Final Score: New York Jets: 32 - Jacksonville Jaguars: 3

Both teams entered today's game at 1-0 but only one left 2-0.  As you can tell by the headline, said team was the New York Jets as they jumped out to an early lead against Jack Del Rio's squad ad never looked back.

It started off with an early touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes, a safety, some field goals, a few more touchdowns and that is how the Jets built their lead.  The biggest headline that will come from this game though is on the Jacksonville side of things, which is Blaine Gabbert.

After a terrible three quarters, Luke McCown was benched after going 6/19 for 59 yards, 4 interceptions and a quarterback rating of 1.9.  With the departure of McCown, rookie Blaine Gabbert entered the game and completed five of six passes.  There is no doubt that Jack Del Rio will be asked about Gabbert and who will start next week against Carolina.

The Jets defense really stood out this week as they were able to intercept McCown four times and hold him to 59 yards, and they were also able to contain Maurice Jones-Drew as he rushed for 88 yards on 18 attempts.

It will be interesting to see how each team follows up their performance today as the Jets will travel west to Oakland to take on Darren Mcfadden and the Raiders, which will be the beginning of a long 3-game road trip that also includes the Ravens and Patriots.  Meanwhile, the Jaguars will try to rebound by traveling to Carolina to face rookie Cam Newton and the Panthers
