The New York Jets regular season schedule was announced on Thursday night as part of the NFL’s league-wide schedule release.

In 2023, the Jets’ 17-game schedule will include nine home games and eight away, with the schedule rotation meaning they play all four teams from both the AFC West and NFC East.

Their schedule also includes a whopping six primetime games, including the first ever Black Friday game against division rivals the Miami Dolphins.

Better get your sleep in now!

They’ll start the season at MetLife for what looks set to be an electric Monday Night Football game against the Buffalo Bills.

After a trip to Dallas, they host the Patriots in the only 6pm UK kick-off until December before another primetime game at MetLife – Sunday Night Football against reigning Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs.

The schedule doesn’t get much easier ahead of the bye, with a trip to Denver followed by the visit of the Philadelphia Eagles – last year’s NFC champs.

After the bye week, it’s crosstown rivalry week, as the Jets play ‘away’ at MetLife for the first time since 2015, vs the Giants. The Chargers and Raiders games follow, both at primetime: the first on Monday Night and the second Sunday night before the Jets play the reverse fixture against Buffalo.

They’ll contest the first ever Black Friday NFL game against the Dolphins on November 24th at the UK-friendly time of 8pm. They then play four games back in the 6pm timeslot, including three at home, the last of which is a Christmas Eve contest with the Washington Commanders.

A Thursday Night Football matchup in Cleveland will help ring in the New Year, before the Jets complete their schedule with a trip to Foxborough in January – exact date and time TBC.

So there you have it! 17 games across 18 weeks, with the Jets hoping that this is the year their long playoff absence comes to an end.

From a UK perspective, it’s going to be a lot of late nights! But with mouth-watering matchups start to finish, the adrenaline will be pumping (along with the coffee) to help get us through.

Chime in on social media with your thoughts, and keep your eyes peeled for more info as the season ticks closer.
