Jets Top Eagles, 13 – 11
The Jets wrapped up the preseason tonight with a victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.Â The Eagles scored with 2:57 remaining in the game and went for two in order to avoid a tie game and overtime.Â They converted and went ahead by a score of 11 – 10.Â
Marques Tuiasosopo (8 for 12, 62 yards and 1 rushing TD) led the Jets down the field and Mike Nugent kicked a 35 yarder to win the game.Â It also looks likeÂ Marques Tuiasosopo has won the 3rd QB job.Â He led the Jets to 10 points in the 4th quarter and looked poised running the two minute drill.Â He actually made the team before he took the field.Â Brad Smith was 2 for 8 passing and reminded everyone that he is at his best when he is not passing the ball.
DT CJ Mosley made a huge statement in the first half with 3 sacks.Â FB Stacy Tutt also received a long look at HB (11 carries for 45 yards) and ran the ball well. The Jets have until Saturday (09/01) to reduce the roster to 53.Â Visit our forums and tell us who you think will get cut and who will stay.Â Â
