SALT LAKE CITY – New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson surprised his offensive line with some special gifts for the holidays ahead of the team’s Week 16 game.

On Wednesday, December 21, a day before New York’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the former BYU star presented members of the Jets’ offensive line with a motorized scooter.

Jets guard Nate Herbig shared a video of Wilson gifting the scooters at the franchise’s facilities on his Instagram account.

In a post by the @dumberscooters account, some of the offensive lineman were recorded driving the scooters around the artificial turf in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Following his rookie season a year ago, Wilson gifted his offensive line a pair of round-trip airline tickets.

“Trying to take care of the O-line this year. Thanking them for protecting me,” the former BYU QB said in a video shared to his Twitter account in January. “I hope those guys enjoy it. I really appreciate them, you know, taking care of me.”

Wilson is coming off his first start since being benched in favor of Mike White in November. The Jets fell to the Detroit Lions in a close game in Week 15. However, Jets head coach Robert Saleh praised Wilson’s play after the game.

“I thought he played well,” Saleh said of Wilson. “Moved the ball, created explosive plays.”

Wilson finished the game 18/35 passing for 317 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. The second-year quarterback also ran the ball three times for seven yards. He was sacked four times.

New York’s next game is at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, December 22 at 6:15 p.m. (MDT). The game will be broadcast on Prime Video.

The Jets enter the game with a 7-7 record. Jacksonville won in Week 15 and sits at 6-8 this season.

About Zach Wilson

Before his time in the NFL, the Corner Canyon High School product had a standout career at BYU. Wilson helped the Cougars to an 11-1 record during his final season in Provo.

During Wilson’s rookie campaign last season, the former BYU standout missed four games because of a knee injury and threw for 2,334 yards, nine touchdowns, and 11 interceptions with a 55.6 completion rate.

The former BYU star underwent surgery in August after suffering a knee injury in New York’s preseason opener. He also suffered a knee injury last season as a rookie.

Without Wilson, the Jets opened the 2022 season with a 1-2 record. After returning, the Jets posted a 5-2 record with Wilson starting.

The BYU great was benched following a loss in November to the New England Patriots and was inactive for three games.
