NFL: Atlanta Falcons at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets beat the Falcons to kick off the preseason by a score of 17-0.

At 1-0, they are now tied for the best record in the NFL.

Kidding aside, it was about as solid a preseason outing the Jets could have asked for. Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold both got a lot of playing time and did well for themselves. The defense dominated throughout every level of the depth chart.

The Jets will take the field next Thursday, August 16th in Landover, Maryland, to take on the Washington Redskins. That game will be played at 8:00 ET and is scheduled to be broadcasted nationally on ESPN.
