Avery Williamson started at linebacker on Sunday for the Jets. He had five solo tackles and assisted on four other tackles in his team’s 35-9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Then hours later on Sunday night he got the best news a member of the 2020 Jets (or, really, any Jets team) could get – he was being traded.

Making things even better for Williamson, he was being traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

If you’re keeping track at home, Williamson went from being on the 0-8 Jets to the 7-0 Steelers.

He went from being on the lone winless team to being on the lone undefeated team.

That has to feel absolutely incredible!

The Steelers beat the rival Ravens on Sunday and have arguably the best defense in the league.

The Steelers are a stable franchise that has serious plans of contending for a Super Bowl title.

The Jets are a not even close to being a stable franchise and will once again be drafting very early in the first round.

I don’t know if Williamson is going to fly to Pittsburgh or just skip all the way there.

I’d probably choose the skipping option.

Congrats on your new life, Avery.

Quick hits: Jerry Jones became a meme during SNF… What were refs thinking?… Chargers blow another game… And more!

– Speaking of the Cowboys, how did the refs miss these two calls on the Eagles’ pivotal touchdown in the fourth quarter?

– The Chargers found another amazing way to blow a big lead and game on Sunday and NFL fans had jokes.

– Chicago’s Javon Wims threw two wild punches at the Saints’ C.J. Gardner-Johnson and was ejected from the game. But seriously, why throw punches at a guy wearing a helmet?

– Aaron Rodgers got absolutely laid out on the Packers’ final play in their loss to the Vikings.

– Russell Wilson shouldn’t be allowed to do this.

– Baseball fans found a lot of creative ways to mock the Astros on Halloween.
