The New York Jets have suffered another loss on their path to a playoff spot.
While the loss doesn’t eliminate them from the playoffs, it pushes them behind a list of teams for a spot.
However, fans were mostly talking about Zach Wilson, the former first-round pick who got benched in favor of Mike White.
With White nursing an injury, the ball was in the hands of Wilson once more for 2022.
So what are fans saying about his performance against the Detroit Lions on Sunday?
Fans Have Some Positive Things To Say About Wilson
While Wilson didn’t get his team the win, he didn’t get too much hate from fans.
In fact, some fans were praising him for one of his throws late in the game.
With under 15 second remaining, Wilson made a huge throw for a first down.

His throw had at least one fan jumping on the Wilson bandwagon, as they believe he should be the Jets starting quarterback.
I don’t care what anyone says; he should be the starter.

Another fan sees the young quarterback playing with heart, as his team’s playoff hopes are on the line.

However, one fan sees the last second heroics of Wilson as the “best play of his career.”
Best play of his career only to end in a loss sadly

But even with some fans being behind him, others still doubt him.
To those fans, he just got lucky with his performance against the Lions
He still sucks. Luckiest game of his life.

While he got the Jets 317 passing yards and two touchdowns, it wasn’t enough to win over everyone.
Those fans must be focused on his awful completion percentage, instead of his other highlights from Sunday’s game.
