The NY Jets managed to score a 21-14 victory over the Houston Texans in Week 12 despite some lackluster play from quarterback Zach Wilson.

Both teams entered the game with a 2-8 record looking to win their third game of the season, albeit at the expense of draft position. The Jets were the ones who ended up on top on the back of an excellent defensive performance.

The Jets' pass rush had their most productive game since Week 4 finishing with five total sacks. John Franklin-Myers wreaked havoc, Quinnen and Quincy Williams continued their recent string of fantastic play, and even Ronnie Blair got involved for a sack.

Meanwhile, although Wilson had his fair share of struggles, it wasn't all bad for the offense. The running game was the crux of the Jets' offensive attack with the team averaging a highly-efficient 4.6 yards per carry on the day.

At the end of the day, a win is a win. Wilson may have played poorly, but he and the team did just enough to best their opponents.

But rather than rehashing the box score, we could always do a little bit more of a deep dive into the analytics. That's what we're about to do right now.

Let's take a look at three interesting stats from the Jets' Week 12 win over the Texans.
