The Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets played the first ever Black Friday game this week. Both these teams are trending in opposite directions this season. The Jets have struggled to win games and are stuck in weird quarterback situation. The Dolphins on the other hand are in contention to win the Super Bowl and have one of the best offenses in the league.

The Jets recently announced a change at starting quarterback after poor performances from Zach Wilson. The job was handed over to Tim Boyle and this was his first game as the Jets starter. The 29-year old QB replaced Wilson in the Jets’ week 11 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Boyle struggled in that game and the Dolphins game wasn’t different. He finished the game with 179 yards, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions enroute to a 34-13 defeat.

The QB revealed that he had ‘no clue’ if he will remain the Jets starter going forward. Boyle said after the game:

I have no clue what happens moving forward, but I can control what I can control and I know we’re going to go back, and Coach said it best at the end of the game in the locker room: We have to get our minds right to have the best six weeks of our life moving forward. We have six more games, we’re going to put our best foot forward and we’re going to try to win all six. We’re going to keep pushing, we’re going to keep fighting on offense.

Boyle was signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He spent three seasons as the backup to Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay and later, signed with the Detroit Lions in 2021. Boyle signed with the Jets in 2023 and was supposed to be the QB3 in New York. However, after a season-ending injury to Rodgers and a string of poor performances by Zach Wilson, Boyle was named the starter against the Dolphins.

Robert Saleh gave a lukewarm assessment of Tim Boyle’s performance against the Dolphins

The New York Jets lost their seventh game of the season against the Miami Dolphins on Friday. Their starting QB for the game, Tim Boyle, had a rough outing as the Jets were blown away by a much better Dolphins team. The QB replaced Zach Wilson as the team’s starter this week, but failed to lead the Jets to a victory. HC Robert Saleh talked about his performance after the game.

Saleh said:

I thought he stayed in there, kept battling, did some good things and some things he has to be better at.

When asked about a possible QB change again going forward, Saleh said, “I’m not there yet,” with Trevor Siemian waiting in the wings.

The Jets will play their next game against the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday. It will be interesting to see if Saleh sticks with Boyle as his starter or gives Siemian a chance in the next game.
