Ahead of Thursday night’s announcement of the full slate of NFL games in 2023, the league has revealed the matchup for its first-ever Black Friday game.
The inaugural game will feature a pair of AFC East division rivals, with the Dolphins scheduled to travel to MetLife Stadium to play the Jets.
Kickoff for the historic game is set for 3 p.m. ET Nov. 24.

In October, the NFL announced that Amazon would have the exclusive streaming rights for the Black Friday game.
“We’re excited to be the home of the first-ever NFL Black Friday game, and what better way to kick off this new tradition than with a rivalry matchup between the Dolphins and the Jets,” Amazon Vice President of Global Sports Video Marie Donoghue said in a statement.
Amazon also confirmed that fans will have free access to the game on Prime Video.
“On one of the biggest shopping days of the year, we’re thrilled to offer another way to delight Amazon customers and give all fans free access to this AFC East showdown,” Donoghue noted.

The Jets were widely expected to be featured in multiple primetime games this upcoming season after the team landed four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers.
The Jets-Dolphins rivalry dates back to 1966. Miami holds the advantage over New York with a 57-56-1 regular-season series record between the franchises.

Last season, the Jets were victorious during their home game against the Dolphins but dropped their road game against Miami.
The league also revealed NFC East division rivals — the Giants and the Eagles — would go head to head Christmas Day. The reigning Super Bowl champion Chiefs will face off against Joe Burrow and the Bengals Dec. 31.
The NFL is expected to release the full schedule at 8 p.m. ET Thursday.
