The New York Jets are taking a confident stance with their rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, and they should be. The first-year player has been under fire after his poor performance against the Patriots last Sunday. But he is confident that he can turn things around this season and bounce back from his disaster of a game. “I’m just going to keep my head down, stay humble, work hard,” said Wilson in an interview with ESPN.I plan to bounce back this Sunday.”
Jets head coach Lex Hilliard says that Zach will continue to be the starting quarterback throughout the season. “He hasn’t taken anything for granted,” said Hilliard in an interview with ESPN. He’s trying to learn.” Lex also addressed the criticism that Zach has been receiving by calling it “overblown”.
Wilson is coming off a game in which he threw five interceptions in his team’s 42-3 loss to the Patriots. This is the worst defeat so far this season for the Jets after they suffered a loss to the Raiders just four weeks ago. Wilson says that he is ready to bounce back from his mistakes and turn things around for this week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. “I’m feeling more comfortable on the field with my teammates,” said Wilson in an interview with ESPN about how he feels heading into Week 6. “I’ve been working really hard to continue improving on my mistakes. One game doesn’t define me, and I plan to keep working hard.”
Jets fans are still hopeful despite their rookie quarterback’s poor performance in Week 5. Zach has shown great potential so far this season but there is clearly still room for improvement. “I always knew he would be a special player,” said Jets fan Alainna Kelly-Efrem.
Week 6 is a crucial game for the Jets as they try to get on a winning streak after a rough start this season where they have lost two consecutive games. The Seahawks are one of the top teams in the league and the Jets need to play their best if they want to stand a chance.
Zach is ready for this big moment and he is confident that he will bounce back from his loss last week. “I’m going to keep working hard on my mistakes,” said Zach in an interview with ESPN shortly after the game. “I know I can do better. I’m going to keep staying in the playbook and have fun on the field.”
The Seahawks are currently at the top of the AFC West Division with three wins and one loss. The Jets, on the other hand, are currently at third place in their division. This game is expected to be a tough matchup for both sides as they try to rise up in their respective divisions.
It’s still too early for fans to lose hope in the Jets. They have shown potential so far this season and there is still a long way to go before they give up on them.
“We always do.”
The game starts at 8:30 p.m. EST on Sunday night at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. It will be televised on ESPN and live streamed online at WATCHESPN .
Zach is expected to play a good game against the Seahawks this Sunday and fans are hopeful that he can redeem himself from his previous performance in Week 5 when he threw five interceptions in the loss to the Patriots. “I know he will bounce back,” said Jets fan Tom Rafferty. The Jets are currently tied for third place in the AFC East division while the Seahawks have been at the top of the NFC West division since Week 2 after their win against the Packers.
