The two NFL teams will look very different in 2023.
They are the Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets.
Most of the league is waiting for these two teams to agree to a deal that would make Aaron Rodgers the next Jets quarterback.
If that happens, Jordan Love will take over in Green Bay, and both storied franchises will have someone new under center.
When looking at how they might fare in 2023, it looks like Rodgers will have a much tougher road to success.
Colin Cowherd even thinks the Packers will make the playoffs next year and the Jets won’t.

Cowherd points out that the AFC is much more loaded with good teams and quarterbacks than the NFC.
In the AFC East itself, Rodgers will face the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots.
It’s not crazy to think the Jets could finish third or fourth in the division.
Plus, the rest of the AFC is loaded with Super Bowl contending teams.
Rodgers will need to play at an MVP level again to get the Jets as far as they hope to go.
In Green Bay, despite having a much easier path to the playoffs, Love is unproven.
We’ve seen the 2020 first-round pick start just one game in his career.
Also, the NFC North has gotten tougher with improvements to the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.
Cowherd thinks the Packers can win at least 10 games with Love, but that seems a little optimistic.
Both of these teams will be some of the most exciting to watch in 2023 as they hope to return to the playoffs.
