The Jets have had an up-and-down season thus far in 2022, and that's true for thier quarterback position as well. With Zach Wilson, Mike White and Joe Flacco all making starts for the Jets this season, continuity at the position hasn't exactly been a luxury of the team this year. Nevertheless, they're still 7-7 and in the playoff hunt.

After some incredibly poor performances, former No. 2 overall pick Wilson was benched in favor of Mike White, who answered with a stellar showing. However, White was injured in Week 14 and not cleared by doctors to play in Week 15, providing Wilson another shot. Wilson responded, throwing for over 300 yards and 2 touchdowns, albeit in a loss.

Jets Week 16 Starting QB

As the team looks ahead to Week 16, head coach Robert Saleh indicated that Wilson will get the start once again, as White is still dealing with the rib issues that kept him out of the Week 15 game. While he didn't officially name Wilson the starter, he did say that White has "a lot of hurdles" to go through before he's ready to play.

The Jets' playoff hopes are on the line every week, as they most likely need to win out in order to cement themselves a spot in the postseason.

If Wilson can play like he did in Week 15, then he should give them a chance to win every one of those games. However, if he resorts back to the play and attitude that got him benched, then the Jets might as well pack it in now.
