The NY Jets have stumbled out of the starting gate on their way to an 0-3 record. It's not necessarily their winless record that has fans concerned, it's more in the way that they've lost those games.

The Jets have been outscored 46-3 in the first half of their three games. They're averaging just over six points per game and haven't scored a touchdown since Week 1.

That's not competitive football, and that's really all fans were asking for.

But we can go on about the ineptitude of the Jets offense. We can sit here and rehash everything that is currently wrong with the organization. And I'm sure we'll do plenty of that as the season goes on.

But for just a moment, why not sprinkle in a little positivity?

Despite the team's struggles, there have been a number of players who have stood out through three games. Most of them have come on defense as the Jets have managed to overachieve on that side of the ball.

The Jets currently rank 10th in total defense. And given all the questions about their secondary and pass rush following the loss of Carl Lawson, that's quite the achievement.

Pro Football Focus grades never tell the whole story, but they do provide a basis for which players are performing well and which are falling short of expectations.

Today, let's take a look at the five highest-graded players on the Jets roster through three weeks. Only players who have played enough snaps to qualify will be considered.
