DUD: Isaiah Dunn, CB, NY Jets

Undrafted rookie Isaiah Dunn got the start at cornerback in place of the injured Brandin Echols and his first career NFL start didn't exactly go as planned.

Dunn was beaten a number of times in coverage with his most glaring gaffe coming on a 65-yard Mack Hollins touchdown early in the third quarter.

It was a simple blown assignment from Dunn who bit on an underneath route and left his deep third uncovered allowing Hollins to burn the entire defense.

With Echols on IR, it will be interesting to see if the Jets give Dunn another chance or if they look for another temporary solution.

STUD: Quincy Williams

The Jets tried to replace Quincy Williams with Jarrad Davis once the 2021 free-agent addition returned from injury. But it quickly became apparent that Davis was a major downgrade.

For all of Williams' flaws as a player, it's impossible to argue that he's not incredibly fun to watch on a weekly basis. And on Sunday, he made his presence felt on a number of occasions.

We had his weekly attempted murder, his weekly tackle for loss, all the while finishing with a team-leading 15 total tackles. No other player on the Jets had more than eight.

While tackles are hardly the best indication of a player's performance, Williams was all over the field on Sunday and single handily salvaged the position once C.J. Mosley went out.

His brother, Quinnen Williams, deserves a shoutout too for his impressive performance, even if it won't show up on the box score.
