Mac Jones and Zach Wilson are going to see a lot of each other over their respective careers in New England and New York. And though there’s a small sample size, so far the matchup has gone squarely in Jones’ favor.
The Patriots beat the Jets 25-6 in Week 2 and are set up for a rematch here in Week 7. In the first meeting between the two, Jones far outperformed Wilson by simply being pedestrian. Jones was 22-for-30 with 186 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions.

Wilson, meanwhile was 19-for-33 with 210 yards but threw four interceptions and was sacked twice. Wilson’s first game against the Patriots has been indicative of much of the Jets’ offensive season to date.
The Jets currently rank last in points scored and 31st in total yards while Wilson leads the NFL with nine interceptions through his first six games. Defensively, they’re middle-of-the-road in terms of yards and points allowed but also don’t have an interception yet through six games.
The Patriots boast one of the best pass defenses, which makes sense given Wilson’s four interception game against them earlier this season. They’ve also defended the run well, though not as stoutly, meaning the Jets will need to be perfect in nearly every aspect to pull off the upset.

At 2-4, the Patriots sit in second in the AFC East while the Jets are third at 1-4. A win for the Pats firms up their second place position, while a Jets win propels them to second place.
