Jets-Texans highlights: Defense leads victory in Zach Wilson’s return

Everything’s bigger in Texas .. .including, apparently, the offensive struggles.

The New York Jets and Houston Texans engaged in a defensive battle on Sunday afternoon at NRG Stadium, but the metropolitan visitors prevailed in an 21-14 decision. New York (3-8) earned only 264 yards of offense but managed to eke out a victory in Zach Wilson’s first appearance since Oct. 24.

Houston appeared to spell doom for the Jets’ defense early on, going 62 yards on 12 plays on their opening drive before John Franklin-Myers shut down any scoring throughs with a tip and turnover of a Tyrod Taylor pass.
