Giants 35, Jets 24
"George has looked poor, to say the least, in his limited time with the Jets. He was responsible for a preseason touchdown against Cincinnati and has just two tackles, thus far. In comparison, A.J. Edds, a surprise linebacker for Gang Green, has led the team both games with eight and six tackles, respectively."
Jeremy Reeves is still battling a knee injury. He was limited in practice and it’s unknown when he will return.
Patriots 30, Panthers 7
This was ugly the whole way. New England was up 30-0 before Carolina finally scored in the last two minutes. Tom Brady was near perfect — 17-of-21 passing, 204 yards, and 2 touchdowns.
— CAR: A.J. Klein only recorded one solo tackle in the game. It happened when he took down Jonas Gray at the 6:16 mark on 1st and 10. Two plays later, the Patriots completed a 40-yard pass for a touchdown to make it 10-0. The drive started all the way at the NE 9 yard line.
Eagles 31, Steelers 21
Nick Foles looked great completing 19-of-29 passes for 179 yards and one touchdown. Jeremy Maclin was the go-to receiver with 6 catches (on 8 targets) for 43 yards. Running back Matthew Tucker had the bulk of the carries (10 total) for 46 yards and 2 touchdowns.
— PHI: Jake Knott has yet to play in the preseason. He was among the inactives going into the game with a lingering hamstring injury. It’s very likely that with the PED suspension, we won’t be seeing Knott in action until October.
