This won’t be a fun one to watch, unless you are a Jets fan. Mark Sanchez will duel against Blaine Gabbert. Both teams have a quarterback competition going on and nobody is really stepping up to take the starting gig.
Here is a breakdown
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
When: August 17, 2013, 7:30 PM ET
Jaguars broadcast (Kevin Kugler, Mark Brunell):
WTEV 47 (CBS – Jacksonville)
WFTV 9 (ABC – Orlando)
WNBW 9 (NBC – Gainesville)
WCTV 6.2 (MyTV – Tallahassee)
WJHG 7 (NBC – Panama City)
WSAV 3 (NBC – Savannah)
WSWG 44.2 (MyTV – Albany GA)
WMMP 36 (MyTV – Charleston SC)
WTVY 4.3 (CW – Dothan AL)
Jets broadcast (Ian Eagle, Greg Buttle):
WCBS 2 (CBS – New York)
Jets Player to Watch: Chris Ivory
Chris Ivory will see his first action with the Jets and will hope to impress the coaching staff and the fans.
Jaguars Player to Watch: Maurice Jones-Drew
Maurice Jones-Drew should be back on the field also. He has been nursing his foot after a Lisfranc injury and will hopefully show the same burst that he had pre-injury.
Matchup to Watch: The Quarterback Competitions
Someone has to win the starting job on both of these teams. Who will it be? Still think Geno Smith should be the starter on opening day for the Jets and Blaine Gabbert for the Jags.
The Jaguars are just really bad. The Jets are pretty bad also, but I think they are a little better than the Jags.
Jets 17, Jaguars 13
