The Jets made a quarterback change during Sunday’s game in Buffalo, with Tim Boyle replacing Zach Wilson late in the third quarter. At the time, the team was trailing 29-6. Wilson’s performance had been underwhelming, as he went 7-of-15 for 81 yards, scored one touchdown, and threw one interception. He was also sacked five times. Despite this being his first appearance on the Jets, Boyle has played in 17 games for various teams including the Packers, Lions, and Bears. In fact, he started three times for the Lions in 2021.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh has been supportive of Wilson since Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury in the first week of the season. However, with disappointing results and a playoff spot on the line, a permanent change may be in store for the team as they hope to keep their chances alive until Rodgers can return to action.
