Zach Wilson QB vs. Josh Allen QB
Zach Wilson has had an up and down season. With only 59.8% completion rate and more interceptions (6) than touchdowns (5), Wilson has experienced his share of difficulties; yet his ability to extend plays using mobility keeps the Jets’ offense unpredictable and occasionally potent.
On the contrary, Josh Allen has been impressive for the Bills. His 71.3% completion rate, 2423 passing yards and 18 touchdowns to 9 interceptions ratio are all hallmarks of success as an efficient and effective leader on the field. Furthermore, Allen’s dual-threat capability – indicated by his yards per pass attempt (7.5) and passer rating (99.56) numbers – make him an unparalleled threat to any defense in which they face him.
