It was another dispiriting effort by the New York Jets and quarterback Zach Wilson as New York dropped its fourth in a row 19-3 to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In a match-up of top two quarterbacks in the 2021 NFL draft the difference between the two was quiet stark. Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence looked the part of an NFL quarterback with great potential, cutting the football through the wind and rain at MetLife Stadium.

Zach Wilson struggled to move the football. He was erratic with his throws, timid with his reads and the offense looked uninspired. The Jets managed only three first downs and 66 yards of offense in the entire first half.

When Wilson was finally lifted for fourth-stringer Chris Streveler mid-way through the third quarter, he had completed only nine of 18 passes for 92 yards and an interception.

Streveler, who lit a bit of a charge in the offense, actually outplayed Wilson in the quarter-plus he played in, completing 10-of-15 passes for 90 yards.

While Wilson took a brunt of the boos from the crowd, the Jets offensive line was bad in its protection, and failed to create any running lanes for the Jets running attack. The Jets ran for only 66-yards on the ground. Bam Knight ran for only -2 yards on six carries.

Fan reaction throughout Jaguars 19 – Jets 3 was epic to say the least.
