6. Mike White, QB, NY Jets

Mike White was the best quarterback in Saturday's game not named Zach Wilson. Not that that's saying very much as Giants starter Daniel Jones sat out, but it is still noteworthy.

White didn't do anything particularly incredible, but he was efficient and didn't make many mistakes. The former fifth-round pick finished 13-of-19 for 127 yards and looked like a capable NFL backup.

He outplayed James Morgan, his biggest competitor for the Jets' backup quarterback job. And he looked much better than both Giants quarterbacks, Mike Glennon and Clayton Thorson.

The Jets could still consider adding a more experienced backup, but White is proving that he might just be a viable option after all.

5. Corey Davis, WR, NY Jets

Corey Davis didn't light up the stat sheet on Saturday. But it became clear early on that Zach Wilson was more than willing to look the way of his new No. 1 wide receiver.

Wilson targeted Davis four times on just two drives with the pair hooking up for two catches and 18 yards. Modest numbers, but it's apparent that the two are building chemistry with one another.

The Jets signed Davis to a three-year, $37.5 million contract with the expectation that he would be the team's de facto top wideout.

For that to happen, he'll need to continue establishing chemistry with the man who will be throwing him the ball. Saturday showed that they're off to a good start.
