The Jets, despite switching quarterbacks from Zach Wilson to Tim Boyle, still looked like an offense that can't get out of their own way.

In the NFL's first-ever Black Friday game, the Jets lost 34-13 to the Miami Dolphins. Ultimately, this will be the loss that removes the Jets from playoff contention, as they now have less than a one percent chance of reaching the postseason.

Once again, the offense failed to move the ball, failed to make consistent plays to string drives together, and turned the ball over. Below are offensive grades from the game.

Breece Hall, RB, NY Jets

Breece Hall had another disappointing outing. Of course, it is impossible for a running back to get going behind a practice team offensive line and a bad college quarterback, but Hall is the best player on this offense, and his stat lines have been putrid for almost two full months.

Hall finished with seven carries for 25 yards and added seven catches for 24 yards. As a total, that's 14 touches for just 49 yards for Hall, who is now on pace to finish with just 875 yards rushing this year despite playing in every game so far.

Hall had a really ugly play early where he dropped a very accurate pitch, scooped it up, ran backward, and lost five yards or so trying to avoid defenders. It was the second play just like that this year already.

Hall admitted post-game that he is pressing too much right now, and that mentality is leading to mistakes. It even had Coach Robert Saleh speak out against Hall, saying he needs to start doing the "gritty" work of an NFL running back instead of always looking for the splash plays.

Ultimately, yes, Hall is clearly pressing, and it has led to a drop-off in his game because of the mental mistakes. But can you blame him? He's played with horrendous quarterbacks and an even worse offensive line this year. The Jets need to get their running game fixed ASAP if they hope to have a big year from Hall next season.
