The 2023 NFL regular season finally kicked off with the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Detroit Lions.

Of course there will also be a fair share of games played on Sunday, then on September 11th, the Buffalo Bills will travel to MetLife to face a potentially dangerous New York Jets. A team that was arguably a quarterback away from being a top contender last season.

In 2022, the Jets were not a bad team by any means, especially on the defensive side of the ball, ranking fourth in the NFL in team defense.

This defense allowed the third fewest passing yards, fourth fewest points, second in quarterback hits, and seventh in total sacks. These impressive defensive stats are with a poor offense ranked 29th in scoring, including being second to last in the NFL in passing scores.

The 2022 Jets roster includes a lot of young talent, including the 2022 Offensive Rookie of the Year wide receiver Garrett Wilson, second year running back Breece Hall, and 2022 Defensive Rookie of the Year cornerback Sauce Gardner.

This year's Jets roster had some key acquisitions in free agency, as they would bring in Mecole Hardman, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, and most notably Dalvin Cook and Aaron Rodgers. Most fans and analysts believe that the Jets were a quarterback away from reaching their full potential, which makes Jets team all the more scary with the Rodgers signing.

Although Rodgers is reaching 40, he's still got plenty left in the tank and will help make the Jets team all the more dangerous. With all of this being said, how can the Bills defeat this Jets team?
