For two weeks, quarterback Mike White took the New York Jets and their success-starved fan base on a joy ride, thrilling them with the allure of wild possibilities. The whole thing crashed Sunday with 11:47 remaining in the third quarter, when he tried to throw a 21-point touchdown pass -- a reckless deep ball that was intercepted by the Buffalo Bills.
White didn't just turn into a pumpkin in the 45-17 loss at MetLife Stadium; he turned into Zach Wilson, which is to say he stepped out of character and made bad decisions with the ball.

The story said it's time to turn back to Wilson at QB, who could be able to play and start this week, but is "still dealing with stuff," according to HC Robert Saleh from the story. It would make sense to refocus back to Wilson, who was the number-two overall pick. White did go up against the Bills, but as the story said, his bubble kind of burst. Wilson starting this week will obviously depend on his health. The team didn't commit to anyone so far for Week 3, but Flacco did come on in relief of White.
