Wilson discussed the losing streak during an appearance on ESPN New York’s “Bart & Hahn” show which is one of the more popular sports talk podcasts and radio shows. The Jets are preparing to take on the Patriots Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
“It’s time that things change around here,” Wilson said, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini. “I don’t like talking about it too much, but this is one of the first steps. Fourteen straight is unacceptable. That’s unacceptable. I’m 0-2 against them. That’s unacceptable.”
“I inherited — I walked into a team that, we haven’t beaten the Patriots,” he continued. “I feel like that’s why they brought me here, brought me and Sauce [Gardner] here and the guys here — to make things like that change. It’s time we do what we get paid for.”
Should the Patriots win again it would tie their longest win streak versus any single opponent in franchise history. It also would tie the NFL’s longest active winning streak against one opponent as the Kansas City Chiefs have won 15 games in a row against the Denver Broncos.
“It’ll fuel me throughout the week, honestly,” Wilson added.
