The young NY Jets show promising signs in Philadelphia

Ah, football is finally back, as the New York Jets kicked off their 2022 campaign in their preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

It was a game in which you only hope for a few key things …

First and very much foremost … health. And, of course, Robert Saleh’s team escaped with no major injuries. Right?

The full member-only Jets-Eagles film breakdown can be seen at the bottom of this article (nearly three hours in length). 


Second-year signal caller Zach Wilson went down on his second drive of the preseason. As he faced pressure coming off of his right side, Wilson tried to make a play by scrambling out to his right.

Unfortunately for Wilson, in a situation where he should have scrambled out of bounds, he fought for extra yardage, cutting off of his right leg, leading to a non-contact injury.

Jets fans collectively thought the worst, an ACL tear, collectively ruining the Jets’ season, before it even had a chance to truly start. Aided by trigger-happy Twitter doctors, who jumped to recklessly confirm Jet fans’ worries, fans thought it was going to be a torn ACL for Wilson.

Fortunately for everyone, except for the Twitter doctors, Zach Wilson received a 2-4 week prognosis as his knee had no structural damage.

Past that, other Jets did, in fact, play a football game, and there was a lot of positive to come out of the 24-21 victory.

  • How did the starters, who played, look in this game?
  • How did the rookies play?
  • Are we concerned with what Zach Wilson put on tape?
  • Are we concerned with the Jets’ defense?
  • Who are some bottom-of-the-roster players who may have lost their spot or did well for themselves?

All of these questions and many more are answered in this edition of Blewett’s Blitz.
