2.) Breece Hall vs. Bills’ run defense

When Breece Hall made his return to the field for the first time this season since tearing his ACL last season, he picked up where he left off. He averaged over 12 yards a carry, finishing the game with 127 rushing yards which hurt the Buffalo run defense and ultimately was a deciding factor in the win for the Jets. Since Week 2, the Bills have given up 108 rushing yards per game which gives Hall another favorable matchup against the Bills.

While the defense has been performing at a higher level than the offense, the defense seems to break at critical times which is not good when you go up against someone like Hall. Zach Wilson has not been great at all this season and if the run game for the Jets cannot get going, this will take some pressure off of the Bills. Hall is the main priority in the backfield, making him a priority to stop right at the start.
