Who’s leading Jets backfield in Week 1?

We discuss who is leading the New York Jets backfield in the first game of the season.

The New York Jets are opening their season by taking on the Baltimore Ravens. They are without starting quarterback Zach Wilson who is likely to miss the first four weeks of the season due to an injury. With Joe Flacco under center, there is even more pressure on the running backs to step up and carry (pun intended) the offense. Second-round pick Breece Hall made his NFL debut but hasn’t been used as the lead back so far.
