Jets starting QB Tim Boyle vs. Dolphins in place of benched Zach Wilson

Tim Boyle will be the New York Jets’ starting quarterback against the Miami Dolphins on Friday (3 p.m. ET), two people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

Boyle replaces the benched Zach Wilson, who took over as the starter when Aaron Rodgers tore his left Achilles tendon four snaps into his debut with New York on Sept. 11.

It will be Boyle’s fourth NFL start and his first since 2021 with the Detroit Lions. The people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Monday because the team hasn’t announced the decision.

NFL Network first reported Boyle would take over at quarterback. 

How did the QB change impact the Dolphins-Jets game from a betting perspective? The news immediately moved the point spread from Miami -7.5 to -9.5. The line currently sits at Dolphins -10.

Wilson and the Jets’ offense have struggled mightily this season, and coach Robert Saleh pulled the 2021 No. 2 overall draft pick late in the third quarter of New York’s 32-6 loss at Buffalo on Sunday.

Zach Wilson benched ahead of Dolphins vs. Jets, Tim Boyle to start

Boyle replaced Wilson — and now gets a chance at the starting job on a short week for the Jets as they face the AFC East-rival Dolphins in the NFL’s first game played on Black Friday.

Boyle went 7 of 14 for 33 yards and an interception after replacing Wilson, who was 7 of 15 for 81 yards with a touchdown and an INT.

The Jets’ QB switch comes as Rodgers’ return to playing appears to be a possibility. FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reported that Rodgers has been telling the team he hopes to return to practice by Dec. 2, sending workout footage to the team that “blew their minds.”
