Carolina Panthers vs. New York Jets: Preseason Week 3 Live Score, Analysis

Ian KenyonFeatured Columnist IJanuary 16, 2017

Three of the most high-profile quarterbacks in the NFL take center stage tonight as the New York Jets play host to the Carolina Panthers at MetLife Stadium.

The dual-headed quarterback threat of Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez has yet to yield positive results for the New York Jets, who have yet to score a touchdown in their two preseason matchups.

In contrast, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has picked up right where he left off last season and had a dynamic performance last week against the Miami Dolphins, completing 8-of-11 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown.

The Carolina Panthers have not won a preseason game on the road since 2007.

Tonight’s showdown will air nationally on NBC, with kickoff scheduled to take place at 8 p.m. ET.

This will be the third game of the preseason for both teams. The third preseason game is commonly the most important, as it is the game that starters play the longest and it is the week before rosters are cut to 53 players.

 

A Couple Storylines to Follow Tonight

  • How will the Jets handle their rotation at right tackle?
  • Can the Jets finally put a touchdown on the board?
  • How does Thomas Davis look coming off injury?
  • Can Cam Newton remain dominant without Steve Smith?
