NFL News Today – Thursday, May 11, 2023

NFL Announces 2023 International Series. Although there are a good number of months left, the days advance and the next season looks closer. An example of the above is that this Thursday the 2023 NFL Calendar will be announced, where the dates and times of each of the games of the next campaign will be announced, although there is no reason to wait until tonight for the first taste of what is coming. This Wednesday the league made official the games belonging to the International Series 2023.

Without further ado, the meetings are as follows:

Week 4: Atlanta Falcons vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, Sunday, October 1 (Wembley Stadium, London, England)
Week 5: Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Buffalo Bills, Sunday, October 8 (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, England)
Week 6: Baltimore Ravens vs. Tennessee Titans, Sunday, October 15 (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, England)
Week 9: Miami Dolphins vs. Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, November 5 (Deutsche Bank Park, Frankfurt, Germany)
Week 10: Indianapolis Colts vs. New England Patriots, Monday, November 13 (Deutsche Bank Park, Frankfurt, Germany)

As previously reported, the league will not be coming to Mexico City next season as the Azteca Stadium is undergoing remodeling for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. In fact, the really curious thing is that the Jaguars will be the first team in history to play two games in London in the same season. In addition, Jacksonville will also play in the same city in 2024 in the last match corresponding to a 3-year agreement that, for now, is about to expire with Wembley Stadium.

“In what promises to be a great football spectacle for our fans around the world, we are thrilled to announce the five games that will be played internationally in 2023, a record number of regular season games in Europe in one season,” Peter O’Reilly, NFL Executive Vice President, Team Business, said Wednesday. Major and International Events.

“We are excited to bring three games to London once again, a city with great love for the sport and a passionate fan base across the UK. We are also pleased to confirm that the two games in Germany will be played in Frankfurt, a city steeped in the NFL’s heritage. We look forward to hosting both games at Eintracht Frankfurt’s Stadium, building on the incredible atmosphere experienced at last season’s game in Munich,” concluded O’Reilly.

Aaron Jones: “When Jordan Love speaks, everyone listens”
As is known, QB Aaron Rodgers was traded from the Packers to the Jets a couple of weeks ago, so Green Bay will begin the era of QB Jordan Love, the team’s first-round pick in the 2020 Draft. And on Wednesday, Love, 24, mentioned in a press conference what he will face this 2023, noting that he “could not really control what would happen in the future,” but that he approached the offseason as if he were about to be the new owner of the franchise.

“It’s exciting, there’s a lot of energy around me. I can step up and be a little more expressive knowing that I’m the man, not the backup,” said Love, who also added that it was not easy to be behind Rodgers for three seasons after being a first-round pick, although he admitted that it was “very valuable” to learn from the veteran four-time NFL MVP. and that he feels he has improved “drastically” since arriving in Green Bay.

Love is not just words on the air and RB Aaron Jones, a 28-year-old veteran, did not hesitate to praise him during a press conference also on Wednesday. Jones commented that “when [Love] speaks, everyone listens,” and explained the reasons why his new quarterback has already earned the “full trust” of his teammates: “He believes in himself, first of all,” emphasized Jones, who last year carried the ovoid 213 times for 1,121 yards, although with only 2 TD.

“That’s the first point: believe in yourself or no one else will. He believes in himself, he cares about those around him and we’ve seen him come and just work and work. As an athlete, you want to come in and play right away, that wasn’t his case, he didn’t have that opportunity. He did it the right way, he bided his time and you never heard a peep or complaint from him,” Jones concluded of a Love who, although he has played in 10 games, has only started in one, accumulating 60.2% of completions for 606 yards, 3 TD and 3 INT.

Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask to receive “equal replays”
After the retirement of QB Tom Brady last February, Tampa Bay begins a new era, but who will have the keys to the offense is still unknown. The franchise currently has two options: Kyle Trask, the team’s second-round pick in 2021, or Baker Mayfield, the Browns’ first overall pick in 2018, but who landed with the Buccaneers in mid-March. According to quarterbacks coach Thad Lewis, both will receive equal opportunities to be starters in 2023.

“I’m sure they’ll get equal reps, then we’ll see what they do on a daily basis. Competition makes everyone great,” Lewis concluded of both players. The 28-year-old Mayfield has the advantage in experience with 69 career starts, 16,288 yards through the air, and 102 TDs in five seasons in the league, even though he made the playoffs. Trask, 25, has completed just 3 of 9 passes for 23 yards since arriving in Tampa Bay.

Finally, OC Dave Canales added that there is no “rush” in choosing: “It’s win-win when you create competition,” Canales said, via The Athletic. “If you name the incumbent, the alternate starts thinking like that. But if you say competition, we are going to allow them to enter the preseason, to show us that they can manage, and take care of the ovoid, that will be the determining factor. As I told [GM Jason Licht] from the beginning, I will coach whoever you give me, and whoever we decide [to start]. I’ll have both of them ready.”
