New York Jets Named NFL’s Best Team In This Vital Area

As the New York Jets prepare for the 2024 NFL season, one key area of their defense was named the best in the league.

The Jets are heading into the year with a lot of promise after falling short of high expectations in 2023. While there was a lot of bad for the Jets last year, their was also some real bright spots on the defensive side of the ball.

New York’s offense was miserable throughout most of the campaign last season, but its defense was Super Bowl-caliber for nearly the entire year. T

The Jets’ defense kept them in a lot of games in 2023 and was the primary reason why the team managed to win seven games, as Gang Green has a lot of talent on all three levels.

Recently, Pro Football Focus ranked the best defensive lines in the NFL. In their rankings, they had the Jets ranked 1st.

Here’s what they had to say.

The Jets have a fearsome defensive line, even with a couple of offseason departures in the form of John Franklin-Myers and Bryce Huff. Those were offset at least in part by acquiring Haason Reddick, and could be entirely eclipsed if Jermaine Johnson and Will McDonald IV take steps forward.

Quinnen Williams is one of the best and most disruptive defensive linemen in the game, making the Jets as good as it gets on the defensive line.

Seeing the Jets come in ranked No. 1 should cause a lot of optimism for the franchise.

Obviously, the Jets have had some tough years in recent memory, as they haven’t made the playoffs since the 2010-11 campaign. That represents the longest active drought in the NFL.

However, this seems to be the year that if they can stay healthy, that streak can be snapped.

In terms of the defensive line for the Jets, there is a lot to like. Quinnen Williams is one of the best defensive lineman in the entire NFL, as he is good against both the run and the pass. Williams might not get the national attention like a Sauce Gardner does in the secondary, but he is every bit as good at his position.

With Williams anchoring the middle, he’s got some talented players around him in Haason Reddick, Jermaine Johnson and Will McDonald.

As mentioned, the Jets did retool their defensive line a bit, but this is still a very talented unit overall. Johnson will certainly be a player to keep an eye on, as the former first-round pick looks to continue to improve and get better as a pass-rusher.

With getting after the quarterback being so important, having a great defensive line like the Jets do is a big luxury.
