New York Jets star defensive tackle, Quinnen Williams, continued his All-Pro level play for this elite, fourth-ranked defense in Week 13.

On the year, Williams now has nine sacks, 10 tackles for loss, and 21 quarterback hits. He is on pace for 12 sacks and 29 quarterback hits. The prime type of breakout most Jets fans had envisioned from Williams in year four.

New York Jets Film Room: Quinnen Williams:

On this first play, Williams lines up from the 2i Tech and makes a run stop. He wastes no time applying his hands against his block. Williams remains low out of his stance, winning the pad-level battle at the point of contact.

He does a tremendous job while operating laterally of moving his head and locating the runner. Thanks to sound hand technique paired with lower body strength, Williams throws off his blocker and plugs the run.

Williams generates a late pressure that nearly causes a fumble from the 3-Tech here. The Jets scheme up some confusion with John Franklin-Myers dropping along with Williams and Carl Lawson operating on a stunt.

Williams shows off some of his athletic prowess here, quickly moving laterally on the stunt. He has his hands ready when he works his way to the left tackle. Williams looks to swipe with his outside hand, then works his inside arm over. Thanks to a tight angle, Williams helps cause pressure and an incompletion.

In play number three of this review, Williams aligns at the 4i-Tech and quickly wins with power. Off the ball, he slants his rush, attacking the inside shoulder of the left guard, who adjusts his pass set. With Williams’ suddenness to his movement, the left guard is unable to balance out his base, and Williams uses that against him.

Williams’ pads may be a bit high at the initial point of contact. But, with the moving left guard and Williams’ tight, ready hands, he creates a ton of power.

With this rep, Williams is positioned at the 3-Technique. On a third down, he causes an incompletion with the pressure he creates.

Williams exhibits some of his get-off as well as closing speed here. He again attacks the inside shoulder of the left guard and works back across his face to the outside. With ready hands, Williams utilizes a two-handed swipe move he wins with relative ease.

Williams knows his rush plan and soundly executes it.

On the fifth play here, Williams works from the 4i-Tech. He goes with essentially the same rush plan, attacking Ezra Cleveland’s inside shoulder. Only this time, Cleveland looks prepared as he does not adjust his pass set.

In turn, Williams deploys a club technique with his right hand and, from there, looks to attempt to rip through with his left arm. He is able to get low through the rush and establish some power with the leverage he created. Williams gets a near sack that would have been crucial.

On this rep, Williams lines up at the 2i. With ready hands that he lands well on his blocker, Williams gets some power, is able to read the runner all the way, shows some lower body strength as he disengages, and completely shuts down this play.

In the seventh play here, Williams is at the 4i and works on a stunt with Carl Lawson. Williams moves well laterally and arrives with great pad level at the initial point against the left tackle.

He gets power and then rips through with his inside arm to finish for the sack. Again on this stunt, Williams takes a perfect angle to the quarterback while cornering at the apex of his rush.

The final play of this film review. The Jets’ defense needs a stop to get the ball back to the offense with a chance to win. Williams helps by blowing up this run.

He lines up as the 2i. The Vikings run a jet motion zone split. Williams gets doubled off the snap and splits it perfectly, not allowing the center (Garrett Bradbury #56) to get his hands on.

Thanks to a great edge set by rookie defensive end Micheal Clemons, Alexander Mattison has to keep this run inside. Williams keeps his eyes up and exhibits his anchor/lower body strength as he just keeps moving. He finishes this tackle for loss late in the ballgame with great effort.
