Zach Wilson sees “cool opportunity” against Patriots this week

Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has started three games against the Patriots over his two NFL seasons and none of them has gone well.

He threw four interceptions in a Week Two loss last season and then got hurt in a 54-13 Week Seven loss to New England. The two teams met again in Week Eight this year and the Jets saw a four-game winning streak come to an end as Wilson threw three interceptions in a 22-17 loss.

This Sunday wraps up the season series between the AFC East clubs and Wilson said it’s a big game “not necessarily to feel like I gotta prove anything” against a team he’s struggled against, but because it is “a cool opportunity” to play the kind of football that’s got them to 6-3 on the year.

“It’s frustrating, but for me, my mindset this week is taking it one play at a time, how can I make the best decision on that play, don’t get too far ahead of myself as far as feeling like I need a big play or I need to make something happen,” Wilson said, via Steve Serby of the New York Post. “Just trusting in the offense, trusting in the guys around me.”

That was the kind of performance that Wilson turned in against the Bills the week after the Patriots loss and pulling off a similar performance would go a long way toward snapping the Jets’ 13-game losing streak against New England.

  1. I wonder if it gets old for professional athletes to keep answering the same lame questions from the media like this? I mean, what do they expect him to say? I can now see why Marshawn Lynch would just say “I’m just here so I don’t get fined”.

  2. Let us know how you feel after another 5 sack, 3 interception performance which is what you’re about to have

  3. Any time you face the likes of a patriots laughable quarterback group, it should be pretty cool.

  4. This kid is going to get eaten alive in Foxborough. He’s been running his mouth since the loss 3 weeks ago.

    Who is he kidding? Judon will eat him for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The kid actually thinks he’s going to see the same defense as last time. lol

    Zack, the macaroni Jones destruction tour begins and you will be the first casualty.

    Umm, your QB is Kirk Cousins. lol

  6. I think fans are underestimating this guy. He missed a lot of last season.

    I think he has the most potential out of that class. His skills are elite; he just need to cut down on the mistakes. The Bills got great pressure on him in the last game and the coverage was good, but he was still making good throws all game.

    The AFCE is such a different division now. Very good quarterback play top to bottom (and the coaches are all solid as well).

    Matt Patricia, Joe Judge – definitely NOT solid.

  8. AFC East maybe the most competive division in the league which is wild and great to see
