New York Jets’ running backs are making the offensive line look bad (Film)

The Jets are ranked 31st in rush offense DVOA. They have gotten only 3.8 yards per carry out of their running backs, placing 29th in the NFL.

This team’s running game has been bad. So, clearly, the offensive line must be to blame, right?

Well, not exactly. Most metrics that aim to separate the offensive line from the ball-carriers tell us that this Jets offensive line has actually done a decent job on the ground.

As of the conclusion of Week 9, the Jets’ offensive linemen have combined for a cumulative Pro Football Focus run-blocking grade of 65.
