Five questions for the Jets in their preseason Antworten

opener As the Jets open their preseason tonight against the Atlanta Falcons Darron Lee Jerseys 2019 , here are five questions heading into the game.How will quarterback reps be distributed?The most important position on the field has plenty of intrigue for the Jets. There are three contenders for the starting job. Josh McCown is the incumbent. Sam Darnold is the future. Teddy Bridgewater is the wild card. Logic would suggest McCown will see the least reps. At 39, he has a thorough understanding of all concepts in the offense and shouldn’t need many reps to prepare. It would be something of a surprise to see him get more than a series. The Jets presumably want to get a look at how Bridgewater holds up in his first extended action since his 2016 knee injury. He will show how he handles taking a hit, which could have implications both for his chances of winning the starting job and if the team is looking at trading him.The Jets will also want to get Darnold plenty of work. The rookie has come on strong in training camp and has put himself into contention for the starting job. Either way, plenty of preseason reps will benefit him.2. Who is at left tackle?The Jets certainly should hope Kelvin Beachum is ready for the start of the season, but he seems unlikely to play in this game. It is not clear who will take his place if he is not ready. The Jets also might consider the backup left tackle job a competition. Ben Ijalana White Jordan Jenkins Jersey , Brent Qvale, and Antonio Garcia are among the potential contenders. It will be interesting to see how the Jets distribute first team reps.3. Who will be the special teams aces?The path to the roster for many players will come based on strong special teams play on the coverage units. If you are third string at your position, you probably will not get a chance to make much impact for the team in the regular season. But coaches will notice impact plays on special teams.4. Who will start to play their way onto the team?Plenty of roster spots are up in the air and will be determined by performances in preseason games. Few of the bottom of the roster players will ever play a significant role for the Jets, but every now and then there is a Robby Anderson. Anderson came from obscurity two years ago to clinch a spot with a monster preseason. He is now a starter.5. Can the Jets avoid serious injuries?Let’s be honest. The biggest and perhaps only major long-term impacts from preseason games come in the form of injuries to key contributors. If the Jets avoid getting anybody seriously hurt the game will be a success in many ways. Wild card weekend continues in the NFL with a prime time game between the New England Patriots and the Tennessee Titans in Foxboro, Massachusetts.The Patriots come into this game losers of two of their last three home games and four of their last eight games overall Jordan Jenkins Jersey 2019 , including an embarrassing defeat to the Miami Dolphins in Foxboro last week that cost the Patriots a first round bye in the playoffs. This is a crumbling dynasty led by an ancient, mediocre quarterback, ready to fall. New England has never won the Super Bowl in a postseason in which it had to play in the wild-card round. They may not lose this week, but the writing is on the wall for the end of the Patriots domination of the last two decades.The Titans offense is led by Derrick Henry, the NFL’s leading rusher with 1 White Leonard Williams Jerseys ,540 yards. At 6’ 3” and 247 pounds, Henry is a punishing runner with enough speed to break away in the open field. The Patriots own the best pass defense in the NFL, but they are vulnerable against the run. Look for the Titans to try and exploit that vulnerability with a heavy dose of Henry.The Titans passing game is led by Ryan Tannehill, who finished the season with the highest passer rating in the NFL. I doubt you can find many NFL fans who think Tannehill is the league’s best passer, but sometimes a decent quarterback gets hot at just the right time to carry a team deep into the playoffs. Tannehill is facing the league’s best pass defense today Leonard Williams Jerseys 2019 , so the Titans likely will not be looking to put the game on his shoulders.Since Ryan Tannehill took over for Marcus Mariota as the starting quarterback for the Titans in Week 7, Tennessee has been dominant in the red zone. Overall, the Titans finished the regular season first in the NFL in red zone offense, converting touchdowns on 76% of their possessions inside the 20 yard-line, almost nine percentage points higher than the next closest team White Kelechi Osemele Jerseys , the Baltimore Ravens. If the Titans can keep that up today, we might see a rare Patriots home loss in the first round of the playoffs today.It’s the Patriots and the Titans in the second AFC wild card game on one of the best weekends in the NFL season. Enjoy the game everybody.
