Breece Hall explodes as NY Jets blow out Dolphins, 40-17

The Jets have engaged in their first winning streak since December 2020

Behind 197 total yards from Breece Hall, the New York Jets earned an elusive winning streak and their first divisional victory in their last 13 tries, topping the Miami Dolphins 40-17 on Sunday afternoon in East Rutherford.

The Jets’ first score might’ve been more appropriate at Sunday night’s New York Mets game, as Sauce Gardner provided the first points of his NFL career when his hit on Teddy Bridgewater not only removed the backup quarterback from the game but also created a safety induced by intentional grounding.

Further baseball antics lingered when the Jets had a 5-0 lead after the first quarter thanks to a Greg Zuerlein field goal but the Jets broke the game open when Michael Carter got the only yard that Breece Hall couldn’t, punching it in from one yard out after the rookie went 79 yards on a reception from Zach Wilson.

Miami struck back with scores despite Gardner’s first career interception, but the Jets retained a halftime lead thanks to Zach Wilson turning that turnover into a five-yard scoring tally.

Raheem Mostert and Durham Smythe scored for the Dolphins, both being short rushing scores.

Scoring in the third quarter was limited to a 46-yard Jason Sanders field goal, but it was all Jets from there on out, especially after Miami missed another in the final frame. More big gains from Hall set up another short Carter score, but he finally got to enter the end zone for himself after Quinnen Williams recovered a Thompson fumble.

One more score awaited the Jets, as Braxton Berrios scored on a 15-yard rush to close things out. He was hit in the head and had some difficulty getting up, but when he was able to rise, he pumped up the MetLife Stadium crowd, who reveled in the Jets’ first winning streak since December 2020.

The Jets will return to action on the road next Sunday when they battle the Green Bay Packers (1 p.m. ET, Fox).

As a Jet fan, it’s hard to accept we have a superstar running back that we drafted. We have been so bereft of offensive talent for so long. Not only that, our locker room really likes each other. PFF ranks Zach 8th out of 38 QB’s! I was hoping for Zach to be 15th! Who are these wonderful Jets?

I thought the best line in the article was ‘Sauce’s safety gave the Mets a 2-pt lead over the Marlins,’

Wondered why we drafted Breece Hall after Carter had such a good year last season.
I’m not wondering anymore!
