Joe Flacco, QB (FA)

Named Week 3 starter

Flacco will make a third consecutive start Sunday against the Bengals, Connor Hughes of SportsNet New York reports.

Flacco's 307-yard, four-touchdown performance in New York's Week 2 win over the Browns wasn't enough to stir up a quarterback controversy, as the Jets still will turn back to second-year quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) once Wilson is healthy enough to play. Wilson is progressing well, but the team has already said he won't play against Cincinnati, and Flacco's most recent performance certainly was good enough to quiet any murmurs of the Jets turning to Mike White under center, so Flacco's set for another start.
