Mike White, the Jets’ quarterback, has been honored by the NFL for his historic performance.

This past Sunday, it felt as if New York Jets fans were in another world.

Due to an injury, they were forced to start Mike White at quarterback, and they seemed to cross their fingers and hope for the best.

What happened over the weekend could only be described as something out of a Hollywood movie.

Zach Wilson is out with a PCL strain, but the team is optimistic that he will be able to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.

Head coach Robert Saleh said he’ll be able to practice “at the absolute least” that week, and that’s one of the main reasons he wasn’t placed on injured reserve, which would have left him ineligible to practice during Buffalo week.
