We’ve got two games on the docket Sunday night, including our NBC telecast at 8 p.m. ET. (We’ll have a simulcast of Cowboys-Chargers online as well.)
Here’s what we’re looking for in both games.
Bengals @ Jets
The Bengals would love it if rookie quarterback Andy Dalton can show some progress after a rough outing last week. … We’d love it if he can feature rookie wideout A.J. Green down the field more. The kid has looked great in camp. … Tight end Jermaine Gresham is active in a mild surprise. The Bengals starters will play an entire half.
The Jets debut Plaxico Burress, but wideout Derrick Mason and running back Shonne Greene will sit this one out. … Second year offensive linemen Vladimir Ducasse tries to rebound from a rough start to the preseason. New York’s o-line depth looks shaky.
Chargers @ Cowboys
Dallas’ younger, new-look offensive line will get more work together. Rookie guard Bill Nagy will get a chance to start … Cornerback Orlando Scandrick could push for a starting job with Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins out.
The Chargers don’t have a lot of positions up for grabs, which is a good sign. … Antonio Gates will likely sit out for the Chargers despite practicing all week. … Running back Ryan Mathews has steadily improved in camp and will try to prove he’s ready to start.
