Swift’s star power will put even more eyes on New York’s nationally televised matchup with Kansas City, which is going to be the Jets’ first Sunday Night Football game since 2011. The matchup was set to be a duel between Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers, but it is now Zach Wilson in his place due to the latter’s injury.
With millions of eyes on the Jets, there is a massive opportunity for them to shift the narrative of their season. Even with a close loss, the organization can shake off the idea that their season is over and look towards returning to the win column against the dreadful Denver Broncos.
But if the Jets get blown out again and show the same issues they did against the New England Patriots, there will be the potential for a lot of bad blood surrounding the organization moving forward.
