Connecticut's Tim Boyle Makes New York Jets Debut
Connecticut native Tim Boyle made his regular season debut as a New York Jet tonight against the Buffalo Bills.
Coming in late during a Big Apple fiasco to replace the benched Zach Wilson; Boyle immediately showed the Jets what he could do, going 3-for-3 passing for 14 yards. Boyle was moving the chains until a Garrett Wilson fumble changed the offenses.
Boyle came back out with 10:37 left as New York trailed 29-6. Expectations for Boyle were low; New York was losing in blowout fashion late, which meant his job was damage management. A great Bills’ defense led to a quick three-and-out.
With Zach Wilson being benched, Tim Boyle’s play could ultimately decide who Gang Green rides with to finish out the season - or at least until Aaron Rodgers, who is eyeing a mid-December return, gets back.
Tim Boyle would finish the night 7-for-14 passing with 33 yards and an interception.
Update: It was announced on Monday that Tim Boyle has been named starter and will start in the Black Friday game against AFC East-leading Miami Dolphins.
