The Jets lost to the New Orleans Saints in their third preseason game Saturday night at MetLife Stadium. While the score in preseason typically doesn’t carry a ton of meaning, the 28-13 final was fairly emblematic of the way things went down in this one.
Many coaches consider the third preseason game to be a dress rehearsal. There is an old theater superstition that a poor dress rehearsal is an open for a good opening night. If that is the case, the Jets will probably blow the Bills out in Week 1 because their performance against the Saints was quite poor.
With that said, the team we saw on the field Saturday will look quite different from the one that takes the field against Buffalo in just under two weeks so it would be a good idea to not get too worked up over this one admittedly poor outing.
We discuss all of that and more on today’s podcast.
