1. New York Jets

The New York Jets aren't going to be regarded as a bottom-of-the-barrel team anymore. They haven't had a winning season since 2015 and haven't made the playoffs since 2011.

But the Jets had a bounce-back year last season as they won seven games and have a competitive young core. Their play at the quarterback position held them back from reaching their full potential and their offense was stagnant for most of the 17-game schedule.

But not anymore. The Jets traded for Aaron Rodgers this offseason and are looking to turn this franchise around. And Rodgers being on the roster is the reason that this game is a must-win revenge game for Dallas.

Rodgers has an 8-3 record against the Cowboys and has only lost to them once since 2009. He has dominated Dallas during his time as a signal caller and has beat them twice in the playoffs.

He is a player that is notorious within Cowboys Nation and Dallas needs to change the narrative of Rodgers owning the Cowboys.

This game is on Sept. 17 and is the home opener for the Cowboys. All eyes will be on Dallas to see if they can shake the Rodgers-curse or if this is a new team that is ready to take down the player that has beat them consistently over the years.
