Week 6: NY Jets @ Green Bay Packers - 1 pm ET

The Jets are getting the Packers after they play a Week 5 game in London against the New York Giants. Normally, NFL teams will get a bye week after an international game, but that's not the case in this situation.

Some would argue that playing the Jets at home is the closest thing to a bye week scenario. Only the Jets can change that narrative.

The storyline heading into this one is the LaFleur brothers squaring off against each other at historic Lambeau Stadium. With Jets offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur competing against his older brother Matt on opposing sidelines, the connections run deep between these two coaching staffs.

Robert Saleh and Green Bay head coach Matt LaFleur were graduate assistants together at Michigan State and were groomsmen at each other's weddings.

This is a tough spot for the Jets. Although, New York is 8-5 all-time over Green Bay in head-to-head meetings, and they have won in Green Bay in the past (the Jets are 4-3 all-time at Lambeau), this is what would be called a measuring stick game for the Jets.

Unless you are a Jets fan, very few brave souls will pick them to beat Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Green Bay. 

Prediction: LOSS (1-5)

The Jets might be catching the Packers at the right time, but there is no right time when it comes to facing Aaron Rodgers. You have to like Green Bay in this setting. 1-5 seems imminent.
