For those who live in Utah, you’re in luck. The Jets-Panthers game – former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson’s first in the NFL – will air in Utah, according to the TV coverage map. The game will also air in markets in New York and Charlotte and surrounding areas, as well as parts of Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming, according to 506 Sports.


For New York … The Jets are ushering in a new era with Wilson under center, having been caught with the No.2 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. New York has reshuffled its roster this offseason, adding several offensive skills players around Wilson.

For Caroline … The Panthers also have a new quarterback, and that’s Wilson’s New York predecessor – Sam Darnold. Darnold was traded to Carolina after three seasons with the Jets.


For New York … Wilson is one of five quarterbacks taken in the first round, and three of them will start Week 1, including Trevor Lawrence of Jacksonville and Mac Jones of New England.

“They don’t play against each other, do they? They’re on the same side of the ball for different teams, so they’re not really competing against each other. It’s about Zach, it’s about him, it’s about his process and it’s about him getting ready to play the best he can and obviously his surrounding teammates to do. their best and keep it in the moment, keep it about us and perform as best we can.
