SCOUTING REPORT

NEW YORK’S RECORD: 0-2
LAST GAME: Lost 45-20 at Oakland

OVERVIEW: Things have been going in the wrong direction for the Jets since they lost a chance at making the playoffs in 2015 with a loss against the Buffalo Bills in the season finale. After a 5-11 record last season, the Jets began this year with losses against the Bills and the Raiders. Veteran Josh McCown has been starting at quarterback over recent draft picks Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenburg, and the team said goodbye to key players like Nick Mangold, David Harris, Darrelle Revis, Brandon Marshall and Sheldon Richardson, who was traded to the Seattle Seahawks this summer. The headliners on the Jets roster are defensive linemen Leonard Williams and Muhammad Wilkerson.

KEY NEW FACES: S Jamal Adams (draft-1st round), S Marcus Maye (draft-2nd), QB Josh McCown (Cleveland), WR Jeremy Kerley (San Francisco), OL Kelvin Beachum (Jacksonville), CB Morris Claiborne (Dallas), WR Jermaine Kearse (Seattle), LB Demario Davis (Cleveland), K Chandler Catanzaro (Arizona)

KEY VETERANS GONE: QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, WR Brandon Marshall, WR Quincy Enunwa (IR), TE Brandon Bostick, K Nick Folk, LB David Harris, DL Sheldon Richardson, S Calvin Pryor, S Marcus Gilchrist, CB Darrelle Revis, C Nick Mangold
