2. The NY Jets will struggle in Green Bay Week 6

After a rough stretch of playing the entire AFC North, it doesn't get any easier for Gang Green, as they have back-to-back road games against NFL heavyweights, starting in Week 6 with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

Rodgers, a 4-time NFL MVP is still as good as ever, and even after losing DeVante Adams in the off-season, the Jets will still have their hands full with a talented offense, and an improving defense.

If Zach Wilson can have the game of his life and turn this into a shootout, the Jets may have a chance, but if the offense hasn't found its groove by Week 6, the Jets could be staring down a 1-5 or perhaps even 0-6 start at this point.

3. The NY Jets then have to travel to Denver in Week 7

If Aaron Rodgers with less than stellar weapons away from New York isn't bad enough, the Jets then have to trek back across the country to the Mile High City to take on Russell Wilson and the incredible Denver Broncos offense.

The Denver offense was always talented, with receivers like Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler, and an excellent running back group. Now, after adding a leader like Russell Wilson, this team automatically becomes a favorite for the Super Bowl.

If D.J. Reed and Sauce Gardner can lead this cornerback group, along with Quinnen Williams, Carl Lawson and Jermaine Johnson getting to Wilson, the Jets have a chance. Still, given the talent and the hostile environment in Denver, it's highly unlikely.
