ESNY previews upcoming Week 14 Jets-Saints game at MetLife Stadium.

The Jet plane suffered a tough 33-18 loss to the Eagles against the Florham Park faithful last week.

However, one positive side of the whole failure is the reality Zach Wilson looks improved.

This was never supposed to be a season of Jets filled with sunshine and rainbows. But one of the main goals is to at least see the team’s rookie quarterback develop.

Wilson has thrown 226 yards (his third-highest total of the year) and completed 60.5% of his throws (his second-highest in 2021). If the first-round draft pick can use this performance as a stepping stone to further improvement, it’s crucial for a Jets team looking for momentum during this period.

A productive game for Zach could be on the way – the Saints have the 22nd best pass defense in the NFL (allowing 250.1 yards per game).

Player recommendation selection (DraftKings Sportsbook allowed)

Taysom Hill Under-196.5 Passing Yards (-115)

Throwing more than 196.5 yards is not an amazing feat.

But Taysom Hill is not a legit quarterback in this league – I don’t care what defence he’s facing.

The Jets are near the bottom of the NFL in pass protection (allowing 263.4 yards of passes per game). However, Hill is incorrect brave cat and the Saints will probably use the signal caller’s legs more than his arms.

Also, expect the Jet to cause pressure, which will make it a lot harder for Hill to succeed.

Jamison Crowder Over 52.5 Pick up yards (-115)

Decision experience Corey Davis’ season ended with core surgery.

Elijah Moore is also on the bench because of a quadriceps injury and will miss at least the next three games.

Therefore, if any Jets expansion should make for a remarkable performance on Sunday, it could be Jamison Crowder.

Davis and Moore’s absence will give Crowder an additional opportunity to produce at the receiving end.

Crowder surpassed this total last week, winning 62 yards in four catches against the Eagles.

Alvin Kamara over 68.5 dashes (-115)

The Saints can run the ball pretty much for a number of reasons.

First off, they’ll likely use a more run-based game plan with Taysom Hill underperformance.

And second, the defense of this Jets run was brutal. New York is 29th in the league with 133.4 yards of javelin allowed per game.

May Alvin Kamara have a big day on earth.

Players to see

Zach Wilson

One of the Jets’ main goals this season has been to get rookie defender Zach Wilson to develop over the course of the past year.

And while he’s mostly struggled, he looks to have improved against the Eagles last week, throwing 226 yards and a pair of points.

If the first-round draft selection continues to grow in the long run, it will give this group a certain amount of confidence heading into the 2022 campaign.

Can Zach pull off another promising performance against New Orleans?

Jamison Crowder

Like we said earlier, Jamison Crowder wide will earn some significant production opportunities in the injury-related absences of Corey Davis and Elijah Moore.

With those two expansion goals ignored, Zach Wilson will need his remaining targets, one of which is Crowder, to step up and play their part in the offensive game plan.

Crowder effectively countered Philly. Can he repeat that performance (or potentially improve it) in Week 14?

Jets Pass Rush

As we have mentioned many times, Taysom Hill is not the most efficient place to operate via air.

But any quarterback in this league can be successful given the necessary time to function in the pocket.

The Jets had to pressure Hill all day and force him to make mistakes, which he was very likely to do.

Robert Saleh and Jeff Ulbrich should definitely pressure Hill to pass down and send at least five defenders to the veteran in the process.
