Week 1 of the 2023 NFL season will wrap up with a terrific matchup on Monday Night Football as the Buffalo Bills visit the New York Jets. The AFC East Division is expected to be extremely tight this season, and this is going to be a huge game.
Buffalo has been the clear leader of this division over the last few years, but the other teams in the AFC East have started to load up. The Bills do enter the 2023 season as one of the big favorites to win the Super Bowl.
The New York Jets are trying to make a huge jump this season, and they have a new quarterback on the roster to get that done. New York has favorable odds to make the playoffs this year, but now they have to prove it on the field.
The Bills are two-point favorites over the Jets on Monday Night Football in Week 1 of the season.
Bills Want to Run
The Buffalo Bills want to run the football, and that doesn’t mean just handing the ball off to their star running backs. Quarterback Josh Allen is one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the league, and he will be able to pick up some big yards on the ground in this game as well.
Not only can Allen run the ball effectively for the Bills, but he also has the talent to throw the ball deep and win the game with his arm. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs is going to be a huge key in this game as well, and he always seems to be open.
Most people tend to overlook the defense of the Bills as the offense steals the headlines. This unit will also have a big game in this one, as they will find a way to make life difficult on Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers Ready to Roll For Jets
The New York Jets made a huge splash in the offseason by acquiring veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers is heading to the Hall of Fame at the end of his career, but he would like to add another title to his resume.
New York was not a good offensive team a season ago, and that is going to make things difficult for Rodgers in this one. The Jets will be looking to run the football early in this game as a way to create some balance.
This team was terrific on defense a year ago, and that unit is going to have to try to find a way to keep them in the game in this one.
Bills Get Job Done
The addition of Aaron Rodgers is going to be a good thing for the New York Jets, but it’s going to take more than that to win games. Rodgers will have a good game in this one, but he is also going to have some costly mistakes.
Buffalo is the favorite to win the division for a reason, and they are absolutely loaded with talent. The Bills are going to face a tough environment on Monday night, but they are going to come up with enough big plays to get some separation in this one.
Bet the Buffalo Bills -2.0 as they go on the road to New York and pick up an impressive win over the Jets.
