Although the Jets did not win the game against the Chiefs in the lavish event held at MetLife, everyone is praising their effort. Due to Patrick Mahomes’ outstanding start, the Chiefs roared to a perfect 17-0 in the first quarter alone. The Jets made a blazing 20-20 comeback by the third quarter, turning what the Chiefs thought would be a walk in the park into a nightmare. But on the field that day, one player in particular stole the show.

Zach Wilson was the best of the bunch, despite the final blunder that ultimately cost the Jets this game. By scoring twice and gaining nearly 250 yards on his own field, he went all out and even outperformed the likes of Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce. Zach became the first opposing quarterback to outperform Patrick Mahomes. However, the Chiefs defeated the Jets by a score of 3 to pick up their third victory of the year. But once more, the former head coach of the Denver Broncos shows his trust in the Jets’ quarterback.
