Authentic Jaccob Slavin Jersey
Limited playing experience in high school and college makes Sam Darnold appreciate every game T.J. Oshie Jersey , even if it's just the preseason.
The third overall pick made his first exhibition start for the New York Jets on Thursday night and showed some of the growing pains of a rookie quarterback by throwing an interception , taking two sacks and having a couple of balls batted out of the air.
Darnold was 8 of 11 for 62 yards in the first half before giving way to Teddy Bridgewater in a game the Jets lost to the Washington Redskins 15-13 on a last-second field goal.
"Any game experience is huge," said Darnold, who felt he played well but wasn't as sharp as his 13 of 18 for 96 yards preseason debut. "I feel like I'm going to continue to grow and get better every single day, and that's what I'm most excited about is to see how much I'm going to be able to grow and get better."
Darnold went in looking like the front-runner to win New York's starting QB competition, and it's still muddled after Bridgewater was 10 of 15 for 127 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Veteran Josh McCown didn't play after starting the first preseason game because coach Todd Bowles already knows what he has in the 39-year-old.
"It's already been cloudy Womens Will Butcher Jersey ," Bowles said. "It'll be a tough choice."
Darnold showed flashes for the Jets (1-1), going 5 of 5 on his second drive but was sacked by Preston Smith to force a field goal on a night full of them. Bridgewater took some intentional risks to test the left knee he injured two years ago to the point Bowles joked he had a neighborhood he could send the former Vikings quarterback to if he wanted to get hit.
"Some of those plays, I could've thrown the ball away or run out of bounds, but I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could take a hit and it was fun," Bridgewater said.
Redskins starter Alex Smith was 4 of 6 for 48 yards in one series, his only work so far in the preseason. Smith said he always wished he could play more but acknowledged "it's a fine line."
Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins made all five of his field-goal attempts, including a 40-yarder as time expired to win it for the Redskins (1-1).

REDSKINS RB COMPETITION
After second-round pick Derrius Guice's season ended because of a torn ACL , Rob Kelley was up first to show he deserves to be Washington's starter. Kelley had seven carries for 17 yards, Perine was impressive on his one run before being injured, Marshall had a kick-return fumble that was overturned on video review and Kapri Bibbs made six catches for 47 yards with only 6 yards on the ground.
"It will be a tough deal for us to figure all that out, but we will," Gruden said.
Linebacker Jordan Jenkins was flagged on the game's opening drive for roughing the passer against Smith when he drove the QB into the ground. Darron Lee was penalized for a horse-collar tackle on Redskins punt returner Danny Johnson. Then, there was rookie Frankie Luvu Authentic Jaccob Slavin Jersey , who led with his helmet into Colt McCoy on a more egregious roughing-the-passer violation than what Jenkins had.
All players appeared to stand for the national anthem. Jets players locked arms along the visiting sideline with no one remaining in the locker room.

New Orleans has had only two draft choices so far. They selected defensive end Marcus Davenport of Texas-San Antonio during Thursday night’s the first round and took Central Florida receiver Tre’Quan Smith during Friday night’s third round.
The Saints did not have a second round pick because it had been traded away a year earlier as part of deal that allowed New Orleans to draft running back Alvin Kamara in 2017.
On Saturday, the Saints will have one pick each in the four, fifth and seventh rounds, and two picks in the sixth.
The Saints entered the draft wanting urgently to upgrade their pass rush. They are also seeking depth on the offensive line, at tight end and at linebacker.
