2. New York Jets

We now live in a world where the New York Jets can be considered the second toughest matchup for the Giants and be completely serious about it. It's a weird world for sure. However, the fact is the Jets showed serious promise in 2022.

Really, the only thing they lacked was a quarterback and they addressed that in a big way this offseason. A trade with the Packers brought in Rodgers and now the future Hall of Famer will have some serious weapons at his disposal: Garrett Wilson, Lazard and Breece Hall just to name a few. It's an offensive unit that's nightmare fuel for any defense.

Speaking of defense, the Jets are pretty good at that, too. Gardner looked like a 10-year veteran in his rookie season and will probably only get better. C.J. Mosely is a solid anchor for that linebacker group.

And, oh yeah, the Jets have one of the best defesnive lineman in the league in Quinnen Williams. All this talent plus replacing Zach Wilson with Rodgers? The showdown at MetLife will be a tough one for Brian Daboll's men, as Rodgers will look to put on a show.
