Offensive spotlight: Joe Burrow was under pressure a lot in this game, continuing a trend from the first two contests of the season, but this time he was able to make plays regardless. He completed 23 of 36 pass attempts and recorded a 73.5% adjusted completion rate.

Defensive spotlight: Jets rookie Sauce Gardner had an eventful day that saw him give up some critical plays but also break up two passes thrown into his coverage — including a deep shot to Ja’Marr Chase down the sideline.

Rookie spotlight: Garrett Wilson is already a critical receiver for the New York Jets' offense. He took a shot to the midsection that put him out of the game briefly, but in total he caught five of seven targets for 61 yards, including three first downs.

Offensive line spotlight: Cincinnati’s offensive line was again under siege despite no superstar pass-rusher of the caliber of T.J. Watt or Micah Parsons this week. All five starters allowed multiple pressures, and Burrow had his work cut out to make plays in spite of all of the heat in the backfield.
