New York vs. Cincinnati: Jets Preseason Week 2 Game Preview

Coming off an exciting 13-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts at MetLife Stadium, the New York Jets head to Cincinnati hoping for more preseason success against the defending AFC North champion Bengals

The Bengals also played in an entertaining preseason Week 1 contest, as they were just edged out by the Chiefs, 41-39, in a shootout. 

Although Saturday's contest won't show up in the standings, Gang Green will be hoping to exact revenge on a Bengals team that demolished them by 40 points last October. 

Reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year Sheldon Richardson certainly wants to make amends for the defense's poor showing in that game. He told the Jets official website, "We owe them one. We owe them one big-time. That was honestly pretty much the only team that dog-walked this defense like that, honestly, to me personally."

While the main goal of the game is to avoid any major injuries and to evaluate some young players, it's refreshing to hear that New York will be playing tough. 

Rex Ryan is also not going to breeze through Saturday's game, as he sees the contest as a way to assess the starting lineup in full swing.
