Another pair of picks

Wilson completed 19 of his 35 pass attempts for 160 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Wilson was rarely able to maintain significant offensive drives, and the Broncos had 11 minutes more of possession as a result. His continued problem with turnovers is concerning, though it is worth noting that Wilson's second interception came with under a minute left in the game while the Jets were pushing down the field in an attempt to avoid a shutout. Even so, Wilson has looked far from prepared for the highest level of competition by throw seven picks as compared to just two touchdowns three games into his career. Wilson should have the chance to get back on track in Week 4 against a Tennessee secondary that has been exploited early on in the campaign.

Four picks against Pats

Wilson completed 19 of 33 passes for 210 yards and four interceptions in Sunday's 25-6 loss to the Patriots. He also rushed three times for 19 yards.

Analysis: Wilson got off to a painfully slow start for the second consecutive game, throwing interceptions on each of his first two passes and four of his first 10. He settled down after that but still failed to lead the Jets' offense into the end zone. With 20 points through two games, the start of the Wilson era isn't looking much different from the end of the Sam Darnold era for Gang Green. Wilson will look to turn things around in a Week 3 road matchup with a Denver team that just limited fellow rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence to 118 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

Tale of two halves in debut

Wilson completed 20 of 37 passes for 258 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 19-14 loss to Carolina. He didn't register a rushing attempt but ran in a two-point conversion.

Analysis: Wilson struggled mightily in the first half, completing only six of 16 passes for 84 yards and an interception en route to a 16-0 deficit. He settled down after halftime and finished with a respectable stat line, even though New York's comeback attempt ultimately came up short. Wilson's first two career touchdown passes both went to Corey Davis, spanning 22 and eight yards, respectively. The rookie second overall pick was especially impressive on New York's final drive before the Panthers ran out the clock, throwing for 108 yards and a touchdown on that possession alone. Wilson will look to replicate his second-half form and forget his first-half struggles in his MetLife Stadium debut against the Patriots in Week 2.
