It was an impressive offensive showing in Week 5 as the NY Jets beat the Denver Broncos by a final score of 31-21 to move to 2-3 on the season.
The offense topped 400 yards for the first time in any Zach Wilson start and truly moved the ball at will for the entire second half. Despite some serious red-zone struggles, they still found a way to produce points.
Of the 31 points scored, nine were produced by the defense via a safety and a fumble return touchdown, but the offense still did put up 22 points, their highest of the season so far.
Below are grades for some of the key Jets offensive performances, starting with the career day for Breece Hall.
Breece Hall, RB, NY Jets
I predicted that Breece Hall was going to have a massive breakout game against Denver in my fantasy football weekly article last week. Everything was set up perfectly for Hall as he was removed from his snap count restriction, Dalvin Cook’s role had been further reduced, and the Denver defense ranked 32nd against the run through four weeks.
And boy did Hall break out.
He tallied his highest workload of the year, running 22 times for a career-high 177 yards, and also added three catches for 17 yards. All in all, Hall finished with 25 touches for 194 yards from scrimmage.
The highlight of the day for the offense came on their first play from scrimmage of the second half. After forcing a quick three and out, the Jets offense handed the ball to Hall, who broke through the right side of the line untouched for a 72-yard score. It changed the momentum of the game.
The only downside to Hall’s performance was the overall lack of an offensive push in the red zone. The Jets should have put up 40 points in this one but settled for two short-field goals late in the game that easily could have been touchdown scores.
Nonetheless, it was a career day for Hall, who showed just how good he is when fully healthy and getting the ball consistently.
