Where was Quinnen Williams?

The Jets pass rush picked things up in the second half, but the interior of the defensive line struggled to get going early on. That was especially concerning given that they were going up against an extremely weak Panthers' interior offensive line.

John Franklin-Myers made some plays. Folorunso Fatukasi had his moments. But Quinnen Williams was nowhere to be found.

Williams finished with a trio of assisted tackles and had one notable QB hit. But given that he was up against the likes of Pat Elflein and Dennis Daley, it was a concerningly slow start.

It is important to remember that Williams was sidelined this summer with a foot injury. But the Jets would have liked a better start given who his opposition was.

The Zach Wilson/Corey Davis connection

Wilson has a favorite target. And it's the player who we saw him connect with a number of times in the preseason.

Corey Davis was the Jets' best offensive playmaker in Week 1 as he finished with five catches for 97 yards and two touchdowns.

With all the talk about Elijah Moore this summer, it's clear that Davis is Wilson's preferred target and the No. 1 option in the Jets' offense.
