Jets benching Zach Wilson versus Bears
New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is not starting Week 12 against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
Wilson is being benched following a 10-3 loss to the New England Patriots in which he completed 9-of-22 passes for 77 scoreless yards. It was the fourth time in seven games this season that Wilson failed to throw a touchdown pass. Mike White will presumably start in Week 12, but Joe Flacco is a viable option as well. They should both be at least a modest upgrade for the Jets' pass-catchers over Wilson moving forward.
Wilson has the second-worst completion percentage over expected in the NFL this season and he finished with the worst rate in 2021, so the Jets might be ready to move on completely from last year's No. 2 overall pick. White or Flacco will have a plus matchup in Week 12 versus a Bears team that has the sixth-worst defense and the fifth-worst pass defense in our adjusted metrics.
