Now that the official 2023 schedule has been released by the NY Jets, it's going to be one of the most interesting seasons ever in franchise history. Hopefully, the Jets can continue what they started last year but this time around, go the distance and prove that they can indeed be playoff contenders.

It won't be easy and as always, it's any given Sunday in the grand scheme of things. Make no mistake about it, the football world will have all eyes on the Jets to see if their top-notch defense, Aaron Rodgers under center, and a young core of playmakers can rise to the occasion and deliver a successful season of football.

Looking at the schedule, the Jets do have a very good shot at winning anywhere between 10-12 football games if everything goes according to plan. There will be a handful of games that will easily be the most important that will require them to do whatever it takes to leave victorious due to having such an impact during the regular season.

Let's take a look at the five most important games of the Jets 2023 schedule.

5). NY Jets Week 1: Sept. 11 vs. Buffalo Bills (Monday Night Football)

It's put up or shut up when it comes to the very first game of the regular season for the Jets. They'll be playing the AFC East champion Buffalo Bills in front of the primetime lights of Monday Night Football. This is such a great game to have to kick off a new season of hope and promise for Gang Green.

The Bills have won the AFC East for the last three straight seasons in 2020, 2021, and 2022. This is a great measuring stick kind of game for the Jets to see if they can keep up with a high-octane team like the Bills. Winning this game will set the tone for the season ahead as this is a very important game to win right out of the gates.
