In a sign of just how good the Jets could be with Aaron Rodgers the Jets managed to beat cross-town rivals the Giants despite another absolute shocker from QB Zach Wilson who got over a quarter of his passing yards on two fourth quarter throws.
Wilson completed 2 impressive passes to move the Jets 58 yards to score the tying field goal as time expired in regulation. After the Giants went three and out to start overtime Wilson underthrew Taylor for a 30-yard pass interference penalty to put the Jets in field goal range.
The 33-yard winning field goal was kicked on the very next play.
WILSON LEADS JETS TO WIN IN OT
For his part, Jets QB Wilson was very confident “We had no doubt going into overtime that we were going to win that game,” Wilson said after the game. “I think it’s situations exactly like what we just went through is why you have to remain confident. All it takes is a play. And, really, all it took was two plays.”
Head Coach Robert Saleh celebrated the Jets team spirit, “A lot of resilience from this group,” Saleh said. “It feels like it’s the mark of this group. It never feels like it’s out.”
The Jets are a team that would be very dangerous if they had a genuine QB. They only have 4 genuinely good teams to face the rest of the way, so if they can keep gutting wins out, and get Rodgers back for the playoffs, this could still be an interesting season in New York.
