3 keys to a Jets upset win over the Cowboys


The plan for attack is simple and that’s run the football as much as possible with Dalvin Cook and Breece Hall. In Week 1 against the Bills, the Jets combined to rush for 172 yards while averaging 6.1 yards per carry.
As he is still working his way back from an ACL tear he suffered last October, Hall will be on a pitch count, much like last week against Buffalo. Hall didn’t look like a player returning from a significant injury, as he ran for 127 yards on 10 carries.
With Zach Wilson’s history of being erratic, the Jets’ ability to run the ball will determine if they can pull off the upset.
Although running the ball will be key, Wilson will undoubtedly have to play a major role as he replaces Aaron Rodgers. Gang Green’s much-maligned offensive line will need to perform better than it did against the Bills.
The Bills recorded three sacks and were consistently in the Jets’ backfield on passing downs.
The task could be even more challenging for the Jets this week trying to slow down a Cowboys front seven that registered seven sacks in their 40-0 blowout win against the Giants.
Let’s face it, if Gang Green is going to win in Dallas, its defense will have to lead the way. The Jets forced four Josh Allen turnovers in the OT win over the Bills and will look to do the same to Cowboys QB Dak Prescott.
In the win against the Giants, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy took the ball out of Prescott’s hands and relied on his running game and defense to get the victory. History has shown that Prescott is a big gambler who tends to throw interceptions in critical moments.
It will be up to the Jets front to wreak havoc on Prescott and the Cowboys’ offense.
