The New York Jets had an abysmal offensive showing in Sunday’s 10-3 loss to the New England Patriots. Many are pointing the finger at QB Zach Wilson for the offensive struggles.
Wilson has Jets fans fuming after his postgame interview. He was asked “do you feel like you let the defense down at all.” Without hesitation, Zach Wilson said, “no.”
Wilson completed just nine of his 22 passes for a season-low 77 yards. Two potential interceptions were dropped by Patriots defenders. The Jets had zero success running the ball, totaling just 59 yards on the ground with Wilson leading the team with 26 rushing yards.
The Jets had just six first downs and punted the ball 10 times, the last of which resulted in an 84-yard return for a touchdown by Marcus Jones with five seconds left in the fourth quarter to give the Patriots the victory.
The Jets defense had a outstanding performance despite the loss. They sacked Patriots QB Mac Jones six times.
The loss extends their losing streak against the Patriots to 14 straight games, the longest active streak of losing to a single team.
