Rodgers' Misfortune Spells Trouble for Jets and NFL Ratings.
Jets acquired Aaron Rodgers with high hopes of Super Bowl contention.
Rodgers suffered a season-ending Achilles injury just four plays into his Jets career.
This injury dims the Jets' Super Bowl prospects and poses a potential ratings challenge for the NFL.
The injury occurred during a highly-watched Monday Night Football game.
NFL executives express confidence in adapting the schedule but acknowledge the sadness of player injuries.
The NFL hints at the Jets' strong defense and receiving corps to maintain viewer interest.
The immovable prime-time games include the Chiefs-Jets matchup, Week 9 against the Chargers, and a Black Friday game against Miami.
The potential movement of the Week 10 game against Las Vegas depends on NFL decisions between Week 5-9.
The Week 17 game against Cleveland appears to be the most flexible game for rescheduling.
