 9-0 Packers win in 2010.

There might be some added intrigue to this matchup the next time these teams meet, although Rodgers and the Jets will have to wait at least another year for that to happen.

3. NY Jets vs. Minnesota Vikings (8-4, .667)

Make it back-to-back NFC North opponents, as the Jets also have a winning record against the Minnesota Vikings. The Jets have won eight of their 12 meetings with Minnesota, although they've actually lost their last three.

The last time the Jets defeated the Vikings was in 2010 — a 29-20 victory spurred on by five Nick Folk field goals and a Dwight Lowery pick-six. That was the end of a stretch that saw the Jets win eight of their first win games against the Vikings.

Unfortunately, the tide has shifted in recent years. The Jets lost 27-22 to the Vikings last season, with an untimely Braxton Berrios drop serving as the nail in the coffin.

Still, despite their lack of recent success, the Jets have historically been the better team in this cross-conference rivalry. The Jets have a sizable lead in the all-time series.
