After a drama-filled summer, Aaron Rodgers finally made his highly-anticipated debut for the New York Jets on Saturday night. It was a mere cameo from the four-time NFL MVP, but it was enough for Jets fans everywhere to believe that this could finally be their year.
Aaron Rodgers Has Solid Jets Debut
As expected, it was a brief cameo from the four-time All-Pro quarterback in his first game for his new team. Rodgers went 5-of-8 for 47 yards, while also dropping an eye-opening touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson:

For what it’s worth, Rodgers also got sacked once in the game while also throwing one interception. Nevertheless, it was a solid debut from the 39-year-old who has now started a new chapter in his decorated career.
NFL Twitter Reacts to Aaron Rodgers’ Debut
Rodgers got a standing ovation from the home crowd at the Metlife Stadium, and Jets fans clearly felt the same way on the mean streets of Twitter:

The Jets managed to secure a win on Rodgers’ debut, taking down their cross-town rivals, 32-24.
For Aaron Rodgers, though, what will matter the most is how he performs in his first regular-season game for New York. This will be on September 11th against Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. That’s going to be a good one, obviously.
