The Miami Dolphins and New York Jets will make history by playing the NFL’s first-ever Black Friday game.
The AFC East matchup will showcase teams going in vastly different directions.
Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel has been the mastermind behind the league’s No. 1 offense in points per game (30.5), total yards per game (434), passing yards per game (291) and red zone touchdown percentage (73.5%). Leading Miami’s scorching-hot offense, the second-year coach is laser-focused on leading the team to the postseason. In a recent Hard Knocks: In Season with the Miami Dolphins episode, McDaniel was “fired up” about the team’s journey being documented.
The Jets, who had cameras on them during training camp with Hard Knocks, had a busy week. Head coach Robert Saleh made a change at the quarterback position. After the benching of Zach Wilson during New York’s Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills, veteran Tim Boyle will draw the start on Friday. Trevor Siemian will back up Boyle.
