Aaron Rodgers' first regular season game as a member of the New York Jets has been revealed hours ahead of the 2023 NFL Schedule Release Thursday (May 11) night.
The Jets will host their AFC East Division rival Buffalo Bills in their Week 1 matchup at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, September 11, the league announced Thursday morning.
".@AaronRodgers12 debut with the @nyjets? Week 1 on MNF vs. @JoshAllenQB and the @BuffaloBills," the NFL tweeted.
