It’s only halftime of the first preseason game for the Jets, but they have to like what they have seen from their quarterbacks.
The third overall pick went 9-for-11 for 74 yards and a touchdown in the first half. His 14-yard pass to Charles Johnson for a touchdown came with 45 seconds left in the half and gave the Jets a 17-0 lead over the Falcons.
Jets quarterbacks were 17-for-20 for 163 yards and two touchdowns in the first half.
Starter Josh McCown played only three snaps as the Jets went three-and-out to start the game. He completed his only attempt for 4 yards.
Bridgewater threw his first touchdown pass in two years, a 16-yard toss to Isaiah Crowell in the first quarter. Bridgewater led a field-goal drive on his second of two series before giving way to Darnold.
