With a strong defense led by the disruptive Quinnen Williams up front and shutdown cornerback Sauce Gardner on the back end, along with wideout Garrett Wilson and running back Breece Hall coming off impressive rookie seasons, the thinking in New York heading into the 2023 season was that the only missing piece for the Jets was at quarterback. The beleaguered franchise hopes they’ve solved the puzzle of returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2010 by trading for four-time MVP and Super Bowl-winning QB Aaron Rodgers. 

The former Packer will face a stiff test at home against Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills in his first game as a Jet in prime time in New York (OK, technically New Jersey). The Bills have made the playoffs the last four years but are still looking to get to their first Super Bowl in 30 years. Kickoff for the Bills and Jets on Monday Night Football is set for tonight at 8:15 p.m. ET (5:15 p.m. PT) on ESPN.
