Taylor Swift won’t be the only star at MetLife Stadium for the Jet-Chiefs game on “Sunday Night Football.”
Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers spoke to his teammates at the team hotel Saturday in preparation for their prime-time battle with the defending Super Bowl champions on Sunday, and he will be at the game, a source told The Post’s Brian Costello.
Rodgers’ visit likely provided a boost for Zach Wilson, Garrett Wilson and the rest of the team.
Gang Green, an 8.5-point underdog, will be looking to pull off the upset when they square off against Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce — aka Swift’s boyfriend — and the rest of the Kansas City squad.
Wilson, the Jets’ star receiver, said Friday he was hoping the 39-year-old quarterback would be able to make a visit.
“That would be awesome, as good of a football mind as he is, to have him around the team,” Wilson said. “For someone like me, to be able to bounce my thoughts off of, see what he’s thinking.
“To have him around, the aura, the energy he comes with, it’s priceless. As soon as we can get him back, his presence will be felt. I hope it is this weekend.”
Rodgers ruptured his left Achilles tendon after just four plays in the opener Sept. 11, prematurely ending his season.
He underwent surgery that week and was spotted on crutches Thursday, instead of a walking boot. Rodgers has said he would like to return once he was able to walk.
The Jets only can hope Rodgers’ appearance will help the struggling Zach Wilson, who has drawn the ire a frustrated fan base and their legendary quarterback Joe Namath.
In a rant on ESPN New York’s “The Michael Kay Show” on Monday, the 80-year-old Namath used words such as “awful” and “disgusting” to describe Wilson’s play.
Wilson didn’t fire back at Namath, but is looking to make him a believer.
“He’s passionate and he’s obviously one of the greats. As an offense, we have to do everything we can to try and prove him wrong,” the struggling third-year quarterback said after practice Thursday in Florham Park. “We’ll keep doing what we can to improve. I think the guys are very optimistic, and we all believe in each other. So I’m excited for this week.”
