Get the latest updates from tonight’s preseason Week 3 matchup between the New York Jets and New York Giants.

The MetLife Bowl is finally upon the beautiful city of New York! The New York Jets are the road team as the New York Giants will the home team but it doesn’t make much of a difference since it’s a shared stadium anyway. The annual preseason matchup is all about bragging rights but both teams are unfortunately on opposite ends of the spectrum.

The Jets are a team on the rebuild as things aren’t looking good at all. They’re still searching for answers when it comes to several positions on the team from quarterback, offensive line, linebackers, and everything else in between. The Giants, on the other hand, haven’t won a preseason game yet but are easily a playoff-contending one thanks to their high-octane offense and a superb defense.

Either way, tonight’s matchup should be an interesting one, to say the least. Head coach Todd Bowles will have his Week 1 regular season starting quarterback announced at some point this upcoming week. The quarterbacks playing tonight could very well still be in the hunt as anything can change faster than a New York minute. It’s expected that both Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty will more than likely receive a plethora of playing time against Big Blue.

Bryce Petty to ArDarius Stewart for a 25-yard TD. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) August 27, 2017

Petty always has been comfortable improvising, nice throw there to Hansen. Both rookie WRs have a pair of catches.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) August 27, 2017

#Jets WR Charone Peake doesn’t have a catch or target tonight. Last year’s seventh-round pick not guaranteed roster spot.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 27, 2017

Petty starts off completing first two passes. Hits wide open Stewart on out for first down.

2nd pick-six of the half for the Giants. Anderson got hit hard by Jenkins and Donte Deayon grabs it and has clear sailing. #29-3. #NYJvsNYG

Another pick-6 for Hackenberg, but that was on Anderson. Pass in his hands, got hit hard by Jenkins. #Jets

#Jets injury update: Leonard Williams is questionable to return with a wrist injury.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 27, 2017

Sheldon Richardson came to play. Has 1 sack and a QB hit that set up an interception. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 27, 2017

Leonard Williams is hurt. He’s being taken back to the locker room. #Jets

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 27, 2017

Giants have gained 162 yards on three drives against the #Jets' starting defense tonight.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 27, 2017

#Jets get on the board with a 27-yard FG by Catanzaro. Hackenberg's 18th drive of the preseason finally ends in points. #Giants lead 19-3

— JetsInsider.com (@JetsInsider) August 27, 2017

Hackenberg & Jets offense's best drive of night (9 off plays, 66 yds) stalls at Giants 9, Chandler Catanzaro puts G&W on board w/ 27-yd FG.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) August 27, 2017

One positive so far: Matt Forte looking solid.

— Gang Green Nation (@GangGreenNation) August 26, 2017

Christian Hackenberg completes his first pass, to Matt Forte for minus-1 yards as the 1st quarter ends. …. Giants 19, Jets 0.

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) August 26, 2017

End of first quarter in this pretend football game. #Jets trail Giants 19-0.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Hackenberg scoreless in 17 preseason drives. 2 of 6 for 14 yards and 2 sacks last week. 0 for 3 with a pick-six and two sacks tonight.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 26, 2017

Christian Hackenberg has played 17 preseason drives. Zero #Jets points. Nine points for opponents — pick six and safety tonight vs. Giants.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

#Jets go three plays and out on their fourth drive, after Jason Pierre-Paul absolutely mauls Brandon Shell. Bad night for Shell.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Kinda feel bad for Hackenberg, honestly. He’s playing without an OL & less at WR.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 26, 2017

Through three drives, about as bad of a start for Hackenberg as you could imagine. #Jets are giving him every chance. And he is failing.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

#Jets are down 12-0, including a pick six and a safety. A field goal, too. Christian Hackenberg doesn't look ready to start in the NFL.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Christian Hackenberg telegraphs a pass to his right, Giants S Landon Collins steps in front of the receiver for a 23-yard Pick-6.

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) August 26, 2017

Hackenberg interception. Terrible pass picked off by Landon Collins and returned for a touchdown. Awful throw. #Jets

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 26, 2017

Jets currently being outgained by the Giants 106 yards to minus-2.

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) August 26, 2017

Giants drive for a FG and a 5-0 lead.

— Gang Green Nation (@GangGreenNation) August 26, 2017

Trainers talk briefly to Jamal Adams on sideline. Now he's no longer speaking to them. Appears they cleared him. #Jets

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Looks like Adams may have just gotten the wind knocked out of him. He is on his feet #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) August 26, 2017

Jets rookie safeties, Maye and Adams, getting exposed on this drive. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 26, 2017

Sterling Sheppard beat Skrine on a crossing route. Skrine had man-coverage. Sheppard beat him on the break. #jets

Safety for the Giants as Forte was tackled by JPP in the end zone. Green & White trail 2-0. #NYJvsNYG

Christian Hackenberg's second drive ends in a safety, after Matt Forte takes a handoff and is tackled in the end zone. #Jets

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Christian Hackenberg will start his second drive at his own 3-yard line. A 97-yard touchdown drive coming? #Jets

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Eli Manning hammered as he throws and is picked off near the goal line by Jets CB Juston Burris.

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) August 26, 2017

And with that… Eli Manning pressured by Sheldon Richardson. Chucks one up. Juston Burris comes away with the jump ball INT. https://t.co/ljRyhku7Aq

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 26, 2017

In sub, Skrine inside and Roberts outside. Claiborne out tonight

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) August 26, 2017

With Claiborne out, Burris, Skrine and Roberts the top 3 CBs. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 26, 2017

Donahue and Beltre in the starting nickel for the Jets.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 26, 2017

Juston Burris starts at cornerback with Morris Claiborne sidelined. #Jets

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Josh Martin starts at outside linebacker, opposite Jordan Jenkins. #Jets

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

That's 30 preseason scoreless series in a row for Hackenberg dating back to last year #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) August 26, 2017

#Jets' receivers in two-receiver set were Robby Anderson and Charone Peake. In three-receiver set: Anderson, Peake, Kenbrell Thompkins.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Hackenberg’s third-down pass is battled at the line. Falls incomplete. #Jets will punt. Hackenberg now scoreless on 14 preseason drives.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 26, 2017

Jets go three and out as Hackenberg's first pass is tipped at the line by JPP.

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) August 26, 2017

Hackenberg at QB, Forte at RB. He eludes a couple of tackles there. Shell started at RT, KT was in the slot.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) August 26, 2017

Matt Forte out there to start the game, after being sidelined with a hamstring injury for most of camp. #Jets

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Another audition opportunity tonight for Christian Hackenberg. Let's see what he can do with it.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017

Christian Hackenberg has his helmet. Josh McCown doesn’t. Hackenberg starting this game. #jets

No press box announcement for starting QB. Game on NBC, so likely centered around Giants. Waiting game now. Hack likely the guy #Jets

Jets currently carrying 21 rookies on the roster. Lots of young guys with a shot to make an impression late in game vs. Giants.

— Glenn Naughton (@AceFan23) August 26, 2017

Christian Hackenberg is taking reps with the first team in warmups. Bryce Petty the second man out there. Where does this leave McCown? #NYJ

— JetsInsider.com (@JetsInsider) August 26, 2017

Josh McCown not getting any pre-game reps. It's all Hackenberg and Petty. Strange QB competition getting stranger. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 26, 2017

Based on warmups, and Christian Hackenberg getting work with starting offensive line, it looks like he'll start for second straight week.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 26, 2017
