2. NY Jets QB Zach Wilson throws for 300 yards in his return

The Jets have seen four quarterbacks throw for over 290 yards in a game this season which marks the first time in NFL history such a feat has occurred. The fact that they're still 2-8 makes that stat even weirder.

Nonetheless, Wilson will have a chance to become the third Jets quarterback this season, after Mike White and Josh Johnson, to hit the 300-yard mark in his return.

He nearly topped it back in Week 4 when he threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns in the team's upset victory over the Titans. The offense has come a long way since that game.

While some will point to the absence of Wilson and insist that his absence was the greatest impetus for that change, that's a false narrative. The Jets have undoubtedly been aided by competent quarterback play, but the rest of the unit has stepped up their game as well.

That should benefit Wilson who spent a few weeks watching from the sideline. It might be a bit rich to expect 300 yards in his first game back, but he's also helped out a little by his matchup.

The Texans' defense is currently allowing the third-most yards and the eighth-most passing yards per game. With Michael Carter out, the Jets might be even more inclined to lead on their passing game.

If Zach Wilson looks more like the Week 4 version of himself on Sunday, the rookie could be in line for a big day.
