The NY Jets are winless no more. For the first time in nearly two years, the Jets fan base has a victory they can be unanimously happy about.

It wasn't perfect. It wasn't always pretty. But the Jets beat a competent Tennessee Titans team on the heels of an outstanding defensive performance and the emergence of their rookie quarterback.

And isn't that all Jets fans wanted out of this season anyway?

Zach Wilson showed flashes of the player the Jets took second overall. Robert Saleh earned his first victory as a head coach. The defense shined with numerous young players taking center stage.

It was a complete team victory for the youngest roster in the NFL. And it felt damn good for it to take place in front of a rocking home crowd at MetLife Stadium.

After a downright awful showing in Weeks 2 and 3, the Jets limped into their Week 4 matchup with the Titans looking for some semblance of competitiveness. Again, it wasn't always there.

The Jets' offense stumbled out of the gate hinting at further incompetence. But Wilson and the offense took over and put together a 11-play, 75-yard drive early in the second quarter to change the momentum of the game.

That momentum carried over into the second half following a 54-yard bomb to Keelan Cole on the second drive of the third quarter, officially giving the Jets their first lead of the season after a 27-yard Matt Ammendola field goal.

It was one of at least three eye-popping throws that Wilson made on Sunday. The type of throws that only a handful of human beings on this planet can make.

With a "1" now firmly in the win column, let's take a look at a few brief takeaways from the Jets first victory of the season.
