White threw for 405 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-31 comeback win. The Jets were down by 11 in the fourth quarter, but then a pair of touchdown passes along with a Philly Special two-point conversion gave the Jets the three-point lead in the final minutes.
It’s unclear how much longer White will be in his glory — Zach Wilson will be returning from injury at some point. Regardless, this current era continues Thursday night against the Indianapolis Colts.
If White constructs another impressive performance against Indy, will there be some sort of quarterback controversy?
