International Games

The NFL continues to expand its reach beyond American borders, with five international games set to take place in 2023. Two of these games will be played in Frankfurt, marking the second German city to host an NFL game.

The Week 9 matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins is sure to be a must-watch game, as reigning Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes leads the Chiefs into Germany for the league’s first-ever game in Frankfurt. The Dolphins, who had a hot start to the 2022 season, will be looking to prove they’re a force to be reckoned with.

In Week 10, the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots will face off in Frankfurt in a renewal of an old AFC rivalry.

Jets Home Opener

The New York Jets’ home opener against the Buffalo Bills will be a prime-time affair, with Aaron Rodgers making his Jets debut on Monday Night Football. The Jets traded for Rodgers ahead of the draft, signaling their intent to go all-in on the 2023 season with a young, talented roster. Josh Allen and the Bills, who have won the division three times running, will be looking to get off to a hot start and plant their flag right away in the AFC East.

Bengals vs. Chiefs

In a prime Week 17 slot, Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals will once again travel to Arrowhead to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in an AFC Championship Game rematch. These two teams have developed a bit of a rivalry over the past few seasons, with the Bengals defeating the Chiefs in the 2021 AFC title game and Mahomes leading the Chiefs to victory in the 2022 AFC title game. By Week 17, both teams will likely still be jockeying for playoff positioning, making this a must-watch game.
