Joe Flacco To Start for Jets in Week 11 vs Dolphins

According to reports, Zach Wilson, who has been sidelined with a PCL injury since Week 7 is still not healthy enough to play for this week. The New York Jets will instead be turning to Joe Flacco to get the start in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins.

 

In relief of Zach Wilson, Mike White was initially getting the starts as he played against the Bengals, Colts, and Bills but after a four-interception performance against Buffalo, Robert Saleh decided to go with the veteran.

Ironically, he was on the team last year starting four games for New York. Over that time, he threw for six touchdowns, three interceptions, a 6.4 yards per attempt, 172.8 yards per game and played to an 80.6 rating. He originally signed with the Eagles in the offseason but Joe Douglas traded a conditional sixth-round pick for him before the NFL trade deadline in early November for depth at the position.

In relief of the injured Mike White this past week, Flacco went three of three for 47 yards and a touchdown.

 

On Sunday, the Jets are currently 3.5 point underdogs at home to the Miami Dolphins. Miami is just 3-7 with the 24th overall defense in terms of points allowed. Perhaps, Joe Flacco follows in the footsteps of Mike White and Josh Johnson before him and throws for a ton of yardage against the team that allows the fifth-most passing yards in the league. It’s been a weird year for the Jets, would you put it past anybody?

The Jets will wait another week to bring back the second overall pick in Zach Wilson. In Week 12, New York takes on the Houston Texans.
