2. NY Jets DE John Franklin-Myers earned every penny of his extension
John Franklin-Myers had a few quiet weeks since signing his four-year, $55 million extension earlier this year. He was still an effective player, but the flashy stats weren't there.
That changed on Sunday.
Franklin-Myers was a menace in Week 12 intercepting his own deflection and recording a pair of sacks to go along with a tackle for loss and an additional QB hit.
The former waiver-wire pickup was one of the Jets' best players on either side of the ball and his performance might have single-handedly led the team to victory.
3. Bryce Hall's up-and-down day for the NY Jets
Bryce Hall has been one of the Jets' most consistent players on either side of the ball this season. But he had what was likely his worst game of the year on Sunday.
The second-year cornerback was beaten on a number of occasions early in the game including a 40-yard bomb to Brandin Cooks in the first half that gave the Texans a 7-3 lead.
But when it mattered most, Hall stepped up. With the game on the line, Hall made a crucial deflection on fourth down late in the fourth quarter to seal the game for the Jets.
It was hardly a perfect game, but Hall came through in the clutch.
