In the final preseason game of the summer, the NY Jets defeated their crosstown rival, the New York Giants, by a final score of 32-24. It was a highly anticipated preseason game as new superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers took the field for the first time as a member of the Jets.
Rodgers did not disappoint, and more about his start will be discussed below, but the final preseason game is also crucial for many players on the roster bubble. A good showing in the last preseason game can earn a player a roster spot with their current team or possibly another team moving forward.
Overall, it was a solid game for the offense, as they produced over 300 yards of total offense on just 57 offensive plays. Additionally, they managed to produce over 200 passing yards across their three quarterbacks that saw action.
However, as always, it wasn't all good. The Jets only managed to produce 41 rushing yards across all four quarters and failed to really move the ball on the ground at all. That will need to change come the regular season.
Below, I grade some of the performances from Week 3 of the preseason, featuring some familiar names and some under-the-radar players.
