Cowboys 2023 schedule: 3 exciting matchups Dallas could open up with in Week 1
1. New York Jets
With Aaron Rodgers officially a New York Jet, they will be getting a lot more primetime games this upcoming season. It's the draw of Aaron Rodgers.
The Cowboys have opened up against future Hall of Famer Tom Brady in back-to-back seasons and another veteran in Matthew Stafford in 2020. It would make sense for them to open up against another great quarterback.
Last season, newly acquired Russell Wilson and the Broncos got a primetime game in Week 1. Fans wanted to see Wilson on a new team. This year, that hype is around Rodgers.
The former Packers quarterback has long tortured the Cowboys in his career, which could be a great storyline heading into the game. He has won eight of his last nine games against Dallas dating back to 2009 and some moments include completing a 36-yard sideline completion to Jared Cook for a game-winning drive or throwing a game-winning touchdown in the final seconds in 2017 to Davante Adams.
Rodgers has had his number against the Cowboys, but could that change on a new team?
Rodgers versus the Cowboys would be a big draw for Week 1. It's also likely that both teams will be playing a primetime game during the first week and since they play each other, it makes the most sense for a Sunday or Monday night game.
