The New York Jets will showcase a quarterback competition that most observers want to ignore throughout the preseason. But there’s one noteworthy news connected to Gang Green’s three-man battle under the starting quarterback job.
The New York Jets will deploy one of the bottom-three rosters in the NFL for the 2017 NFL regular season, which means the team will be tanking this season in hope to earn the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to land their next franchise quarterback, assuming those collegians declare for the draft.
Meanwhile, the Week 1 of 2017 NFL Preseason schedule also include Dallas Cowboys face off with the newly relocated Los Angeles Rams in the same preseason schedule they’ll see this Saturday night. Ezekiel Elliot will be serving his six-games suspension imposed by the NFL for violating the league personal conduct policy. However the Cowboys and Elliot will file an appeal to NFL. The preseason opener game against the Arizona Cardinals was a coming out party for the rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, as he recorded 10 of his 12 passes for 139 yards and a couple of touchdowns for the Cowboys.
The Cardinals lost their preseason opener to the Dallas Cowboys in what can only be called a ennobled scrimmage. Now, the Arizona Cardinals will get a single or two series from the roster’s starting players and another full half from Blaine Gabbert against the Oakland Raiders.
There will be four more exhibition games including a clash against the Detroit Lions before the Indianapolis Colts 2017 NFL regular season kicks off in Los Angeles against the Rams in September 10.
To conclude the Week 1 of 2017 NFL Preseason schedule, the Seattle Seahawks will face off the Los Angeles Chargers. The Seahawks concluded the 2016 season with a losing record of 10-5-1, but the team are once again considered as one of the top favorites to reach the Super Bowl 52. Seahawks superstar quarterback Russell Wilson is 100 percent healthy and more athletic following a meticulous offseason workout regimen and new diet.
The Seattle hopes that running back Eddie Lacy will help the roster revive what was a middle-of-the-road running game last season. The defense should be stronger, most especially with free safety Earl Thomas healthy after suffering a broken leg in the previous season.
The Los Angeles Chargers, on the other side of the gridiron, concluded the previous season with a 5-11 record, their second straight losing season. The franchise relocated its headquarter and home stadiums from San Diego to Los Angeles in January and will play their home games in the StubHub Center, which is also the home to the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer. The Chargers will start the regular season with their new head coach Anthony Lynn.
