As this highly anticipated Jets’ home opener approaches, pundits have voiced their opinions. They suggest that Aaron Rodgers will once again lead his team to victory, just as he did for 18 consecutive seasons with the Packers, whether at home or away, a feat Brady never achieved.

While the Bills boast a clean slate with no athletes on the PUP list, the Jets have raised concerns by listing three players as ‘questionable’, casting a shadow over the home opener.

Left Tackle Duane Brown sustained a torn rotator cuff during the summer and is expected to miss the bout. Right Tackle Joe Mekhi Brown injured his knee during practice and has been diagnosed with a condition that will keep him sidelined for several weeks. Lastly, running back Breece Hall, who was on the path to a comeback after his ACL injury in 2021, had shown promising progress during practice but now finds himself on the list as well.
