New York Jets QB Zach Wilson benched in loss to Buffalo Bills
The New York Jets are facing a potential quarterback shuffle after coach Robert Saleh was noncommittal regarding his starter following a poor offensive performance in the team’s 32-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Saleh’s decision to bench Zach Wilson and replace him with backup Tim Boyle has opened the door to speculation about the starting position moving forward.
Wilson’s struggles have been a cause for concern for the Jets, with Saleh stating that a decision on the starting quarterback will be made after reviewing game tape. Wilson’s performance against the Bills was lackluster, with the Jets finishing with season lows in total yards and points. Boyle also failed to make a significant impact in his debut.
The Jets’ offensive woes extend beyond the quarterback position, with injuries to the offensive line further compounding the team’s inability to sustain drives and score points. Top receiver Garrett Wilson also struggled, losing a fumble and being the intended receiver on Zach Wilson’s interception.
Despite the challenges, Saleh remains optimistic about the team’s prospects for improvement, stating that “scars sometimes accelerate the process” and that all players need to take accountability for the team’s performance.
This potential quarterback shuffle comes at a time of significant change for the Jets, with hopes for improvement hinging on the team’s ability to address its offensive struggles and find success in the remainder of the season.
