Something that nobody could have expected is happening in New York: first-time starter Mike White is dominating as the NY Jets quarterback.

After rookie second overall pick Zach Wilson went down with a knee injury back in Week 7, the former Western Kentucky Hilltopper took over and tore through the Cincinnati Bengals' defense in Week 8.

White has thrown for 500 yards and four touchdowns at a 78.6 completion percentage throughout his first five quarters with the New York Jets.

White's torrid hot play has led to the question: what do the Jets do at quarterback when Zach Wilson eventually returns?

In order to answer that question, though, it is important to analyze how Wilson has performed so far this season.

Overall, Wilson has posted a 1-5 record with 1,168 yards, a 57.1 percent completion rate, and a 4:9 touchdown to interception ratio, culminating in a 63.5 passer rating. Pro Football Focus has given him a poor 59.5 grade on the year.

It has been a rough start for the rookie, but it is important to look beyond the season stats. This article will break down each game that Wilson has played in this season.
