HOUSTON — Zach is again, and now we’ll see what that means for the Jets’ attack.
Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson returns to the lineup Sunday towards the Texans, after he lacking the previous 4 video games with a knee harm. Wilson has watched the offense take off with out him — whether or not Mike White, Josh Johnson or Joe Flacco was taking part in quarterback.
The offense averaged 435.8 yards per recreation up to now 4 after averaging 272.3 within the first six video games with Wilson. The rookie from BYU mentioned he isn’t out to show something in his return, although.
“I don’t actually care what anyone actually thinks, if I’m being trustworthy,” Wilson mentioned. “I need to see enchancment in myself, so far as once I watch the tape on the finish of the day, do I see enchancment. Not essentially taking a look at a stat line or simply the win column. Once we deal with our enterprise at every particular person participant, the wins will handle themselves. And so I simply acquired to have the ability to go in there and grade myself based mostly off of how I’m doing each single play of simply making the very best resolution I can.”
Wilson mentioned his purpose is to play quick, inside the offense and provides his playmakers possibilities to make performs.
For the 2-8 Jets, this can be a recreation of their weight class. The two-8 Texans are a crew they’ll compete with and presumably get their third win. In fact, the Texans view the Jets the identical approach. The Texans are coming off a surprising 22-13 win over the Titans final week and ought to be feeling good about themselves.
The Jets have misplaced three straight video games, together with last week’s 24-17 loss to the Dolphins. That was a recreation the Jets had an opportunity to win however they made repeated boneheaded errors and value themselves that chance.
The dialog across the crew this week has been about not committing the self-inflicted wounds that value you video games.
“That’s what it’s all about. When you may have these conditions like that, are you able to study from it?” linebacker C.J. Mosley mentioned. “Whether or not you regulate it on the sideline the subsequent play or whether or not it comes again up a number of weeks down the street, that’s when groups begin to take their bounce once they cease making these … the issues that beat them or the issues that we do to get us beat, eradicate these errors and never have them reoccur, that’s how we take one small step to get higher.”
