Mac Jones and Zach Wilson will see each other a lot in their respective careers in New England and New York. And while there is a small sample size, so far the showdown has gone squarely in Jones’ favor.
The Patriots beat the Jets 25-6 in Week 2 and are set for a rematch here in Week 7. In the first meeting between the two, Jones far outpaced Wilson simply by being a pedestrian. Jones was 22 of 30 with 186 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions.

Wilson, meanwhile, was 19 of 33 with 210 yards, but threw four interceptions and was sacked twice. Wilson’s first game against the Patriots has been indicative of much of the Jets’ offensive season to date.
The Jets currently rank last in points scored and 31st in total yards, while Wilson leads the NFL with nine interceptions in his first six games. Defensively, they are halfway there in terms of yards and points allowed, but they also don’t have an interception yet in six games.
The Patriots have one of the best passing defenses, which makes sense given Wilson’s game of four interceptions against them earlier this season. They have also defended the race well, although not as strongly, which means the Jets will have to be perfect in almost every respect to pull off an upset.

At 2-4, the Patriots are second in the AFC East, while the Jets are third at 1-4. A victory for the Pats reaffirms their second place, while a victory for the Jets propels them to second place.
