Monday Night Football gets off to a flying start in Week 1 of the 2023 NFL season with an AFC East clash between the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills.

Josh Allen and the Bills will kick off their season by facing the revamped Jets, led by Aaron Rodgers in his Green Bay debut. New York have assembled a talented roster centered around their new signal caller, leaving no question that the time to win is now.

As for the Bills, they’ve come extremely close to making it to the Super Bowl on multiple occasions in recent years. This season they will be hoping for a breakthrough, as many believe the window of opportunity is slowly closing.

The AFC is stacked with talent this year, and one of the big teams could miss out on those all-important home field advantage spots in the postseason. A 1-0 start, coupled with the satisfaction of handing a rival their first loss of the season, would be a dream start for either of these franchises. With that in mind, let’s take a look at who might claim the early bragging rights after Monday Night Football.

Bills vs Jets Preview

The New York Jets went all in this off-season by acquiring Aaron Rodgers and creating a Super Bowl window that should last for the next two to three years at least. Make no mistake about it, they’re building some real momentum, and the roster is perfectly situated to excel for several years.

The Jets won both the Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards with Garrett Wilson and Sauce Gardner, meaning two of their most impactful players are only one year into their contracts. They can then spend more freely on big deals for the likes of Rodgers and Quinnen Williams, constructing a roster capable of competing in an already loaded conference.

Last season the Jets won a total of seven games, but many forget that at one point they were 5-2, which included a win over the Buffalo Bills. This was all before injuries started to derail their season. Robert Saleh has built a defense that can withstand the league's best offenses, and last year, Last year, had there been a future Hall of Fame quarterback on the roster, the Jets would likely have secured a playoff spot.

Saleh now has his Hall of Fame QB in place, supported by improvements on both sides of the ball. This is all with the aim of winning a Super Bowl championship with the organization.

Buffalo will be well aware of the threat the Jets pose in the AFC East, having fought them twice last season in tightly contested games, splitting the series 1-1. In both of those games, neither team scored more than 20 points. The Jets won the first of the meetings 20-17, and lost the second 20-12.

Josh Allen knows that points are not going to come easy against this Jets roster, and there are certainly some questions about the Bills offense going into the year. It would be fair to say that both teams' running back situations are up in the air right now, with the Jets rehabbing both Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook, and the Bills turning to Dalvin’s brother James for a spark in 2023.

If James Cook can in fact provide that upside, the Bills will finally be able to lean on their run game more without having to depend on the scramble ability of Josh Allen.

As for the receivers, Stefon Diggs absolutely has to be built into the game plan better this year. At times last season, particularly late in the year, he became a spectator, and that led to his frustrations on the sidelines and following their exit in the playoffs. Diggs wants to win, and if you give him the ball, he’s going to help you do that.

It’s worth noting that Buffalo are also missing a key piece on defense this season following the exit of Tremaine Edmunds, who signed a mega free agency deal with the Chicago Bears. Matt Milano will now take on a major role in commanding the middle of the field, but it could take some time to adjust to life without his partner.

Bills vs Jets Predictions & NFL Picks Week 1

While I have the utmost respect for what the Buffalo Bills have been able to do in recent seasons, it's been an underwhelming offseason for them when compared to that of the Jets or the Dolphins.

The addition of Leonard Floyd is the big one, and that will certainly help to spark the pass rush for the Bills. Floyd was with Von Miller in L.A. when they won Super Bowl LVI, and will now combine once again in the AFC East. Miller missed the latter portion of last season, and his return plus Floyd’s signature is certainly a boost.

However, outside of that the roster seems to be missing a couple of key elements. For starters, the run game is unproven. If James Cook is in fact not the answer, then they will once again underperform on the ground in 2023, which has proven to be their undoing in the playoffs on multiple occasions.

The wide receivers are led by Stefon Diggs, but outside of him, again not exactly Super Bowl caliber. Gabe Davis has been streaky with some great moments and some quiet spells, and the rest of the group are depth pieces who can add a couple of catches here and there.

The Jets on the other hand have added value across the board this offseason, and now find themselves on a level playing field after competing with the Bills twice last year despite the gulf in talent between the two teams. So how does that now look with all the roster improvements they’ve made?

The Jets are the hosts for the season opener, and while Buffalo will bring a traveling crowd, as they always do, I’m backing the Jets to pull this one off to start the new era.

While there’s a 2.5 point spread in their favor on offer, I feel confident about the moneyline on Monday night.

The Pick: New York Jets to win (+120)

I know it’s not the glamorous pick here, but Robert Saleh is not interested in your back-and-forth touchdown fests. The Jets were 5-12 on point totals last season, cashing only five overs throughout the season, and three of those involved the Jets scoring 30+ points themselves.

They finished top five in points allowed last year, giving up just 18.6 points per game, and the Bills were a tough test too, finishing second in the same category with 17.9 points allowed.

I get it, it’s Aaron Rodgers vs Josh Allen. Their names are in lights and it's the first Monday Night game of the season, but it will be a chess match, and points are not going to come as easy as we might think. I’ll take the under, comfortably.

The Pick: Under 46.5 Points (-110)

Best NFL Player Prop Bets: Bills vs Jets

Josh Allen

With the Jets secondary playing tight coverage and Sauce most likely spending the day following Stefon Diggs around, I like Josh Allen to pull it down and take off on multiple occasions, especially in the red zone.

The Bills love to scheme plays that allow Allen to use his legs, and that might be the case more often than not early in the season while they develop trust with their new look run game.

Allen has 38 rushing touchdowns in his pro career and had seven last season. Three of those came in the two games against the Jets.

The Pick: Josh Allen anytime touchdown scorer (+155)

Garrett Wilson

Fans are dying to see this connection between Rodgers and Wilson, and from what we’ve seen in camp and on Hard Knocks, plus the very limited action in the preseason, it’s every bit as good as advertised.

Garrett Wilson had a superb year last season despite playing with the Jets carousel of quarterbacks. He now has a Hall of Fame quarterback in his corner, who has taken a shine to the young star and could easily make him his favorite target in 2023.

We know from experience that if Rodgers trusts you, you’ll see plenty of the ball.

The Pick: Garrett Wilson anytime touchdown scorer (+120)
