The New York Jets-Carolina Panthers special teams matchup is a tight one

The New York Jets‘ stout defensive line versus the Carolina Panthers’ flimsy offensive line, Carolina’s tremendous weapons versus New York’s inexperienced defenders – all of these matchups have been discussed more than enough already.

It’s time to talk about the special teams battle.

Jets special teams coach Brant Boyer is looking to lead a turnaround after his once-elite unit dipped to 29th in special teams DVOA (a metric from Football Outsiders that captures overall impact) this past season. Boyer had the Jets ranked fourth in the category in 2019 and first in 2018.
