The New York Jets' defense held an opponent without multiple touchdowns for the second consecutive week, spearheading the team's 16-9 victory over the Denver Broncos.

Offensive spotlight: Denver's Jerry Jeudy collected seven receptions on 11 targets for four first downs and three explosive plays. If grades stand, it would be his first 70.0-plus receiving game grade this year (73.1) on a season-high 45 snaps.

Defensive spotlight: Broncos edge defender Bradley Chubb reeled in two run stops and a tackle for loss to complete a 90.2 grade in run defense, pending review. It would mark the second consecutive 80.0-plus run-defense grade in as many weeks for the fifth-year vet if it holds following grade reviews.

Rookie spotlight: Sauce Gardner was targeted nine times in coverage and allowed less than 20 yards from four receptions. The Jets' CB1 finished with more forced incompletions (3) than touchdowns and first downs allowed (0).

Offensive line spotlight: Second-year pro Alijah Vera-Tucker was on the field for just 11 of the Jets' 26 pass attempts. During his available time, he allowed zero pressures for the second time in three weeks and finished with a 79.2 pass-blocking grade on first review.
