Redskins Edge Jets 22-18 In Second Preseason Game

The Redskins snagged a late victory against the New York Jets on Friday night in Landover, Maryland.

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins snagged a late victory against the New York Jets on Friday night in Landover, Maryland. It wasn't pretty late, but Washington's backups sealed the deal late in the fourth quarter.

Colt McCoy filled in for the birthday boy, Kirk Cousins, to lead the burgundy and gold to an extremely impressive...stat line...in the first half. Despite dominating the time of possession in the first quarter (the Jets only had three plays), the Redskins found themselves weirdly down 2-0 to the Jets in the first half before the McCoy to Ross connection started heating up. Rashad Ross had a pair of touchdowns and looked like the league's best #4 or #5 wide receiver tonight.

On defense, it would be hard to complain too loudly about their performance. Early in the game, they were stout and got off the field on third down. Kendall Reyes and Chris Baker looked great along the defensive line and the secondary also played well. DeAngelo Hall looked fine at free safety, and Kendall Fuller had a few bright spots throughout the game.

In the bad news column, Matt Jones suffered a slight dislocation of his AC joint, which is not what you want your starting running back to be dealing with in late August. Can you hear those phones ringing? Veteran running backs around the country are limbering up.

We'll bat this game around for the next week, but my initial gut reaction is positive. Jay Gruden got some of his key backups some very quality playing time against frontline players from New York. The Redskins will host the Buffalo Bills next Friday night at FedEx Field in the all-so-important third preseason game (duh-duh-duuuuuuuuuuuh).
