Game Preview

In their game against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Jets showed a level of consistency that had been missing all season. While Aaron Rodgers watched from the sidelines, quarterback Zach Wilson had his best game yet in a Jets jersey. He completed 28 out of 39 passes for 245 yards and 2 touchdowns. Unfortunately, despite their efforts, New York ended up with another loss. Sophomore running back Breece Hall is back in form with 6 carries for 56 yards and he has no snap count restrictions heading into week 5.

Russell Wilson led the Broncos to their first win of the season with a 31-28 victory over the Bears. Despite trailing 7-21 at halftime and losing RB Javonte Williams to injury, Wilson threw for 223 yards and three touchdowns. Rookie RB Jaleel McLaughlan emerged as the primary backup, rushing for 72 yards and a touchdown. Williams was limited in practice on Thursday and his status will require monitoring.


The Jets defense is a force to be reckoned with. If Zach Wilson can keep their offense moving they have a great chance of picking up a win here. With Breece Hall no longer on a snap count, I’m backing them to do just that.
