Wilson To Sit Sunday & Questions Remain on Health of Bears Justin Fields


The Bears and Jets meet Sunday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, but as of Tuesday, neither team was sure who will start at quarterback. Wednesday, word out of Jets camp was that Zach Wilson will not be their starter under center Sunday.

As Mitch Moss and Pauly Howard discussed on VSiN’s “Follow the Money,” Tuesday, both teams' quarterback decisions have oddsmakers waiting and bettors guessing. At DraftKings, the odds moved a number of times Monday.  As of Tuesday evening, the Jets were 4.5 point home favorites with the total set at 39.5.  Monday, the spread moved from -4 to -6, then back to -4.5 at DraftKings. Following the news that Wilsonwon't start for the Jets, DraftKings line was Jets -5 and the total was raised to 40.5 meaning oddsmakers believe the Jets will be better with Wilson sitting out.


Bears Fields Injured, Jets Wilson Ineffective


Bears QB Justin Fields injured his non-throwing, left shoulder in Sunday’s game.  First though, Fields tied Kyler Murray’s NFL record by passing and rushing for a touchdown for the 5th consecutive game.  However, he left the field on a cart with his shoulder in pain and his hamstrings reportedly tightening after carrying the ball 18 times for 89 yards in a 27-24 loss to the Falcons.

Jets quarterback Zach Wilson was 9/22 for 77 yards Sunday in an important divisional loss to the Patriots.  On the season, Wilson is 35th out of 36 NFL signal callers in QBR.  Mike White will get the start for the Jets. This season, White hasn't thrown a pass in a regular season game. Last season, he played in 4 games for the Jets, starting 3, completing 66.7% of his passes with 5 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.
