Jets Quarterback Provided Much Needed Spark On Thursday Night

Although it didn't end well, his appearance definitely gave the New York Jets offense the spark it needed.

That was exactly the plan, as head coach Robert Saleh said they used quarterback Chris Streveler on Thursday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars to ''spark'' the ground game.

Called up from the practice squad before the game, Streveler played the majority of the second half in Zach Wilson's place, rushing for 54 yards on nine carries and passing for 90 yards with no scores.

Wilson was brutal on Thursday night, throwing for 92 yards and an interception on 18 attempts before Robert Saleh decided he had seen enough.

Speaking on Saleh's decision to yank him from the game, Wilson said, ''You can't blame him in that situation. He put Chris out there, and he's obviously great with his legs and his arm, and he was able to give us a little spark there. You could see that was the most we moved the ball all day, so you can't blame him.''

Nothing was working for the Jets on Thursday, as Zonovan Knight rushed six times for -2 yards and Michael Carter two times for just six yards. 

It seems almost certain that Zach Wilson will not be getting another start this season, but with Mike White still injured, that remains to be seen.
