HC Robert Saleh announced Wednesday that Trevor Siemian will start at QB for the Jets when they meet the Patriots in their regular season finale Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
Appearing in four games this season for the Green & White, Siemian will make his third consecutive start. He has completed 58.6% of his passes for 654 yards with 2 TDs and 4 INTs. In his most recent outing against the Browns, Siemian hit on 71.1% of his throws for 261 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.
Rejoining the Jets for a second stint in September, Siemian was signed to the team's practice squad and then elevated to the active roster on Nov. 21. He made relief appearances against the Falcons and Dolphins and then stepped into the starter's role when Zach Wilson did not clear conclusion protocol following the Jets' Week 15 loss at Miami.
After Aaron Rodgers sustained a torn Achilles early in the season-opener against the Bills, Wilson came in and guided the offense for 9+games. Tim Boyle started the Jets' Week 12 and 13 contests vs. the Dolphins and Falcons before Wilson returned to the starter's role in Week 14 vs. the Texans. Sunday's contest will mark Siemian's 33rd career start and 4th with the Jets.
