Jets Go To 2-2 After Upset Win Over Steelers
Updated: May 18
The New York Jets are at .500% after a comeback win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 4. With that said the Jets own a 2-2 record and stand third in the AFC East. Sunday marked the first game back QB1 Zach Wilson, who got an injury in the preseason that sidelined him until the week 4 game. Wilson had flashes of a Franchise QB during several parts of the game, but the Jets O-line never really gave him a chance to get plays done. Wilson went 18/36 passing for 252 yards, throwing a touchdown and two interceptions. 10 of those 18 completions by Wilson came in Q4, where he went 10/12 passing to lead the Jets to victory.
Overall the Jets are at 2-2 and have a playoff capable team, but two big things stand in the way of playoff football: Unnecessary flags and a poor offensive line/lack of run. The Jets defense and offensive has gotten some of the most boneheaded penalties this season. You would think that guys who have played football their whole life would know not to hold, block in the back or take a late hit on the QB. The Jets also continue to run the ball on a consistent pace for little gain and usually run it for the first two downs of their four down set, making it predictable that they will throw the ball on third down. If New York can fix these simple but yet largely negative-effective things, then they can easily be one of the top teams in football.
