New York Jets Schedule 2023: Dates, Times, TV Schedule, and More

With Aaron Rodgers stating his intention to head to the New York Jets, all eyes will be on the green side of New York and their 2023 schedule. After flashing promise with a carousel of options at the quarterback position last year, could the Jets’ schedule see them heading to the playoffs for the first time since 2010?

The remaining three games on their schedule will come against the remaining two AFC teams that finished last in their division, as well as their “17th game crossover” against the Atlanta Falcons, who finished last in the NFC South in 2022.

Jets Strength of Schedule

The Jets and the AFC East, in general, have a really tough schedule in 2023. Based on last year’s records, New York has the sixth-toughest schedule in the league. Their respective opponents combined to go 155-129-3 for a .545 record. All four of the AFC East teams have schedules that project to be among the seven toughest in the league in 2023.

Jets Record Prediction

With Rodgers potentially under center, the prediction for the Jets in 2023 looks much different than it did with Zach Wilson. Taking on the league’s sixth-hardest schedule with Wilson under center would have made sledding tough for New York. However, with Rodgers playing QB, you could make the case that double-digit wins are very much in reach for the Jets this year.

Still, it will certainly not be easy. The Bills, Chiefs, Eagles, and Cowboys are all expected to be tough games, and the Dolphins have improved their defense by acquiring Jalen Ramsey. The games against the Chargers and Patriots will also be tough. It’s hard to project the Jets to win more than 12 games this year with their schedule, but it would also be a surprise to see them win fewer than eight with a talented roster.
