This week’s postseason matchup pits the New York Jets against the Atlanta Falcons. Most of New York’s starters are expected to sit out this game, but Atlanta’s will see at least some action.
That means we’ll see Marcus Mariota and Kyle Pitts on the first drive or so. Wide receiver Drake London, however, is out with an injury suffered during the team’s first preseason game. After Mariota’s night is over, third-round pick Desmond Ryder will get a good amount of burn. Ridder threw two touchdowns in his first season action, but completed just 10 of 22 passes for 102 yards.
Zach Wilson is New York’s preseason opener and Joe Flacco is still out due to an injury. It is said that he did not play, Mike White and Chris Streveler look to see more action against the Falcons. It’s unlikely we’ll see much of Brees Hall, Michael Carter, Elijah Moore or Garrett Wilson, but there should be some interesting down-roster candidates who get playing time on both sides of the ball.
Stay with us throughout the evening as we blog the festivities with stats, scores, highlights and more.
