The Patriots have won their last 14 meetings with the Jets, which dates all the back to December 2015.
While New York wide receiver Garrett Wilson is pretty new to the rivalry, he feels that Gang Green’s lack of success against New England is frustrating.
“It’s time that things change around here,” Wilson told the Bart & Hahn podcast, via ESPN’s Rich Cimini. “I don’t like talking about it too much, but this is one of the first steps. Fourteen straight is unacceptable. That’s unacceptable. I’m 0-2 against them. That’s unacceptable.”
Wilson entered the NFL as the 10th overall pick last season, so he does not have much experience against the Pats (or any other team, for that matter). But he wants to help usher in a new era for the Jets.
“I inherited — I walked into a team that, we haven’t beaten the Patriots,” Wilson said. “I feel like that’s why they brought me here, brought me and Sauce [Gardner] here and the guys here — to make things like that change. It’s time we do what we get paid for.”
Wilson, who played his collegiate football at Ohio State, made an immediate impact during his rookie campaign, hauling in 83 receptions for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns. Through two games this season, he has logged seven catches for 117 yards and a couple of scores.
New York entered 2023 with Super Bowl aspirations thanks to its acquisition of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, Rodgers tore his Achilles on the Jets’ first offensive series of Week 1, ending his season and thrusting struggling young signal-caller Zach Wilson back into the starting role.
Garrett Wilson was able to lead his team to a surprising Week 1 victory over the Buffalo Bills, but last week, the Jets were hammered by the Dallas Cowboys.
