It's amazing what happens to a team when you get a future Pro Football Hall of Famer at quarterback via trade, eh? The NFL regular season schedules have officially been released and the NY Jets have a total of six primetime games in 2023.
With new quarterback Aaron Rodgers in town and one of the best defenses in the NFL, the Jets will undoubtedly enjoy having all these games nationally televised to the football world. It's also a great sight to see that the Jets will kick off Monday Night Football with what should be an epic primetime matchup against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.
Besides that, the Jets have some great primetime games to look forward to that will ultimately prove if they'll be pretenders or contenders in 2023. With big primetime matchups against the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Miami Dolphins, it'll be a great measuring stick to see if the Jets can show up, play competitive football, and actually leave victorious.

Here's to hoping that the NY Jets have a successful season and one that finally ends their NFL playoff drought. It's been way too long and honestly, with Rodgers under center leading the charge, 2023 could very well be an unforgettable season that ends up being one that will be talked about for many years to come.
