Coach Robert Saleh said rookie signal-caller Zach Wilson will play one or two more series, for the second preseason game of the New York Jets, then the two series he debuted last week. On Saturday afternoon, in front of a national audience, Wilson took full advantage of his increased exposure. Fans can buy NFL London Tickets and Falcons vs Jets Tickets from our website.
Wilson played four fouls against the Green Bay Packers in the first half, three of which ended in points. In his third and fourth parade, Wilson passed freshman Jets player Tyler Kroft with a touchdown. His first shot ended with Matt Ammendola’s 53-yard field goal, and his second shot was at Saleh to take the ball out of Wilson’s hands for the third, fourth and first time of the packers.
Overall, the #1 pick completed 9 out of 11 tries, 128 yards, and 2 points in the 23-14 win over the Packers, finishing with a passing score of 154.7. According to NFL London research, all of these scores are higher than the former Jets’ top three and “chartered quarterback” Sam Darnold scored in the 2018 and 2019 preseason games with the Jets.
This, of course, was just the start of a preseason afternoon game. The defensive line-up against the Packers was packed with players from the second team, but Wilson was stable for the second time in a few weeks for the team that has only suffered serious injuries this season. It’s just good news. Lost Carl Lawson.
Wilson’s game on Saturday made people forget about that departure time, ignoring uncertain ideas about the future of the New York Jets.
The rapid progress and faster activation of the former BYU QB were fully demonstrated in the match against Green Bay. Wilson seemed undisturbed in Gang Green’s pocket. If his first reading was not opened, he would intuitively lift it. Lifts their eyes and floats back. Wilson’s mobility in shoe design, including Kroft’s second TD, was spot on – his ball position, especially on Kroft’s first goal and several throws, and even more.
Wilson converted two-thirds of his mistakes in the recently developed Corey Davis through the air, and Elijah Moore was also missed due to injury, as Wilson’s favorite target in his twenties. Davis completed four catches on six goals for 70 yards and was also Wilson’s second three-point goal, which was correct but was taken by Packer’s rookie cornerback Eric Stokes Broke. Davis’ final catch, coming 27 yards from the 16-yard line in Green Bay at the end of the first quarter, was Wilson’s most sure-fire shot in the afternoon and symbolized the rapid integration of the veteran free agent he had brought from Tennessee.
Wilson said of Davis after the game,” He’s the best player, I hope he gets trusted and I’ll let him get the ball. I really like it and all the one-to-one routes he will open up, I trust him a lot.”
The rookie quarterback isn’t always asked to push the ball to the frontcourt, although he did so with confidence on Saturday. According to Next Gen Stats, 7 of his 11 attempts were under 5.0 yards, 3 of them after the melee line, and 2 of them were Davis and Jeff Smith getting good results.
But the first “home” game against the Philadelphia Eagles remains to be seen whether Wilson will see more action in the Jets’ final preseason game. With the best draft picks from Mike White and James Morgan, with as many NFL starting QBs as he is, Wilson is sure to start in the first week against Darnold and the Carolina Panthers, so he won’t have to prove he’s worthy of the role of QB1.
Saleh said of Wilson after the game: “His trial is light years ahead of the average rookie’s trial.” For him, the results are sometimes good and sometimes bad when he sees them. In both cases, he has to find a way to get better.”
