It was another quality game from the entire offensive line as a whole, allowing just two sacks and giving Wilson the time he needed to deliver the ball. I will also say that Wilson did a much better job throwing the ball quickly, helping the line look better than in weeks past.

The offensive line also produced 108 rushing yards on just 16 carries, good for 6.8 yards per carry out of the backfield.

Rookie Joe Tippmann finished the week as the highest-graded offensive lineman by PFF for week 4. He allowed only one pressure on 43 pass block snaps and managed to finish the week as the team's highest-graded run blocker as well.

For the year, Tippmann is now the 4th highest-graded guard to register at least 120 snaps, according to PFF, behind only Tyler Smith, Chris Lindstrom, and Zach Martin. Not bad for the rookie who came into the league as a center.

Vera-Tucker continues to show why he should be an All-Pro. After switching from guard to tackle for the second consecutive season, he ranks as the third-best run blocker amongst all offensive linemen in the NFL so far this year.

Through 143 pass block snaps at right tackle across both seasons, Vera-Tucker is yet to allow a sack and has only surrendered six pressures. Not bad for a guy playing out of position.

It should be no surprise that when running behind Vera-Tucker and Tippmann on the right side of the line, the Jets have been averaging over six yards per carry, including last night's 43-yard run. When Ruckert is lined up at tight end with them, it even gets better.

Grade: A
