Unlocking Victory: Three Keys to the Jets Upsetting Josh Allen and the BillsNovember 19, 2023
BE MORE CREATIVE ON EARLY DOWNS
The Jets have been predictable by running the ball on early downs, causing running back Breece Hall to struggle in recent games. The team needs to use their passing game to help set up the run and prevent opponents from loading up close to the line of scrimmage to stop Hall.
IMPROVE RUSHING DEFENSE
While the Jets defense has been strong overall, their rushing defense remains a problem, allowing opponents to gain an average of 138.4 yards per game. With the Bills emphasizing running the football more, the Jets need to address this issue.
INCREASE 3RD-DOWN CONVERSIONS
The Jets have a historically low 25% success rate on third-down conversions this season. With the Bills defense excelling in sacks, the Jets need to improve their third-down success to avoid a tough day for their offensive line and quarterback Zach Wilson.
