Now that the season schedule is here, many NFL fans wait in anticipation for the season to begin.
The Dallas Cowboys have the fourth toughest strength of schedule. This should be no surprise as the Cowboys will face division rival the Philadelphia Eagles twice.
The Cowboys will also face the AFC East. Three of those teams have the potential to be a Super Bowl matchup.
The AFC East is expected to be like the 2022 NFC East, where the majority of the teams in the division make the playoffs.
The Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, and the New York Jets are all poised to have a good season.
Many Cowboys fans have those games marked down as this could potentially be a Super Bowl Matchup. Many should put an emphasis on the Jets' game.
The reason is the rivalry Jets Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has against the Dallas Cowboys.
Now that Tom Brady is retired (hopefully for good), Rodgers holds the belt for most wins against the Dallas Cowboys as an active quarterback.
New York Giants Quarterback Eli Manning has the most wins all-time at 13. Tom Brady finished with seven wins against the Cowboys. However, the Dallas Cowboys beat Brady this past season when it mattered most, in the playoffs.
Rodgers has played nine regular season games against the Cowboys in his career.
Out of those nine games, Rodgers had won six of them.
Aside from being the active quarterback with the most wins against the Cowboys, Rodgers holds another feat. He boasts a quarterback rating (QBR) of 103.6%.
This is the highest rating any quarterback has — retired or active — against the Cowboys.
Rodgers first met the Cowboys in 2007. In the first game against the Cowboys, Rodgers threw for one touchdown, with a QBR of 104.8.
Although impressive, this wasn't enough as the Cowboys took the victory in the first meeting against Rodgers.
After losing the second matchup against the Cowboys, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers would go on to win the next three games.
The Cowboys haven't beaten Aaron Rodgers since October 2016.
Rodgers has seen the Cowboys three more times since 2016 and has remained victorious.
After spending 18 years of his career at Green Bay Rodgers seeks a fresh start in New York where he will now be the starting quarterback for the Jets.
The Jets finished with a 7-10 record, which sat them at last place in their division. With a promising young team, Rodgers will look to make the Jets contenders for the first time in over 10 years.
The Cowboys will face the Jets at home in week two.
This matchup will be an early test for the Cowboys, as Rodgers has a plethora of weapons.
After being traded to the Jets, Rodgers had a list of players he wanted New York to sign. The Jets would answer Rodgers's wish list, signing all the wide receivers he asked for.
The Jets reunited Rodgers with Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb.
They also paired Rodgers with the speedy and elusive Mecole Hardman Jr.
Having these weapons at Rodgers's disposal will be a tough task for Defensive Coordinator Dan Quinn and the Cowboys' dme to townefense.
Come September 17th, the rivalry between Aaron Rodgers and the Dallas Cowboys is on display.
