Teddy Bridgewater solid in Jets debut

  • Sam Darnold unleashes a pass during a recent practice as Josh Mc Cown and Teddy Bridgewater look

It was Bridgewater's first touchdown pass since August 28, 2016, in a preseason game for the Vikings against the Chargers. Darnold marched the Jets 64 yards in 10. This is why it's imperative that Darnold plays a lot in the preseason to get ready for such a personal achievement.

McCown is the incumbent and started the game, but played just one series - as he did last summer when NY wanted extended looks at Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.

The Jets shouldn't stunt Darnold's growth by bringing in another quarterback just for the sake of not exposing him in meaningless preseason games.

The former USC star demonstrated his improvisational skill, stepping up in the pocket and throwing on the run to Johnson in the corner of the end zone.

Playing with the backup offensive line on his second series, Bridgewater led NY on another scoring drive capped by Taylor Bertolet's 45-yard field goal. Darnold was persistent, overcoming a would-be touchdown that was dropped by Johnson and an offensive pass interference penalty on Johnson that nullified a scoring pass.

Darnold's first series ended in a punt and his non-throwing left hand was checked out by trainers on the sideline after it was stepped on. But he was fine and wore a glove in the second half. If anything, the Jets should focus mostly on Teddy Bridgewater and Darnold splitting duties with McCown advising, coaching, and mentoring on the sideline all preseason long.

The former Vikings starter fought back from a horrific knee injury suffered August 30, 2016.

"Overall, it was a great day", said Bridgewater, who finished 7 of 8 for 85 yards.

"I was so excited for this group". It felt good getting hit.

Crowell, in his first game with the Jets after four seasons in Cleveland, was evaluated for a head injury after taking a few hard hits on the play.

McCown (1-for-1, 4 yards) started the game but played only one series.

Sam Darnold jogged onto the field for his National Football League debut and was greeted by butterflies in his stomach and cheers in the stands. "So I feel like I can see the field a little bit clearer in a weird way". It's really nice to get that width and be able to see what exactly the coverage is.

"I think that's just one of the things I've been working on in practice is determining man, zone, one high, two high, those simple things that help you so much in determining what side to go to, because once you eliminate one side and work on one side, it makes the game a lot easier".
