2. The NY Jets must come up with a better pass-block gameplan

The Cowboys have one of the best pass rushes in the NFL. The Jets knew this entering the week, and offensive line coach Keith Carter even spent extra hours devising a game plan to deal with the likes of Micah Parsons and company.

That's what makes Sunday's game plan even more embarrassing. The Jets had no answer for Parsons and actively put their players in positions to fail.

Duane Brown was left on an island against Parsons, with no help from other linemen or blockers, a total of 14 times in Sunday's game. 14 times! Any offensive tackle in football is going to struggle on an island against Parsons, let alone a 38-year-old coming off major shoulder surgery.

The Jets' offensive game plan was a disaster on Sunday, and that was no more evident than with the team's offensive line approach. The offensive line deserves its share of criticism, but the Jets' coaching staff (read: Hackett and Carter) did the unit absolutely no favors.

1. The NY Jets must give Breece Hall more touches

This offense doesn't work without Breece Hall. The Jets saw that last season once Hall went down with a season-ending torn ACL. Hall should be the focal point of the offense, especially with Aaron Rodgers sidelined.

The Jets didn't get that memo, however. Hall may be on a limited snap count, but that doesn't excuse the fact that he received a total of four touches throughout Sunday's game. He actually played fewer snaps in Week 2 than he did the week prior.

Even if the Jets insist on limiting Hall's snaps, they need to do a better job of getting him involved in the offense when he's on the field. Give him the important touches. Put him in the game on 3rd-and-2 — not 1st-and-10.

Hall's four touches on Sunday all came on either 1st-and-10 or 2nd-and-10. The Jets are actively limiting the effectiveness of arguably their best offensive playmaker. That has to change if the team is going to find any success on offense moving forward.
