Jets vs Eagles Preview

The New York Jets and quarterback Zach Wilson look to show signs of progress in the preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday — even if it’s brief.

“If they put together a good first series, we’ll call it a day,” Jets head coach Robert Saleh said via the New York Post’s Mark Cannizzaro. “If not, we’ll just go out there and try to get a certain number of plays.”

Wilson came to the Jets with high expectations at the team’s No. 2 draft pick in 2021. He threw more interceptions than touchdowns as the Jets sputtered for a 4-13 overall record last year.

“I’ve never been more excited to play football,” Wilson said via Kelsey Dallas the Desert News.

Philadelphia similarly looks to make a second-year splash with quarterback Jalen Hurts under center full-time. Hurts, a 2020 draft pick, led the Eagles to playoffs in 2021 before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers knocked them out in the Wild Card round.

“I care so much. I have so much passion for the game,” Hurts said via CBS Sports’ Jeff Kerr. “The process, the work, (and) what it takes. Knowing this city is all about that and this city is as passionate as it is, it lights a fire in all of us.”

Quarterbacks aside, numerous Jets and Eagles players will look to make their mark on Friday from solidifying depth chart spots to cracking the 53-man roster.

In Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims’ case, he has a disappointing 2021 season to put behind him. Mims mustered just eight receptions for 133 yards in 11 games played, but he wants to shoot for the lead receiver spot.

“Hopefully I see myself on top,” Mims said via The Athletic’s Zack Rosenblatt. “I’ve put in enough work to be there.”

Eagles running back Jason Huntley will likely play a big role in Friday’s opener with significant caries and kick return duties per Sports Illustrated’s Eagles Today. Huntley has only six games of experience in two seasons with 18 carries for 70 yards.
