The Jets have made a change in their quarterback position. With the team trailing 29-6 in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Bills, Zach Wilson was pulled from the game and replaced by Tim Boyle. Wilson had been struggling, completing just 7 out of 15 passes for 81 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while being sacked five times before being relieved of duty. This is Boyle’s first appearance for the Jets. He has previously played in 17 games for the Packers, Lions, and Bears and has even started three times for the Lions in 2021.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh has been supporting Wilson since Aaron Rodgers went down with a torn Achilles injury in week one of the season. However, despite his steadfast support, the results have been disappointing and it seems that a lasting change may be on the horizon as the team holds out hope that they can stay in playoff contention long enough for Rodgers to return to action.
