With just four victories, the 2021 New York Jets didn’t exactly unfold the way the organization and its fans expected. However, there’s a lot to be excited about.

Despite a tough stretch—following Week 2’s loss to the New England Patriots—Zach Wilson improved down the stretch. His clearly messed-up mental state corrected itself over the last five or six weeks of the season (save for Week 18 in Buffalo where he had no help).

Fellow rookie Michael Carter did his thing for the team on the ground, leading the team in rushing, while Elijah Moore also flashed his talents when he was on the field.

The key for this young team, moving forward, will be health. Adding talent is key, but finding a way to ensure that availability is the most important attribute remains of the utmost importance via growth.

New York Jets stats for the 2021 NFL season is about rookie, rookie and rookie.

Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, rookie running back Michael Carter and rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore currently lead the New York Jets in passing yards, rushing yards and receiving yards through 14 weeks of the 2021 NFL season.

Yes, Joe Douglas‘s team is a young one, but he’s hoping it’ll pay dividends moving forward.

Defensively, Robert Saleh‘s unit is firmly ranked dead last, whereas Mike LaFleur‘s offense is hovering in the middle of the pack in many offensive categories.
