Zach Wilson, Davis Mills Benched
NFL Week 12 - New York Jets players were informed Wednesday that second-year quarterback Zach Wilson is not starting Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Wilson, currently 5-2 on the season, ranks 23rd among qualifying quarterbacks in both DVOA and DYAR. He is one year removed from finishing with the 16th worst DYAR from a rookie in DVOA history.
Wilson drew scrutiny this week during his postgame press conference following the Jets' game against the New England Patriots. Wilson, when presented his stat line of 9-for-22 for 77 yards and four sacks with two yards of second-half offense, answered "no" when asked whether he felt as though he let his team's defense down.
The Jets currently have Joe Flacco and Mike White rostered as quarterbacks for Sunday's game against Chicago. Flacco finished 1-2 in the three games he started this season during Wilson's stint with an injured ankle. According to SNY's Connor Rogers, Mike White took over backup quarterback duties from Flacco about a month ago, serving as the active quarterback on gamedays.
UPDATE: The Houston Texans have also benched their starting quarterback, Davis Mills, and will replace him with Kyle Allen for this week's game against the Miami Dolphins.
