Jets DE Leonard Williams is not worried about the defense despite it allowing over 400 total yards to the Bills in their season opener Sunday.
The Jets struggled to keep the Bills in check when they had the ball, especially when it was in the hands of star RB LeSean McCoy who totaled 110 yards. But Williams is confident in his squad, saying everyone on the unit just needs to do their job.
"We know what we have," Williams told The Post's Brian Costello. "Every person on the team knows what type of defense we are and what type of defense we could be. We've seen glimpses of it when every person on the defense is doing their job. We just have to hold ourselves to that standard, and everybody has to do their job, and we'll get it done."
As for what specifically went wrong, Williams points at the fine details.
"The biggest problem I saw was just a bunch of small details," he said. "It wasn't like anyone was getting beat really badly. People weren't getting beat that bad. It's just us executing our plays and making sure we stay in our gap, Staying disciplined and staying on the details every play. As soon as someone messed up on one detail, that's when something broke."
Head coach Todd Bowles agress with Williams in that he is not too concerned with the defensive performance. Mistakes were made, but they can easily be fixed in his mind.
"They're minor," Bowles said. "They can be corrected. They're self-inflicted. We'll just go back and everybody watched the film. We understand what we did wrong. We'll just go back to the drawing board and work on them. We'll have it fixed by Sunday."
At the end of the matchup, the Bills totaled 408 yards with 190 coming on the ground. The Jets will have an even tougher matchup Sunday when they face the Raiders in Oakland. They put up 359 total yards on the Titans in their Week 1 victory.
Williams, acknowledging the Raiders have a "great offense," believes the defense can correct things by Sunday.
"What gives me confidence is it wasn't every play we were messing up," Williams said. "We've seen what it looks like when we're doing it right. When we're doing it right, it looks perfect. We stop the offense. We showed that we can play that way. I definitely havve confidence in us that we'll correct it and fix the details."
