The New York Jets Run Defense is on Fire

The Jets traded Leonard Williams to the Giants for a third and a conditional fifth prior to their game against the Dolphins. At that point in the year, the Jets had been allowing 94.9 yards per game and 3.3 yards per carry.

That’s good, it’s one of the best in football, but it wasn’t as good as it could be. Since the Jets traded Leonard Williams they have played three games. In those games, the Jets are allowing just 42.3 rushing yards per game and 2.1 yards per carry.

That’s an insanely good rush defense. That hasn’t come against easy rushing attacks either.
