Given the Packers’ top two quarterbacks were not playing, this game started off in an entertaining way. Both teams scored on their first drive, followed by punts. But then Zach Wilson got the Jets’ offense rolling. He finished a good drive with an 18-yard touchdown to TE Tyler Kroft. Kurt Benkert and the Packers responded with a touchdown of their own before a long kickoff return led to another 18-yard Wilson to Kroft touchdown.

That was the end of the day for Wilson who finished 9-for-11 with 128 yards and 2 touchdowns. His connection with Corey Davis was particularly promising. Davis had 4 receptions on 6 targets for 70 yards, including a couple of big third-down conversions.

Unfortunately for the Jets, that is where the good news ends. The Jets had injury issues for both Jarrad Davis and Conor McDermott. Both players left the field on the cart, adding to a worrying injury list for New York.

For the Packers, the most promising elements of this game were a strong opening performance from RB A.J. Dillon and a solid out for Kylin Hill. Patrick Taylor threw his hat in the ring for a roster spot with 7 carries for 40 yards, and WR Malik Taylor had 4 receptions for 66 yards.
