Christian Hackenberg report card: How'd Jets' QB look vs. Titans?

Christian Hackenberg report card: How'd Jets' QB look vs. Titans?

At least that's what it felt like. Nickel cornerback Brice McCain gave up a red-zone touchdown to Jets WR Charone Peake on the first drive of the game. Hackenberg struggled that night, completing only 11-of-31 passes and throwing a mind-numbingly bad interception that he should never have tried to throw in the first place.

But Saturday night, as the preseason got under way, the Jets looked like something else.

How far along is Christian Hackenberg? Conversely, the Jets DST holds more value in daily fantasy, as the return on investment could be rewarding given their projected affordable cost. This was Hackenberg's first game since September 1, 2016, when he played the preseason finale at Philadelphia.

Hackenberg played eight drives. They ended in six punts, a missed field goal and the fumble. Josh McCown led the Jets to a quick touchdown on their opening drive, and Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty held it together the rest of the game without managing to bring NY more points.

He appeared less tentative than he's been in the past, his mechanics were improved and his sideline rapport with Josh McCown was continuous. Bryce Petty got mop-up duty, playing one series in the third quarter and the entire fourth. McCown completed 3-of-4 passes for 72 yards, a nifty 52 yard strike downfield to Robbie Anderson.

The Titans allowed the Jets to score only seven points. When it was first team vs. first team - the Jets limited the Titans to 28 yards on two series. The Jets defense totaled eight sacks, while Jordan Jenkins - making a strong case for a starting role at outside linebacker - had three solo tackles, with one for a loss, along with a sack.

The Jets now get another week of training camp before heading to Detroit for their second preseason game.

Hackenberg was greeted by a sack on his first snap of the third quarter.

The much-discussed Jets wide receiving corps did OK on Saturday night. Two plays later, McCown found Peake along the goal line for the four-yard touchdown, putting the Jets up 7-0.

There were several drops in the game by wideouts Jalin Marshall and Myles White and from fullbacks Julian Howsare and Anthony Firkser.

Well, it's Thursday and the season that Jets fans have been dreading since March is only two days away. Then Anthony Johnson sacked Tanney and forced a fumble that Josh Martin recovered.
