Joe Flacco will start for Jets in Week 11 against Dolphins

Mike White, the sensation just three games ago, was benched after a terrible outing against the Bills last week; Zach Wilson remains injured

FLORHAM PARK – Joe flacco will start as a starting quarterback for the New York Jets Sunday at home in front of Miami dolphins.

The head coach Robert Saleh made the surprise announcement Wednesday, with the team determined to opt for the 36-year-old veteran over Mike white, who started the past three games in place of the injured rookie Zach Wilson.

Wilson, selected second overall in the last draft, suffered a sprain in the posterior collateral ligament of the right knee in front of the New England Patriots on October 24, and he’s still not 100 percent.

Saleh said that the Jets they believe that the experience of Flacco will give the team the best chance of winning against the aggressive defense of Miami. White will act as a substitute for Flacco on Sunday.

Instead of Wilson, White had a remarkable first start of NFL in a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, throwing for 405 yards and three touchdowns, and setting a league record for a player in his first start as a starter with 37 completions. That performance led to White and the game ball to the Professional Football Hall of Fame on Canton, Ohio.

It lasted just a quarter in the following week against the Indianapolis Colts, from an injured nerve in his throwing hand. White suffered last Sunday in a 45-17 loss to the Buffalo bills, throwing four interceptions.

TO White they blew him out of the air towards the end of the game, and he was replaced by Flacco in the last possession of the Jets, completing 3 of 3 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown pass, the 225th of his career.

The Jets they acquired Flacco via exchange of the Philadelphia Eagles on October 25, sending a conditional sixth-round pick to the Eagles by the veteran. Spent last season in New York as a substitute for Sam darnold, and started four games. Flacco signed with Philadelphia as a free agent on offseason, but did not play for the Eagles as a reserve of Jalen hurts.
