In an unfortunate turn of events, quarterback Zach Wilson's Week 11 came to an early end as the New York Jets suffered a devastating 32-6 loss against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Wilson, who struggled throughout the game, managed to complete 7 out of 15 passes for 81 yards, including one touchdown and one interception before being replaced by third-string quarterback Tim Boyle before the start of the fourth quarter.
On the other side of the field, Bills' quarterback Josh Allen led his team to victory with an impressive performance, completing 20 out of 32 passes for 275 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. From the start, it was clear that Wilson was in for a tough day as his struggles continued to plague the Jets' offense throughout the game.
Wilson's troubles were evident early on when Bills cornerback Rasul Douglas intercepted his pass in the second quarter, narrowly missing another interception on the previous play. This marked Wilson's seventh interception of the season, highlighting the difficulties he has faced in his rookie year.
The Jets' only bright spot came when punter Thomas Morstead faked a punt and threw an 18-yard pass to cornerback Brandon Echols. This successful play led to the team's first touchdown in 13 quarters and 41 drives. However, it wasn't enough to turn the tide for the struggling Jets.
As the Jets entered the fourth quarter facing a daunting 23-point deficit, Wilson was benched in favor of Tim Boyle. Boyle, who had limited NFL experience with only one appearance last season, took over the reins for the remainder of the game. Unfortunately, his performance didn't fare much better as he threw an interception that was later reversed by replay. Boyle was soon sacked on his next attempt, forcing Morstead to step in for a punt.
As to whether Wilson will reclaim the starting position in their upcoming game against the Miami Dolphins on Friday, it remains uncertain. With the Jets currently holding a 4-6 record, the coaching staff will have to evaluate and decide the best course of action moving forward.
