The New York Jets have come alive after a slow start, winning three straight games to improve to 4-2.

Their latest victory was a 27-10 rout of the Packers in Green Bay, with defensive lineman Quinnen Williams leading the way. For his efforts, Williams was awarded AFC Defensive Player of the Week on Wednesday

Williams played a huge part in keeping Aaron Rodgers and co. in check. He seemed to be constantly disrupting the pocket and making plays, finishing with 5 tackles (including 2 for a loss), 3 QB hits, 2.0 sacks and a forced fumble.

The third overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft has lived up to the hype this year, recording 5.0 sacks, 22 tackles and 11 QB hits across six games. He's helped anchor an improved defense that's allowed just 15.7 points per game during its three-game winning streak.

Williams and the Jets will stay on the road in Week 7 for what's shaping up to be a fantastic defensive matchup in Denver. The Broncos are currently favored by 1 point at home on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds as they try to snap New York's win streak on Sunday.
