Rapidly improving New York Jets DT Quinnen Williams found numerous ways to cause trouble for the Buffalo Bills offense.

Following Quinnen Williams’ standout performances against the 49ers, Broncos, and Dolphins, each of which were arguably better than any of his 2019 outings, I asked the same question every time – can he string performances of this caliber together?

Williams alternated between decent and excellent games over the first six games, but now, he has finally gone out and put forth back-to-back fantastic games.

Against the Bills, Williams made a huge impact, constantly creating positive value through a combination of subtle off-the-stat-sheet plays and on-ball production.

Williams has improved tremendously off of his 2019 rookie season, elevating from “solid” to “great,” but if he continues to stockpile performances like this one, he will break through to the elite ranks of his position sooner rather than later.

Let’s take a look at Williams’ impressive game against Buffalo.

Williams throws a filthy chain of moves on this play to quickly get home for a hit on Josh Allen. From the 2i-technique position, Williams attacks the B-gap and swats the drag hand of the left guard. He then clubs the center with his inside arm and transitions into an arm-over with his outside arm. Clean victory. Allen is forced to throw the ball away and Williams brings him down for the hit.

Sheer power on this rush from Williams contributes to forcing another Allen incompletion. As the 1-tech, Williams sets up to his left and thrusts his right hand into the center’s upper body, jolting him three yards back. Williams comes back to the space opened up on the right side while the center sells out to try and save the play, leaning hard in an attempt to shove Williams out of the gap. Williams extends his left arm and hits the center hard on his right shoulder to create even more penetration. Allen has no room to step into his throw and overshoots Stefon Diggs. This is plain-old raw strength that you cannot teach – Williams moves Mitch Morse nine yards into the backfield. Eye-popping stuff.
