Jets Set to Make ‘Pretty Quick’ Decision on Zach Wilson’s Future After Bills Loss

The immediate future of New York Jets starting quarterback Zach Wilson is very much up in the air.

Following a brutal 32-6 loss in Week 11 to the Buffalo Bills, head coach Robert Saleh was non-committal about his quarterback situation.

“We’re gonna watch the tape and we’ll make a decision tomorrow,” Saleh told the media when asked who is the starting quarterback moving forward.

The Jets will have a short week ahead of its next matchup in Week 12. Gang Green is set to play in the first ever Black Friday game versus the Miami Dolphins and because of that “everything is accelerated.”

“You don’t have Monday and Tuesday to dissect and breathe for a second, but we’ll be pretty quick [with our quarterback decision],” Saleh said on Sunday, November 19.

Wilson Had Another Brutal Showing as the QB for the Jets

The former BYU product finished 7-of-15 for 81 passing yards, throwing one touchdown pass, and one interception. Wilson was also sacked five times and averaged only 5.4 yards per passing attempt.

Wilson got benched late in the third quarter for veteran backup Tim Boyle. The only reason the Jets didn’t pull Wilson from the game sooner was because of what transpired at the end of the first half.

On fourth and two from their own 24-yard line, the Jets pulled off a fake punt. Punter Thomas Morstead completed a pass to cornerback Brandin Echols to convert and keep the drive alive.

Ultimately the Jets scored a touchdown on that drive when Wilson found running back Breece Hall for the nine-yard score.

Rich Cimini of ESPN said that drive “might have saved” Wilson from getting pulled at halftime.

Cimini said after the game that Saleh being non-committal about Wilson being his quarterback was the first time that has happened this season.

This is a developing story and we’ll provide new details as they become available.
