The NY Jets found a way to win ugly on Sunday defeating the Houston Texans by a final score of 24-14 to pick up their third victory of the season.

It wasn't always pretty. At times it was downright ugly. But the Jets won — and that's always a positive for a young team.

Zach Wilson returned from a month-long absence and had his fair share of struggles. But a standout performance from the Jets' defense carried them to victory.

Let's take a look at a few studs and duds from this week's game.

STUD: John Franklin-Myers, DE, NY Jets

On a day in which the offense struggled to put together consistent drives, the Jets' defense stepped up in a huge way. And no player did more than John Franklin-Myers.

Franklin-Myers put together a strong case for Defensive Player of the Week recording an interception on his own batted pass early in the first quarter to go along with two sacks, two tackles for loss, and two QB hits.

He became the first Jets player in 36 years to record two sacks and an interception in a game. The flashy plays haven't been there for Franklin-Myers over the last few weeks.

But on Sunday, he reminded everyone why the Jets handed him the four-year, $55 million extension they did. He earned every penny of it in Week 12.
