The Jets opened the game on offense and moved the ball downfield before the drive stalled after Conner McGovern took a 15 yard tripping penalty at the 22 yard line. Zach Wilson took what the defense gave him, accurately hitting mostly short passes and moving the chains. Greg Zuerlein converted a 47 yard field goal as the Jets took an early 3 - 0 lead.
The Jets defense then did a good job as the ensuing Panthers drive stalled at the Panthers’ 39 yard line.
From there the game bogged down in a tight defensive struggle. Neither team threatened to score again until late in the 2nd quarter, when Zach Wilson led another Jets field goal drive dominated by the running backs for a 6 - 0 Jets lead.
After a Panthers went three and out, Zach Wilson capped off an encouraging performance by leading the Jets on a 61 yard touchdown drive to give the Jets a 13 - 0 lead at halftime.
We go into the second half with the Jets leading the Panthers by 13 points at 13 - 0.
