How to explain Jets' surge on offense? QB change among top factors

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The quarterback went out, the playcaller went up and the offense went off.

The New York Jets, three-and-out kings over their first six games, produced 64 points and 997 total yards in Weeks 8 and 9, fueling debate on why they have morphed into, you know, a functional NFL offense.

Are they better without rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, who missed the past two games with a knee injury? Is offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur, now working from the coaches' booth, smarter at a higher elevation?

Football rarely is a "one-answer-fits-all" sport.
