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:

Wilkerson has recorded a sack in three consecutive games, with 10 in his last 14 games. This past week, The Jets sacked Patriots QB Tom Brady four times, bringing their season total to 24.

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan knows how to develop Pro Bowl-caliber defensive lineman. Going against a stout Bengals o-line will be a fun battle to watch.
