The Jets got a win Sunday in Zach Wilson’s return game, and no one was more excited about the victory than the quarterback’s girlfriend, Abbey Gile.
Taking to Instagram, Gile re-shared a message from the Jets’ account that celebrated the team’s 21-14 win over the Texans. She also congratulated Wilson, 22, on his NFL milestone from Sunday’s game.
“First career rushing TD,” Gile posted to her Story.
Wilson finished the day with 145 passing yards, a rushing touchdown and one interception. The Jets improved to 3-8 on the season.
The second-overall pick in this year’s draft, Wilson had missed the past month after injuring his knee in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Patriots. Earlier this week, Wilson told the media that he was ready to make some changes for Sunday.
“Play fast,” Wilson said. “Play with my natural feel that I was given to play within the structure of the offense, and let my playmakers make plays.”
The Jets will return to MetLife next weekend when they face the Eagles (5-7), who lost to the Giants on Sunday afternoon.
As for Gile, who has been linked to Wilson since they were teens, she previously celebrated the rookie’s first-ever NFL win in October, after the Jets defeated the Titans in Week 4.
“Got the W,” Gile wrote on Instagram at the time. “Always proud of him.”
