Zach Wilson wasn’t satisfied with his game against the Houston Texans in his return from injury.
The rookie is, however, glad he’ll get to work on getting better this week with another win under his belt after his team picked him up to lead the New York Jets to a 21-14 win.
Wilson threw for 145 yards and ran for a touchdown in his return from a sprained right knee, helping the Jets snap a three-game skid.
“I wasn’t happy with how I performed, the ups and downs of it all,” he said. “But I’ve got to keep going. This is all part of the process. It feels really good having a win. That’s the goal is to win the game. I’m really happy we were able to pull it out.”
Wilson, the No. 2 overall pick in April who missed the last four games, was rusty early and threw an interception but put the Jets (3-8) on top with a 4-yard scamper in the third quarter.
The Texans (2-9) hoped to build on an upset of Tennessee last week that ended an eight-game skid and looked good early. Tyrod Taylor threw two touchdown passes in the second quarter to give Houston 14-3 lead, but the Texans couldn’t do anything offensively after that.
