The Jets made a quarterback change during Sunday’s game against the Bills in Buffalo. With the Jets trailing 29-6 in the third quarter, Zach Wilson was pulled and replaced by Tim Boyle. Wilson had been struggling on the field, with a record of 7-of-15 for 81 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while being sacked five times. This was Boyle’s first appearance with the Jets. He has played in 17 games for various teams, including the Packers, Lions, and Bears, and he started three games for the Lions in 2021.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh has been supportive of Wilson since Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury early in the season. However, despite his support, the team’s performance has been underwhelming. With no clear solution on the horizon and their playoff hopes fading away, it is possible that a lasting change may be needed to keep them competitive.
