Week 2: NY Jets QB Zach Wilson vs. New England

Zach Wilson's performance against New England in Week 2 may have been one of the worst quarterback performances in franchise history. Wilson made Sam Darnold's "seeing ghosts" game seem like a masterful performance.

Ok, maybe not masterful.

But it is difficult to overestimate just how badly Wilson played. The rookie threw four interceptions, and for several of them, it was difficult to tell what Wilson was even thinking on the play.

The worst part of his performance was that he single-handedly lost the Jets the game. The defense was stellar to start and the rest of the offense was doing well, too.

Wilson had a strong running game to lean on as fellow rookie Michael Carter ripped through the Patriots' run defense for his current season-high 5.36 yards per carry.

And despite what a viral video showed of the Jets' offensive line, Gang Green had strong pass protection against a tough pass rush.

Still, Wilson threw interception after interception, leading to what will hopefully go down as his worst career performance.

The Jets fell to their division rivals 6-25.
