A battle for New York football supremacy between the Jets and Giants on Thursday will help kick off the first week of the 2019 NFL preseason schedule.
Neither team is coming off a very successful 2018 season, and they each went in different directions over the offseason. The Jets made one of the biggest free agent splashes, inking running back Le’Veon Bell, who they hope will form a dynamic tandem with quarterback Sam Darnold. It’s not yet known whether Bell – who held out all of last season – will play Thursday.
The Giants, meanwhile, dealt Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns and are dealing with more wide receiver issues after Golden Tate was suspended and Sterling Shepard is battling injury issues. This will also be the first chance to see Daniel Jones, who was selected No. 6 overall in the NFL Draft. He is expected to battle Eli Manning for the starting quarterback job.
