2. Bradlee Anae, DE, NY Jets

The Jets are absolutely loaded at defensive end, and that much was made evident when Bradlee Anae, perhaps the last guy on the defensive end depth chart, made the play of the night on Monday.

With the Jets leading 17-16 in the fourth quarter, Anae sacked Franks on a beautiful shoestring tackle, forced a fumble, picked up the fumble himself, and ran it all the way back into the end zone for what would prove to be the dagger.

It was a complete performance from Anae who flashed at other points throughout the game as well. His 79.8 PFF pass-rush grade was among the highest on either team in Monday's game.

With so many players vying for maybe 1-2 spots, it's going to be difficult for Anae to crack the 53-man roster. But he deserves to be on some team's roster, whether it's the Jets or not.

1. Chris Streveler, QB, NY Jets

Chris Streveler has captured the hearts of Jets faithful this summer in a not-too-dissimilar way to how Mike White did so last year. Only Streveler's rise has come at the expense of the Canton resident.

With Joe Flacco sitting out, White and Streveler were the only two quarterbacks to play for the Jets on Monday, and it was abundantly clear who the better player was. While White struggled, Streveler shined.

The former CFL star completed 8-of-11 passes for 119 yards, a touchdown, and an interception on a potentially catchable throw to Denzel Mims. He also led the team with 33 rushing yards on six attempts.

Streveler helped put together another second-half comeback and has been the catalyst behind both Jets' preseason victories this summer. Will it be enough to usurp White on the depth chart? Likely not. But he's certainly done everything in his power to improve his stock this preseason.
