The New York Jets will come into Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday with a 4-3 record due in large part to their dominant defensive line. Between defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, they boast the best 3-4 d-line in the NFL, and those two have 8.5 sacks between them.

They’ve been pivotal in anchoring the league’s fifth-best rush defense, and Pro Football Focus grades those two among the best lineman against the run:

Ironically enough, DeVito played six seasons in New York before he signed a three-year deal worth $12.6 million with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan knows how to develop Pro Bowl-caliber defensive lineman. The Bengals offensive line will have to bring their A+ game Sunday if they want to be 6-2 at the midpoint of the season.
