Good morning, GGN! The third Jets preseason game of 2019 against the New Orleans Saints is on deck tonight in East Rutherford. This one should give us some idea of how the Jets stack up against the rest of the NFL, as the starters will go a half or more and the Saints, a legitimate Super Bowl contender, represent a tough challenge. It would be nice to see the Jets hold their own in the first half of this one.

The rotation of players in the lineup should also give us a good idea of where guys stand on the depth chart heading towards final cuts in a week. In general, other than guys being held out for injuries or as a precaution, the earlier you get into this game the better your chances are of making the 53 man roster
