The New York Jets earned their second straight preseason victory on Saturday night, as they defeated the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field 23-14. Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson played almost the entire first half, and he looked sharp. He completed 9 of 11 passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns — both of which went to tight end Tyler Kroft. The No. 2 overall pick also established a rapport with Corey Davis, who caught four passes for 70 yards just in the first half.
Tremendous ply by Zach Wilson to end the first quarter. He was looking to his left, but nothing was open, so he stepped right and flicked a 27-yard pass down the sidelines to Corey Davis, setting the Jets up at the Packers 16.
