Final Score

New York Jets 6, Philadelphia Eagles 0

New York Jets

Veteran cornerback Marcus Cooper had a solid pass breakup in limited action on Thursday night. He earned a 60.3 overall grade across 41 defensive snaps in the week prior but should see his grade increase following this week.

Undrafted rookie offensive tackle Wyatt Miller did not end the preseason on a high note. The 6-foot-4, 306-pound UCF product was woeful in pass protection and added little as a run-blocker against the Jets' defense.

Rookie Takeaways

Minnesota product Blake Cashman had a strong finish to his 2019 NFL preseason, earning high marks in run defense across a heavy snap count on Thursday. Rookie third-rounder Jachai Polite entered Thursday's game with just a 52.3 overall grade across 91 preseason snaps, and he did little to improve on that mark against Philly.

Philadelphia Eagles

Jets defensive backs Josh Hawkins and Jason Thompson both turned in strong performances in this one. Hawkins picked up an interception and a defensive stop in the contest, and Thompson finished with positive marks in coverage on multiple plays.

Eli Harold, a third-round pick out of Virginia from the 2015 class, capped off an unimpressive preseason with yet another unimpressive performance. He earned low marks across the board against New York and entered the game with a 63.6 overall grade.

Rookie Takeaways

Undrafted Rutgers product Kevin Wilkins was a one-man wrecking crew in run defense against the Jets' interior offensive line. Rookie signal-caller Clayton Thorson, a fifth-round Northwestern product, had an ugly performance against New York. He earned a 43.2 passing grade across 43 preseason dropbacks in the three weeks prior, and things did not get better for him this week.
