QB Zach Wilson selected No. 2 overall in NFL draft by New York Jets

Years from now, New York Jets fans might reminisce about this night and remember it as the moment everything changed for the better. Or perhaps they'll just recall the moment with a forced grin and yet another rueful shake of the head.

It all depends on what Zach Wilson and his new football team can do next.

The Jets on Thursday night made Wilson their quarterback of the future, selecting the former BYU star with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft. When Wilson walked across the stage in Cleveland and appeared with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, it put an end to months of speculation and uncertainty about the Jets' future and replaced it with a new reality.

Cow and alligator temporarily stop Houston traffic in separate incidents

Houston drivers have no need to go to the zoo when animals are on their morning commute. 

A cow and alligator slowed traffic down yesterday when they strolled onto the highway and a bridge, respectively, in separate incidents. 

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted that a livestock unit was on the way to Interstate 10 Wednesday morning after a cow was seen roaming the highway. 

He reported there may have been one related crash, but no injuries to the cow. The cow was rescued a short time later, and the owner was on scene, according to another tweet from Gonzalez.  

Drivers would be in for another surprise a few hours later with another animal stopping traffic — an alligator.

The alligator was loaded into a bed of a truck then released underneath the bridge, KTRK-TV reported.
