Protecting Zach Wilson better makes Jets' offensive line happy

The Jets’ offensive line is going into the bye week feeling much better about themselves than at the start of the season.

The front five faced plenty of criticism and scrutiny after Zach Wilson was sacked six times in Week 1 and nine more times over the next two games. But in the last two, Wilson has been sacked just three times.

Center Connor McGovern said the line is "communicating well" and "starting to flow together well" and they have as better understanding of where they need to be and when.

"It’s a pretty good feeling when you can look at the film and see some pretty good protection and you don’t have to help Zach off the ground very much," McGovern said.
