Jets’ Zach Wilson having a very bad time with 3 1st-half interceptions vs. Patriots

Zach Wilson, Jets, Zach Wilson interceptions

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is not having a good game against the New England Patriots. The No. 2 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft tossed three first-half interceptions as the Jets went into halftime facing a 13-3 deficit against Mac Jones and Co.

Here’s the third interception:

After having a respectable NFL debut last week against the Carolina Panthers with 258 passing yards, two touchdowns, and a rushing 2-point conversion, Wilson is clearly feeling the nerves in Week 2. This is only natural for a rookie quarterback, and it’s likely going to be a roller-coaster ride for the youngster.

Both the Jets and Patriots are looking for their first wins of the season. The Jets lost to the Panthers, even with the solid play of Wilson after a sluggish start, while the Patriots lost to the Miami Dolphins in a close game that finished with a final score of 17-16.

At this rate and with this performance by Wilson, the Patriots are in a good position to get a victory. However, Wilson bounced back nicely from an awful first half last week, so we’ll see how he responds to the adversity this time around. Don’t count out the youngster just yet.
