The younger New York Jets shined in the team’s 24-16 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons

On the heels of a hectic Week 1 of the 2022 preseason, the New York Jets brass decided to turn the dial down a bit. After a week of questions about if the starters would play, most ultimately did not.

The offense did not see one starter take the field, and the defense mostly followed suit. Only Sauce Gardner, Lamarcus Joyner, Quincy Williams and Kwon Alexander saw reps, which were very limited.

Some key reserves also sat out, including Tyler Conklin, Bryce Huff, Sheldon Rankins and more.

The full member-only Jets-Falcons film breakdown (1:38:00 in length) can be viewed at the bottom of this article. 

Considering the team’s overall play, fans should have expected an ugly, boring football game. And, for the most part, that’s what Monday Night Football delivered.

The Jets started slow on both sides of the ball, as the Falcons’ offensive starters took advantage of the Jets’ backups deployed in a vanilla preseason defense. The Atlanta Falcons’ defense took advantage of the Jets’ backup offensive line and quarterback Mike White, who has struggled throughout the preseason.

Once the second half kicked off, the Jets started to show fight, led by preseason favorite Chris Streveler. The former CFL standout has been ascending throughout the summer, first not receiving any team reps to leading the Jets offense to two come-from-behind preseason victories.

The Jets’ defense also responded as the game continued, pitching a second-half shutout, barely squeaking by a 24-16 victory.

  • Who was responsible for the first half no-show?
  • Who is being over and under-hyped in this game?
  • How did the rookies play?
  • Is Chris Streveler a better option at QB than Mike White?
  • What’s wrong with the defense?

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

At 49:10, if Ruckert blocks the punter, that’s a TD, right? Ruckert ends up blocking no one.
