1. Zach Wilson has arrived

We briefly touched on it a moment ago, but Sunday was officially Zach Wilson's coming-out party. Yes, there were a few key misses. Yes, Wilson had a chance to put the game away on a number of occasions and failed.

But he also showed flashes of brilliance and reminded everyone why he was drafted second overall this past April. The Jets saw the BYU version of Zach Wilson on Sunday.

The improvisation, the gun-slinger mentality, and, of course, the occasional misfires. It was all there. Wilson was far from perfect, but he made plays that only the NFL's elite can dream to make.

His ceiling is as high as any quarterback in the league. Consistency is the next step, but for now, the Jets were sure happy to see the flashes on Sunday.

2. Corey Davis revenge game

Much like Wilson and the offense, Corey Davis' day didn't get off to the best of starts. He dropped his first target of the game on a key 2nd-and-long play that would have netted a first down.

He later slipped on his route resulting in a Zach Wilson interception. But Davis wasn't going to let his day be defined by early miscues. Especially not with revenge on his mind.

The former fifth overall pick would go on to haul in four catches for a team-leading 111 yards including a fantastic catch on Wilson's 53-yard heave in the third quarter.

Davis stepped up when it mattered most. And he did so against the team that didn't even extend him an offer to return in the offseason.

There's a reason Jets head coach Robert Saleh gave Davis the game ball in the locker room. This win meant as much to him as anyone on the roster.
