NFL: New York Jets at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Zach Wilson built on his solid first preseason start with an impressive showing in his second outing. Zach played four series in the first half and finished 9-11 for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns. He was 2-2 on third down, both which resulted in first downs.

His first third down completion was this impressive 24-yard dart on third and eight. The Jets ended up with 3 points on the drive.

On a later drive, Wilson showed off his arm talent with this 27-yard strike to Corey Davis while rolling to his right.

That set up Zach’s touchdown pass on second and twelve a couple plays later.

Zach’s second TD pass was also to Kroft after a nice kick return.

Some national pundits chimed in after watching Zach’s performance.

This is just preseason, but overall a really encouraging performance from Zach. He made some really nice throws in key situations and received unanimously positive reviews. He was up to the number two trending Twitter topic in the US after his second TD pass.

The Jets have one more preseason game before opening the season September 12 versus the Carolina Panthers.
