QUOTABLE

"He is an absolute pain in the [expletive]. He’s got speed and athleticism, but he’s got a competitiveness to him. He embodies ‘be at your best when your best is required.’ He’s a guy that when you need to move the sticks, he moves the sticks. Arm is definitely a threat. Legs are just as much of a threat. He’s the true dual-threat type of guy."

— Jets defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich on Texans QB Tyrod Taylor.

INTANGIBLES

Zach Wilson has to take care of the football in his return. The Texans have 10 takeaways the last two games and are tied for fourth with 13 interceptions. The Jets have thrown the most interceptions (18), led by Wilson’s nine.
