The Jets’ road to a postseason berth got some help this weekend — as the Bills and Dolphins both lost — and on Monday night, they’ll have a chance to assist their own cause.
Zach Wilson and the Jets will face Justin Herbert’s Chargers on “Monday Night Football,” with Gang Green looking to leave MetLife Stadium with a four-game winning streak.
The Jets’ offense certainly needed to improve after an ugly overtime victory against the Giants last week, but Wilson’s continued strides — as well as the emergence of Breece Hall — have been enough when paired with a productive defense.
Los Angeles struggled with four losses in six games to begin the season, but the Chargers pieced together a convincing 30-13 victory against the Bears in Week 8, when Herbert threw for 298 yards and three touchdowns.
They’ve lost wideout Mike Williams for the season due to injury, but Los Angeles still has a strong cast of offensive players surrounding Herbert in running back Austin Ekeler and wideout Keenan Allen.
