By now, most of us are aware of the 2023 NFL schedule release and have seen the Buffalo Bills' slate of games.

Tied for most prime time games in the league with six, the Bills were given plenty of favor from the schedule creators this season.

One of those prime time matchups just so happens to be in Week 1, when the Bills travel to face Aaron Rodgers and the new-look New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.

The Jets, of course, made one of the biggest moves of the offseason when they finally completed a trade for the former Green Bay Packers quarterback. Rodgers, now with just his second team and close to the end of his career, will give it a go in New York as he looks to win a second career Super Bowl.

When looking at that opening game for the Bills, one can't help but wonder how Josh Allen and Rodgers have fared against one another during their careers.

Aaron Rodgers has faced Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills twice in his career

Since entering the league in 2018, Allen has only faced Rodgers twice and holds a record of 1-1 against the Packers legend.

The loss happened to be in Allen's rookie season, and in just his fourth career start. Allen had a rough outing, going 16-for-33, finishing with just 151 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions. He was also sacked twice by Green Bay.

Rodgers, meanwhile, finished that game going 22-for-40, for 298 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Rodgers was also sacked twice.

The Packers won that game 22-0. The next time these two teams would meet, though, things would go very differently.

Last season, Allen and Rodgers met again, only this time, the Bills came away with a 27-17 victory.

Allen finished that game 13-for-25, throwing for 213 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He was sacked twice. The Bills also rushed for 153 yards as a team that day.

Rodgers, meanwhile, finished 19-for-30, throwing for 203 yards and two touchdowns with one interception.
