Jets 2023 schedule will test the defense

The addition of Aaron Rodgers has created a lot of buzz, but a tall task awaits the Jets this season. Rodgers and the offense will need to keep up with several of the game’s elite quarterbacks and the defense will have to do its part if the Jets are to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2010. With the AFC East, NFC East, and AFC West all on the schedule, Rodgers will go toe-to-toe with other future Hall of Famers and will have to develop a rapport with his new teammates quickly. As it stands, the Jets haven’t had a winning record since 2015 and have finished last in the AFC East in six of the last seven seasons.

New York Jets schedule this year

Every team in the AFC East draws a tough schedule to some degree because 14 of the 17 games will come against the AFC West, NFC East, and the six games against division foes. However, the Jets do have a leg up on the others because of a last-place schedule that also includes the Browns on the road, as well as the Texans and the Falcons at home. The Jets do get the Chiefs and Chargers at home as well, so the two toughest games on paper in the AFC West are at the Meadowlands.

The Jets only play back-to-back road games twice and have extra time to prep twice including what could be a big Week 18 game against the Patriots.
