EAST RUTHERFORD, N. J. — Zach Wilson was the Zach Wilson of old Sunday.

The former BYU quarterback threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter as Jets rallied to defeat Tennessee 27-24 in overtime. It was New York’s first win of the season.

Zach Wilson threw the ball well

For the game, Wilson completed 21 of 34 passes for 297 yards, including this one.

In addition to the two touchdown passes, Wilson also had one interception. 

After the game, Wilson was asked how he is able to stay so clam when things break down around him.

“You got to understand you are in this position for a reason,” Wilson said in his postgame press conference. “There’s going to be growing pains. But you need to do what you’ve done your whole life. You’ve got to be able to turn the noise off. And make it like practice and be able to execute.”

Good game on offense

The Jets finished with 355 yards of total offense in Sunday’s win. After Sunday’s win, Wilson was asked if he thought the offense has turned the corner.

“To an extent,” he said during the postgame press conference. “I wouldn’t say we’ve fully arrived. I would definitely say this is just another puzzle piece to where we’re trying to get.”

Wilson was sacked once in Sunday’s win.

The Jets (1-3) will play Atlanta next Sunday in London.
