On a cool Sunday afternoon in Wisconsin, the Green Bay Packers welcomed the NY Jets to Lambeau Field. While this game seemed like a mismatch on paper, an upset was very possible for the Jets, and that's exactly what happened.

Although it wasn't the prettiest game on offense, the Jets' defense showed up and showed out on Sunday. In the second half, the offense came alive and put the game out of reach.

At the end of the day, the Jets got the job done in Lambeau and beat the Packers, 24-10. Here are three players who led the team to victory.

3. Sauce Gardner, CB, NY Jets

Since being drafted by the Jets, Sauce Gardner has been making a name for himself in the NFL, and Sunday was no different.

Heading into the game, Gardner was already someone who opposing quarterbacks were beginning to fear, and rightfully so. However, this was his first true test going up against one of the greats in Aaron Rodgers.

Gardner was incredible on Sunday. He played so well that many analysts were calling Sunday's game his best yet. Gardner picked up three solo tackles and just completely locked down the Packers' receiving group. The rookie also had two passes defended and wreaked havoc in the Jets' secondary.

2. Breece Hall, RB, NY Jets

Breece Hall is starting to show up on this list every week, and it's easy to see why. Since being drafted by the Jets in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Jets organization and Gang Green faithful knew he would be special. However, I don't know if anyone knew just how quickly he would be this good.

Entering the week, Hall had 159 rushing yards on 36 attempts as well as 15 receptions for 208 yards. Hall continued to be one of the Jets' strongest offensive playmakers. Much like every other game, Hall made his presence felt every time he stepped onto the field with strong runs and explosive plays.

Sunday was not much different. Hall finished the game with 116 yards on 20 attempts and two receptions for five yards. Hall also picked up a big 34-yard rushing touchdown to extend the Jets' lead to 24-10. This essentially put the game away early in the fourth quarter and secured the victory.

1. Quinnen Williams, DT, NY Jets

Was there any doubt about who number one would be this week? While there were a lot of players who played well on Sunday, perhaps none played better than the 6-foot-3 monster of a man, Quinnen Williams.

Williams has long been one of the best players on the Jets' roster. On Sunday, he proved that he was one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL.

Williams finished the game with five total tackles as well as two sacks on Aaron Rodgers. He also pressured Rodgers into making a lot of bad passes and got some good pressure on the future Hall of Fame quarterback.
