New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has reportedly been benched for Chicago Bears game

Zach Wilson ‘is BENCHED by the New York Jets for Sunday’s game at home to the Chicago Bears with players told in a team meeting’ – after his poor performance in dismal Patriots loss

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has been dropped for Sunday’s home game with the Chicago Bears, according to reports.

The 23-year-old was poor in the team’s woeful 10-3 defeat by the New England Patriots Sunday, which led to questions over his position.

Players were told in a team meeting Wednesday Wilson had been benched for the game this weekend, reported by ESPN

Back-up quarterback Mike White or veteran Joe Flacco will start Sunday’s matchup instead. 

Wilson’s numbers worsened after a second loss against the New England Patriots (3-10) this season, as he only completed nine of his 22 passes for 77 yards at Gillette Stadium. 

To make matters worse, when asked in his postgame comments if felt like he let the defense down, which had kept the Patriots offense to three points all afternoon despite the loss, Wilson responded with one-word only: ‘No.’

The Jets managed just two total yards in the second half, which makes the franchise record books as the fewest yards allowed by the team with Los Angeles holding  the previous low at 25 yards in 2016.

New York was also restricted to just 103 total yards by the Patriots and to only six first downs.

It was the third straight win for the Patriots (6-4) and their 14th straight over New York. They also denied the Jets (6-4) a chance to move into first place in the AFC East this late in the season for the first time since 2010. Instead, New York dropped to last place. 

Jets head coach Robert Saleh did not hold back in his assessment of his team’s second-half offense in their loss Sunday, calling it ‘dogs***’.
