Jets lose by a score of 28-13 to the Saints.
Analysis and Breakdown:
I really didn't have an issue with the quarterback play tonight. I thought it was pretty decent. There was no inaccuracy surrounding the bad o-line tonight.
I'd say the RB standouts were McGuire and Cannon. Both played looked like they wanted a roster spot. Cannon on his first two rushes lead to first downs. McGuire came out of the box firing. Montgomery was a little shaky. Besides catching a TD pass, he made a costly fumble in the 1st quarter.
WR & TE: I thought the wide recievers had a nice night. There were not too many dropped passes as all looked accurate.
The tight ends were okay on the blocking end. Not too much to say.
I thought the offensive line was horrific tonight. This didn't do any wonders for players trying to make roster spots. There wasn't enough protection for Darnold. Luckily, he didn't come out injured. Yah, the Saints have a good defensive line but you can beat anyone as long as you put your mind to it. To add, three members of the starting o-line didn't play. Not to mention, the holding penalties killed us.
Defensive Line/Pass Rush:
I thought this group did okay. The Jets only got two sacks tonight. Leo Williams and Quinnen Williams were getting the pressure. I thought the unit did okay
Linebackers and Secondary:
I thought this was the weakest link of the defense tonight. Pass coverage wasn't so good. The secondary was getting shredded by the Saints no.1 team. Not to mention, our top corner is out. It sucks we have injuries in the secondary but the rookies have to step up if they want to be on the 53-man roster come Week 1.
Special Teams/ Kicker:
I thought the special teams play was pretty lackluster. This includes unnecessary penalties along with giving up a punt return TD.
Bertolet might have solidified his roster spot with tonight's performance. Bertolet was perfect on field goals and extra points including a field goal from 56 yards out. I am impressed with him.
Jets play the Eagles next Thursday to close out the preseason.
