The complete 2023 NFL schedule for the Buffalo Bills will be released later tonight but some games have already been confirmed. On Wednesday, the NFL announced that the Bills' game in London would be played in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Then on Thursday morning, the Bills opening game for the 2023 NFL season will be on the road against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. This is the second consecutive year the Bills have a primetime game on the road to open the season as they played the Los Angeles Rams in the first game of the season on Thursday Night Football.

The Bills are hoping for a similar result to last season's game as they would win easily against the Rams by a final score of 31-10.

Buffalo Bills have a good opportunity to get an early lead in the AFC East race

This season the Buffalo Bills are going to be looking for their fourth consecutive AFC East division title and will be going against a New York Jets team that looks poised to be in the discussion for that top spot.

This offseason the Jets made some significant changes to their offense, none bigger than trading for former MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers. There is no question that there will be plenty of buzz around this game as it will be Rodgers first regular season game with his new team.

However, there will be plenty of additional storylines like the potential return of key players on both sides as Jets' running back Breece Hall and Bills' pass rusher Von Miller will be looking to return from torn ACLs the prior season. It remains to be seen if either will be ready but if they are, this could have major impacts on the outcome of the game.
