Zach Wilson Suffer Concussion in Shutout Loss to Dolphins
The New York Jets will miss the playoffs yet again. For the 13th consecutive year, the Jets will not be part of the postseason party after getting dropped by the Miami Dolphins 30-0 in South Beach. The playoff drought is now the longest in North American professional sports. The defeat also assured the Jets its eighth consecutive losing season.
Moreover, Jets quarterback Zach Wilson suffered a concussion in the beatdown.
The former number two overall pick left the game against Miami with the Jets down 24-0 in the second quarter. It was not a good day at all for Wilson who was under siege from the Miami pass rush. The Dolphins hit Wilson 12 times, sacking him four times. He had no time to set his feet as the Jets offensive line failed to protect him.
Jets Defense Struggles
On the other side of the ball, the Jets couldn’t stop wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, who chewed the Jets up for 142 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown in which Waddle badly beat D.J. Reed in single coverage.
Aaron Rodgers Return?
Before the game, there was speculation that Aaron Rodgers could get cleared for game action by next week’s Christmas Eve game against the Washington Commanders. However after Sunday’s loss knocked the Jets out of the playoff race, one has to wonder if Rodgers will play at all.
Saleh Losing the Locker Room?
While reports a few weeks ago indicated that Head Coach Robert Saleh and GM Joe Douglas would be safe to return in 2024, regardless of record, Jets beat reporters hinted at a possible locker room disconnect.
The Jets host the Commanders on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The Jets should know by Wednesday whether Rodgers will play or not. If he is not on the active roster by then, his season is over.
