Zach Wilson and the Jets are on the board.
The rookie rolled out in the third quarter and fired a 22-yard pass to a wide-open Corey Davis in the end zone for his first career touchdown pass. Wilson struggled throughout the first half due in large part to a lack of protection from his offensive line, but the rookie signal-caller turned it on to get New York in the end zone, going a perfect 4-4 on its first scoring drive.
