This week, all the 32 NFL teams will be in action. However, the scheduling will be a bit different. The NFL will play its first-ever Black Friday game this week. It will be an all-AFC East clash between the New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins. This game will follow three Thanksgiving Thursday games that will played this week.
The Jets are having a tough season so far. After losing their star quarterback Aaron Rodgers to an Achilles injury in week 1, they have struggled to consistently win games and as a result of that, find themselves with a 4-6 record. Their backup QB Zach Wilson, who was the second overall pick in the 2021 Draft, has had a horrible season and has been benched going forward. The Jets have decided to make Tim Boyle their starter for the rest of the season.
The Dolphins on the other hand are flying. They are top of their division with a 7-3 record and are playing some amazing offensive football. Their star WR Tyreek Hill is arguably the best player at his position this season and is on pace to break records. Tua Tagovailoa, the Dolphins’ QB, is also having a terrific year. Their offense have already scored 70 points against the Denver Broncos in one game this season.
This will be the first matchup between these two teams this season. The Dolphins have won 6 of the last 8 games against the Jets. Their latest game came in January this year. The Dolphins won that game 11-6. The Miami-based narrowly leads the all-time series between the two, 58-56-1. Jets will be looking to bounce back from a huge defeat against the Buffalo Bills in their last game, whereas the Dolphins will be hoping to win their second game in a row.
