Need To Know: Flynn, who was signed by Gang Green last month, completed 10 of 14 passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns. Though he did toss an interception, the former Packers and Seahawks signal-caller worked well with the second-team offense and gave himself a strong chance to land the No. 2 QB spot behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, who did not see action Thursday.
Wide receiver Chris Owusu, who continues to receive the praise of everyone around him, turned in another impressive performance in front of the home crowd. The Stanford product hauled in five receptions for 72 yards and a score.
Zac Stacy and Daryl Richardson took the majority of the handoffs out of the backfield against the Eagles, totaling 122 yards and a score (Richardson) on 34 total touches. Stacy also contributed in the passing game, recording two receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown.

What’s Next: The Jets open the regular season at MetLife Stadium against the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 13 at 1 p.m.
All in all it was a pretty solid preseason for the Jets who showed the ability to move the ball on offense and stop opponents on defense and demonstrated some solid depth compared to their competition. Obviously the team has a lot to prove come the regular season but the way that training camp started, it's fair to say that the preseason has ended on a high note.
Some players that stood out? Deion Barnes 1.5 sacks will be hard to ignore. Similarly Jamari Lattimore had a nice play which Mike Maccagnan saw and commented on from the broadcast booth. Darrin Walls two passes defensed and interception should cement him as a backup in the team's secondary. Walter Powell had some electric catches and Zac Stacy might have solidified his role as the team's third running.
Quincy Enunwa struggled a little more over the course of the game and seemed to have injured himself during the first half. Trevor Reilly missed a potential sack of Tim Tebow and Dexter McDougle also got into trouble when he was out of position on a red zone touchdown pass.
While Matt Flynn (10-14 136 yards 2 TDs and 1 INT) likely has the inside track to make this roster, I was impressed with what I saw from Josh Johnson (7-12 82 yards, 76 yards rushing) and think that his play in this game will make a hard decision for the Jets coaching staff on what they want their third quarterback to be. Johnson did a commendable job on his ball placement with new receivers and by using his legs to extend plays - not bad for a player who's barely been with the Jets more than a week.
