1. Aaron Rodgers

Coming in at No. 1 on the rankings, the only NFC QB to make this list, Aaron Rodgers really does push for this number one spot The 2005 first-round pick boasts a career record of 139-66-1 and has shattered records along the way. Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks this game has ever seen.

In his 213 NFL appearances, he has thrown for an outrageous 449 touchdowns along with a 104.5 passer rating. Rodgers is coming off a season in which he won his fourth MVP award where he threw for 37 touchdowns to just four interceptions.

He has led the league in passer rating over the last two seasons, and during the season in which he picked up his first MVP award, Rodgers broke the NFL record altogether, in which he scored the highest passer rating in history at 122.5.

The former Super Bowl champion has not stopped there with his records, and in 2018, he recorded the lowest interception percentage at 0.3 percent, another NFL record. The most accurate QB in NFL history presents a challenge different from the other QBs on this list.

The Jets will face a QB with immeasurable experience and maturity. Rodgers has witnessed all there is to see during his NFL career, and the Jets will face a Packers team in Green Bay led by a man who provides stature and has an intimidating pocket presence.

It is near impossible for a defense to influence Rodgers — he tends to dictate the play of games no matter his opponent and that is highlighted through his consistency.

A player who commands so much respect on the field, the Jets will hope that the departure of his go-to WR1, Davante Adams, will have somewhat of an effect on his play and that he will not be performing at quite the MVP level he has the last two years.

No matter what though, Rodgers' golden arm will make this a grueling trip to Wisconsin and what looks to be up there as the hardest road game of the upcoming season for Gang Green.
