Zach Wilson Odds to be Next Starting Quarterback Benched at -175

Jets starting quarterback Zach Wilson will be the starter no more it appears.  At least that's what our friends at SportsBetting.ag believe.  They are listing Wilson as the next starting QB to be benched at -175 odds, nearly six points greater than the next shortest odds (belonging to the Houston Texans Davis Mills).

A win over New England would have moved the Jets into first place in the AFC East.  They haven't been there this late in the season in twelve years. And just like that, the Jets move to the bottom of the division.

Wilson threw for just 77 yards on 9-for-22 passing. He also ran for a team-high 26 yards.  His effort overall was lackluster at best.

“It was a frustrating day,” said Wilson, who quickly replied, “No” when asked if he and the offense let the defense down.


Fans want seasoned veteran quarterback Joe Flacco to replace Wilson.

Interestingly, perhaps a bit tongue-in-cheek, Kirk Cousins and Aaron Rodgers are longshots on the list following dismal performances in Week 11.

Next Quarterback Benched (non-injury related)

Zach Wilson                  -175

Davis Mills                    +400

Marcus Mariota            +500

Andy Dalton                  +900

Trevor Lawrence           +1200

Kenny Pickett                +1600

Russell Wilson               +1600

Kirk Cousins                  +3300

Aaron Rodgers              +10000

Heading into the 2022 NFL season, Wilson didn't even make the list of odds for the first NFL quarterback to be benched in 2022. Starting quarterback for that other New York Team, the Giants, Daniel Jones, had the 3rd shortest odds and he's carried his team to a 7-3 record so far.

First QB Benched Odds

Mitch Trubisky            3-1

Baker Mayfield            6-1

Daniel Jones                6-1

Davis Mills                   7-1

Carson Wentz             9-1

Marcus Mariota          9-1

Geno Smith                 10-1

Trey Lance                   10-1

Jameis Winston           12-1

Jared Goff                   12-1

Justin Fields                14-1

Ryan Tannehill            14-1

Tua Tagovailoa            16-1

Jalen Hurts                  25-1
