Mike White’s Performance Creates Jets QB Controversy

Written by Tony Ghaul

The New York Jets benched second overall pick Zach Wilson in favor of Mike White heading into this week against the Chicago Bears. The result was dominant 31-10 win and a official QB controversy.

White was efficient, poised and confident with every throw, passing for 315 yards and three touchdown passes, completing 22 of 28 passes to completely turn around an offense that struggled mightily against the Patriots last week.

WR Garrett Wilson, the 10th overall selection in this year’s NFL Draft, scored the first two touchdowns for White after hauling in an eight-yard, wide open pass on the opening drive followed by a 54-yard touchdown.
