The Jets will try to finish off the 2021 preseason campaign with an undefeated record when they host the Eagles on Friday night. Robert Saleh is obviously trying to establish a winning culture in his first preseason, treating these like real games which is something the Eagles cannot claim.
Nick Sirianni is also in his first preseason as a head coach, but his team didn’t produce anything in a 35-0 loss at home to the Patriots last week. Jalen Hurts was a last minute scratch from that game with a stomach ailment, and his status for the finale is iffy as well.
Hurts returned to practice this week, and it’s obvious that he would benefit from some snaps after having to learn his second NFL offense in as many seasons. Hurts also didn’t get a preseason last year as it was canceled due to COVID.
The Eagles are +4 point underdogs on Friday night, and whether Hurts plays or not they do have a couple experienced backups in Joe Flacco and Nick Mullens. Flacco had a 79 yard TD pass in the preseason opener (thanks mostly to yards after catch), and was 10 of 17 last week. Mullens has 3 INTs vs. backup defenses however.
The Eagles offense has a tough go of it regardless in this one as Saleh’s imprint has been all over this defense through two games. The Jets sacked the Giants 5 times in the exhibition opener, and have given up just 10 first half points in two games.
Philly’s offense on the other hand is a concern. The Eagles gave up 258 yards passing and another 152 on the ground to Pittsburgh in their opener, and New England did whatever they wanted last week in the 35-0 victory.
New York Jets
The Jets have given their young signal caller a lot of action this preseason, with Zach Wilson going 6 of 9 vs. the Giants and then 9 of 11 with 2 TDs last week vs. Green Bay. Both of those games have been on the road (technically first game was at NYG) so Friday night marks Wilson’s true home debut.
The revamped Jets offensive line has looked good too, allowing just 1 sack in each of the first two preseason openers. That line also allowed rookie Michael Carter II to run for 52 yards on 10 carries last week, which could be huge vs. an Eagles squad getting torched on the ground this preseason.
Despite the fact that their offense has looked solid this preseason, the Jets defense is what makes them appealing Friday night. Green Bay 3rd stringer Kurt Benkert did go 18/25 last week, but the Jets were able to minimize the damage by picking off 2 passes and giving up just 14 points.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Jets -5
How can anybody like the Eagles in this one after they were completely dominated 35-0 last week against New England? It’s unknown if Hurts plays, and even if he does he’s got to be quite rusty and maybe even a bit weak after being sick last weekend. Flacco and Mullens have experience, but also limited success this preseason.
You have a feeling Saleh wants to end the preseason undefeated. Wilson looked great last week against Green Bay and Carter has looked good running the ball as well.
