What White’s return means for the Jets
White couldn’t be coming again at a greater time for the Jets. Just as playoff hopes appeared useless after dropping their fourth straight recreation to the Jaguars on Thursday, all the things the Jets wanted to occur this week — specifically, Dolphins and Patriots losses — occurred, and so now they’re ready the place in the event that they win their final two video games towards the Seahawks and Dolphins they’ll possible make the postseason.
White is technically solely 1-2 because the starter this 12 months, however these two losses have been shut video games towards two of the NFL’s greatest groups (Vikings and Bills), and it’s plain that the Jets offense has been significantly better with White at QB than with Wilson. In three video games, White threw for 952 yards, which might mission to over 5,000 yards over a full season. His first recreation again will probably be towards a Seahawks group permitting 25.3 factors per recreation, which ranks twenty ninth within the NFL. — Rosenblatt
