Jets vs. Titans: 5 pregame storylines for New York's preseason opener

Jets vs. Titans: 5 pregame storylines for New York's preseason opener”

This was Hackenberg's first game since September 1, 2016, when he played the preseason finale at Philadelphia. The Titans could be a team that will surprise after making many solid acquisitions through free agency and the National Football League draft in recent years.

New offensive coordinator John Morton didn't ask Hackenberg to do too much, a smart way to break him in. No, that's not going to happen in the preseason, but this game wasn't about that. Can Hackenberg overtake Josh McCown for the starting job?

The Jets are hoping it's a sign of things to come after finishing fourth in the AFC East previous year with a 5-11 record. The field goal Catanzaro missed tonight, in his first game in a Jets' uniform, was 55 yards, yet his kicking power wasn't to blame. Both passes were strong throws to the sideline, leading the receiver perfectly. But overall, it was a good night.

The ugly: The lack of points to show for it. Hackenberg quarterbacked eight drives but led the Jets to a score on none of them.

NY scored its lone touchdown when Josh McCown connected wtih Charone Peake on a 4-yard touchdown pass in the opening quarter. Anderson, the Jets' presumed No. 1 receiver after the loss of Quincy Enunwa, hauled in the pass at the Titans 2-yard line. He was close to flawless, completing 3 of 4 passes (one drop) for 72 yards. Anderson had three catches for 71 yards, and Chris Harper, continuing his solid play from training camp, caught two balls for 21 yards. Punter Lachlan Edwards, the only punter on the roster, struggled. Freddie Bishop did nothing special while playing with the first-string D opposite Jordan Jenkins (who also had a great sack), so don't be surprised if Martin gets more first-team looks next week.

Bryce Petty, a fourth-round pick in 2015, finished up and was 2 of 6 for 16 yards.
