The NY Jets enter their Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs looking for any semblance of optimism following two difficult defeats at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots.
Unfortunately, things won't get any easier tonight. This will be the first game the Jets play on Sunday Night Football in over a decade, and while they are home, the Jets enter this game as heavy underdogs.
The Chiefs remain one of the best teams in football, fresh off a dominant 41-10 win over the Chicago Bears a week ago. As for the Jets, their 32nd-ranked defense has made life very difficult for the team over the last few weeks.
Zach Wilson enters this game with one final opportunity to prove that he should remain the Jets' starting quarterback moving forward. Reports suggest Wilson could be replaced as soon as next week if he falters tonight.
The Jets have released their list of inactives ahead of this crucial Week 4 matchup, and there aren't any real surprises outside of defensive tackle Al Woods. The Jets opt to keep an extra cornerback active (Bryce Hall) instead of Woods, with the team clearly expecting a pass-heavy offensive approach from Kansas City.
Starting safety Tony Adams (hamstring) and backup offensive lineman Wes Schweitzer (concussion) will each miss another game due to injury.
As for the Chiefs, they will be without standout linebacker Nick Bolton (ankle) and cornerback Jaylen Watson (shoulder). Below is a full list of every inactive player in tonight's game.
