You'd be hard-pressed to find a player on the NY Jets roster performing at a higher level than linebacker Quincy Williams has over the first five weeks of the season.

Williams has legitimately been one of the NFL's best linebackers this year, and his performance in the Jets' 31-21 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday was further proof of that.

Williams became the first player in Jets history to record nine or more tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, a tackle for loss, and three QB hits in one game. This marked the second consecutive week that Williams finished with at least nine tackles, one tackle for loss, and one QB hit.

Williams is playing at an All-Pro level through the first five weeks of the season and is genuinely one of the best players on the roster right now. Give the man his flowers because he deserves them.

Mark Sanchez will call the Jets game on Sunday

An old friend will be calling the upcoming game between the Jets and Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday as former quarterback Mark Sanchez will team up with Kevin Kugler to call the game for Fox in Week 6.

This is the first time that Sanchez, who has worked for Fox since 2021, will be on the call for a Jets game. The former first-round pick famously played four seasons with the team from 2009-2012, helping lead the team to consecutive AFC Championship Game appearances.

Sanchez is no stranger to the Eagles, either, having spent two seasons in Philadelphia after leaving the Jets in 2012. He started 10 games over two years with the Eagles, throwing 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

The Jets enter Sunday's game with an 0-12 all-time record against the Eagles. Perhaps Sanchez could provide his former team with a little luck this weekend.

Breece Hall is historically dominant

Just how good is Jets running back Breece Hall? The answer is historically good.

Following Hall's career game against the Denver Broncos in Week 5, in which he totaled a whopping 177 yards on the ground, the former Iowa State star now boasts a career yards per carry of 6.3.

Not only is that the best in Jets history (min. 100 carries), but it's also the highest YPC of any NFL player through the first 12 games of their career since at least 1970. That's tied with NFL Hall of Famer Franco Harris and slightly ahead of the likes of Adrian Peterson and Bo Jackson.

Few running backs in NFL history have been this good this quickly. Hall has been unprecedently dominant to start his NFL career, especially when you consider he's less than 12 months removed from a torn ACL.

The Jets have a special talent in Hall.
