Zack Wilson wanted all the INT love/hate this week… Zach Wilson decided that he needed to get his name known. He wanted to make Ty Detmer feel better, so Zach Wilson did something. He went out threw 2 INTS on HIS FIRST TWO PASSES OF SUNDAYS JETS AND PATRIOTS GAME. He would finish with 3 INTS and 3 pass completions to his Jets team mates at half time. He truly is a great warrior for former failed Detroit Lions Quarterbacks, and is laying out his desire to be a Lion. Maybe he’s just terrible or maybe the Patriots are going to be relevant again.
BELOW INFORMATION FROM ESPN.COM-
• Wilson became the third rookie in the past 40 years to have four interceptions in his first 10 attempts, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The previous two were the Chicago Bears’ Kyle Orton (2005) and the Buffalo Bills’ Nathan Peterman (2017).
• Wilson joined Mark Sanchez and Sam Darnold as the only rookies in Jets history to throw four interceptions in a game. Sanchez actually did it twice in 2009, including a five-interception debacle.
• Wilson became the first Jets player in 40 years to throw interceptions on his first two passes. The last to do it in any game was the Seattle Seahawks’ Tarvaris Jackson in 2011.
• Wilson was the first Jets quarterback to throw three interceptions in the first half of a game since Geno Smith in 2014. That’s a rare occurrence in the NFL. Since the start of the 2020 season, only one other quarterback has done it — Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings.
• Wilson became only the fourth rookie top-five pick to have four interceptions and no touchdown passes in a game in the past 20 years. The previous two were Jets — Darnold and Sanchez. Alex Smith did it in 2005 as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.
