It was another embarrassing offensive performance for the NY Jets, which seems to be becoming quite the theme.
The NY Jets lost 32-6, this time finding the end zone just once and failing to convert a single third down without the help of a Buffalo Bills penalty. Below are offensive grades for the game, and beware, they aren't pretty.
Zach Wilson, QB, NY Jets
Where to even begin?
Zach Wilson was once again terrible. And yes, I'm fully aware his offensive line is in shambles, his receiving corps is putrid outside of Garrett Wilson, and his offensive coordinator shouldn't be calling plays for your local high school team.
But Wilson was terrible...again.
He finished 7-of-15 for 81 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. He was also sacked five times in just over two-quarters of football. He failed to complete a pass to a wide receiver in two and a half quarters, and the first catch his only good playmaker had came once Wilson was benched.
He finished with a QBR of 3.8. Just for reference, 50 is league average. His QB rating of 57.9 was also his lowest of the season. The Jets finished 0-for-11 on third down for the night.
Wilson displayed everything that got him benched last year in this start, and honestly, throughout the course of the last month of football when the Jets were playing must-win football. He holds the ball too long, fails to be decisive, lacks the ability to read a defense, and is completely scared to make even the smallest mistake.
The result was inevitable and honestly far overdue. Wilson was benched halfway through the third quarter and has since been demoted to third string. I'd be shocked if we ever see Wilson on the field again for the Jets.
