WARE, England (AP) — Zach Wilson was a star improvisational quarterback last Sunday.

This week, he’s back to basics.

Coming off a 27-24 win in overtime against the Tennessee Titans, the Jets hope their rookie quarterback can carry over his success to Sunday when they face the Atlanta Falcons in London.

Wilson says, “You find what things you can still improve on — good or bad plays.” There were plenty of good ones in their win over the Titans like the 53-yard scoring strike to Corey Davis in the fourth quarter.

The rookie quarterback finished the game 21/34 passing for 297 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He was named the NFL’s Rookie of the Week for the performance.

But Wilson says he was working this week on incremental improvements in hopes of avoiding complacency.

The Jets own a record of 1-3 on the season.

New York’s next game is against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, October 10 at 7:30 a.m. (MDT). The game will be televised on the NFL Network.
