6. The NY Jets had some questionable personnel decisions on offense

For as much good as there was on offense (aside from the play of Wilson), there are still plenty of questions to go around about the Jets' personnel usage.

This extends beyond the expected decision to make Denzel Mims a healthy inactive too. Despite being active, Keelan Cole was nowhere to be found for most of the game.

While he did still register a few offensive snaps, he wasn't targeted a single time. Instead, players like Jeff Smith and even Ryan Griffin lined up out wide in crucial third-down situations.

Braxton Berrios is the Jets' leading receiver through two games. Mims can't sniff the field. And guys like Griffin and Smith are being targeted more than Cole.

What exactly are we doing here? The Jets should play their best players, and that seemingly hasn't happened to this point.

7. The NY Jets pass rush impressed in the first half

The Jets pass rush came alive in the second half of Week 1, and they carried over that momentum in the first half of this Sunday's game.

The Jets registered three sacks in the first half with Marcus Maye, John Franklin-Myers, and Sheldon Rankins all getting to Mac Jones once.

Maye came screaming around the edge for a sack in the first quarter before Franklin-Myers and Rankins followed suit with two sacks on the same series a little later.

Franklin-Myers continued his excellent start to the season as he's looked like one of the Jets' best overall players to this point.

It would have been nice to see them keep bringing the pressure in the second half and the Jets still want to see more from Quinnen Williams, but there were certainly some positive takeaways from the pass rush in Week 2.
