Three non-Zach Wilson takeaways from Jets’ first preseason game

Three non-Zach Wilson takeaways from the Jets’ 24-21 preseason win over the Eagles on Friday night in Philadelphia:

The defense rests

The Jets had five starters missing on defense, but they still let the Eagles march down the field too easily on their first two drives. The Eagles had two seven-play touchdown drives to open the game. Jalen Hurts hit Dallas Goedert for a 22-yard touchdown and Jason Huntley scored on fourth-and-goal from the 1.

Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert catches a 22-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the Jets' 24-21 preseason victory.

Mims the word

Wide receiver Denzel Mims had two catches for 25 yards on five targets in the game. He also had an illegal formation penalty and a drop. Mims is going to need more production in order to secure a roster spot.

‘Smart’ lineman helps his cause

Backup defensive lineman Tanzel Smart had two sacks in the game. The Jets have an extremely deep defensive line and Smart is fighting for a roster spot. He helped his cause to at least have a spot on the practice squad.
