Film review from New York Jets’ loss to New England: Zach Wilson sputters, Garrett Wilson shines, defense thrives yet again
The New York Jets were on an impressive four-game win streak, featuring a long-awaited division win against the Dolphins and a trio of road victories in tough venues: Pittsburgh, Green Bay, and Denver.
The Jets were looking to put the cherry on top with a home win against the hated New England Patriots. A victory over New England would push their record to a very impressive 6-2, putting them in an excellent position to make the playoffs.

A loss before hosting the Super Bowl favorite Buffalo Bills would surely hurt. The playoffs could still be hoped for, but the Jets wouldn’t be in nearly as prime of a position to make it.
More importantly than all of the playoff talk, the Jets owed the Patriots a whooping after 12 straight losses, including the most recent loss, where the Patriots ran up the score to 54-13.
The coaches, players and stadium were all buzzing.
But the Jets failed to capitalize on the opportunity.
Brutally, the loss was almost squarely on the shoulders of the Jets’ most important player, Zach Wilson.
While GM Joe Douglas has built a roster that is legitimately ready to compete for the playoffs and maybe even more in future seasons, none of it matters if they can’t figure out the quarterback position.
And so far, Wilson has not progressed from the end of his 2021 campaign. If anything, he has shown regression.
We broke down the game film to reveal what really happened against New England.
- Just how bad was Zach Wilson?
- Who else was at fault for the loss?
- Are there any positives to take away?
All of that and much more is broken down on this edition of Blewett’s Blitz!
