New York Jets players were informed Thursday morning in a team meeting that Zach Wilson is not starting Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, sources told ESPN.

Wilson went 5-2 as the Jets' starting quarterback this season. Those two losses came against the New England Patriots, when the Jets offense scored just two touchdowns in the two games.

The Jets (6-4), hoping to end an 11-year playoff drought, have shifted into a win-now mode. They believe their defense is championship caliber and don't want to waste this opportunity because of erratic quarterback play.

Wilson passed for a career-low 77 yards in last week's loss to the New England Patriots and created a firestorm by refusing to take any blame for the dismal showing by the offense.
