2. Wilson’s Ghost Sack
Apparently, Sam Darnold isn’t the only Jets quarterback to see ghosts when he plays the Patriots.
You knew it was going to be a long day for Wilson and co. when this happened in the first quarter. Wilson dropped back to pass, danced around in the pocket for a few seconds, and then just fell to the ground completely unprompted.
It’s not every day you see a quarterback just fall down like that without being touched. Unless you’re a Jets fan — then you’ve probably seen it before.
Maybe Wilson was so scared of New England’s defense — which has owned him in the past — that he sacked himself to avoid getting hit. Or maybe MetLife Field really is haunted and have been terrorizing New York quarterbacks for years. Sunday was the first day of fall, after all, so it’s officially spooky season.
Either way, this play immediately enters the pantheon of Jets gaffes.
