Zach Wilson comes alive at MetLife Stadium

What. A. Throw.

Scratch that. What. A. Couple. Of. Throws.

Late in the third quarter of the New York Jets Week 4 game vs. the Tennessee Titans at MetLife Stadium, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson gave fans a little preview of what’s to come for him.

On a third and 6, following a failed second down run attempt by Ty Johnson, Wilson got flushed out of the pocket. He rolled to his right and let it rip for a beautiful 54-yard gain to receiver Keelan Cole.

Not many humans can make this throw.

The play set up the Jets for a go-ahead field goal.

Then, as the capper, Wilson threw two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. The first went to Jamison Crowder on a flat route.

The second of the two scores brought the Jets into the wonderful high-flying world of 2021 professional football—where taking downfield shots is usually worth the risk.

These are the kind of plays that made Wilson the second overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. He has struggled to start the season, but it’s nevertheless encouraging for Jets fans to see flashes like this of amazing potential from their young quarterback.
