Unlocking Success: Essential Components for a Jets Win Against the Las Vegas RaidersNovember 12, 2023
Despite a strong defense, the Jets struggle to stop the run, ranking 30th in the NFL with an average of 137.3 yards per game allowed on the ground. With rookie quarterback Aidan O’Connell leading the Raiders, expect Josh Jacobs to be a key part of their strategy.
INTERIM COACH ANTONIO PIERCE, now in charge in Vegas, is likely to focus on the running game with Jacobs leading the charge against the Jets on Sunday.
GET THE BALL OUT FASTER
Despite the offensive line’s struggles, Jets QB Zach Wilson must improve his decision-making and release the ball more quickly. The Jets are third in the NFL in sacks allowed with 32, and Wilson’s tendency to hold the ball too long has only exacerbated the issue.
MORE EXPLOSIVE PLAYS
The Jets’ predictable play-calling has made it easy for opposing defenses to plan ahead. To counter this, the Jets need to air it out more on first downs, utilizing dynamic playmakers like Breece Hall and Garrett Wilson in the passing game to keep the offense dynamic.
