While the complete 2023 NFL regular-season schedule will be announced Thursday night, the league is revealing a handful of select matchups on Wednesday.
Earlier Wednesday morning, the NFL announced the five international games for the 2023 campaign -- including two games in Frankfurt, Germany.
Following that, the league unveiled standout matchups,
starting with Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins facing off with Aaron Rodgers and the host New York Jets in the first-ever Black Friday game.

The NFL will ring in the new year with an AFC Championship Game rematch. In a prime Week 17 slot,
Joe Burrow and the Bengals will once again travel to Arrowhead to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, the reigning Super Bowl champions.
Cincinnati's 2022 season ended in despair in Kansas City when Harrison Butker's game-winning field goal in the AFC title game sent the Chiefs to Super Bowl LVII.
That boot came one year after the Bengals pulled off an improbable comeback at Arrowhead in the 2021 AFC title game,
coming back from an 18-point first-half deficit to defeat K.C. in overtime and reach their first Super Bowl in three decades.
In head-to-head clashes between Burrow and Mahomes -- arguably the top two quarterbacks in football --
the Bengals signal-caller is 3-1 against his Chiefs counterpart, with the only loss coming in their most recent matchup.
Playoff positioning will surely be on the line in this one, as by Week 17,
these reigning division champions will likely still be jockeying for seeding -- and possibly division titles and playoff spots.
