The New York Jets‘ 2023 season isn’t necessarily going as planned.
After Aaron Rodgers’ injury and injuries to other key members of their roster, the Jets find themselves with a 2-3 record.
They are slated to face off against the Philadelphia Eagles for a Week 6 matchup, where the Jets have an opportunity to make history.
According to a recent tweet from B/R Gridiron, the Jets have never beaten the Eagles.

These two historic franchises have played each other 12 times, a series the Eagles have dominated thus far.
Will this be the week that the Jets can redeem themselves?
A win over the Eagles would be a historic accomplishment and an opportunity for the Jets to get back to .500.
Rodgers has recently declared that he believes he will be back for the playoffs, assuming the Jets can make it.
A lot is riding on this game for the Jets.
Being .500 through six weeks is a doable mark to make the playoffs.
Falling to 2-4 could put a nail in the Jets’ coffin, a difficult hole for even the best teams to get out of.
At 5-0, the Eagles have shown they are a tough out again this year.
The majority of sportsbooks have the Eagles as 6.5-point favorites, indicating they believe the Eagles will win.
Whether the Jets can pull off this unlikely upset remains to be seen.
Analysts continue to downplay the Jets’ abilities, despite pulling off a convincing Week 5 win against the Denver Broncos, and narrowly losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4.NEXT: Analyst Makes Wild Claim About Aaron Rodgers’ Potential Return
