The Green Bay Packers are one of the most fascinating teams to watch this season. As they begin life without Aaron Rodgers, anything could happen.

They could remain in playoff contention and show signs of a bright future with Jordan Love proving he's ready. But it's also possible everything goes wrong, the Packers blow it all up in the offseason and completely start over.

Having already looked at three dream scenarios for the Packers this season, it's time for the things we hope won't happen in 2023. Here are three nightmare scenarios for Green Bay.

3. Aaron Rodgers plays fewer than 65 percent of Jets snaps

The New York Jets are going all-in with Aaron Rodgers. It's Super Bowl-or-bust. The Packers will be watching closely, and not just to see how their former MVP quarterback performs on a new team.

Green Bay will receive a draft pick from New York next offseason. For now, it's a second-round choice, but it will become a first if Rodgers plays at least 65 percent of the Jets' snaps. It's a relatively low bar to clear, as Rodgers would only need to start and finish around 11 games.

But if Rodgers suffers an injury and falls short of that number, both teams lose out. The Jets could probably kiss goodbye to their Super Bowl dreams if Rodgers missed six or more games, while the Packers would lose a first-round pick.
